FCTA to Strengthen Transport Policy

The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello said transportation system in Abuja would be strengthened in line with the city Master Plan to improve security of lives and property.

The minister made this disclosure, while receiving officials of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), FCT Chapter yesterday in Abuja.

Bello said such policy would be aimed at devising very efficient and scientific ways of operating as well as handling large numbers of commuters.

According to him, "We also have our plans and programmes as to what we want transport management in Abuja to be, based on the master plan and our focus and for us to be able to cater for the high number of people in Abuja".

"But we will sit down with you and streamline it so that if somebody comes in, I will know this is not the type of driver or vehicle we want in Abuja. We will tell him to park it at the border and then enter our own kind of vehicles," he emphasized.

Speaking earlier, the chairman of the NURTW, Alhaji Isah Dahiru Usman commended the minister for adopting various strategies towards addressing infrastructure deficit in the FCT.

He decried the illegal taxation by agents of the FCT Area Councils who harass their members across the Territory under the guise of collecting taxes and levies.
