Oloriburuku govt.....were you collecting taxes from normal taxis and danfo buses before the emergence of these companies whose only sin is to provide jobs for your citizens? Everywhere you smell money, you will frustrate the business owners until you people take over or have a share in the pie. Useless Alausa people!
