The sum of N500m has been approved as grant by the Federal Government from the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programmes (SURE-P) as palliative to existing registered transport operators in the Federal Capital Territory.

Minister of FCT, Senator Bala Mohammed also announced that the suspended restriction of mini-bus operations in the nation’s capital will resume in three weeks.

The FCDA had earlier restricted unlicensed commercial transport operators in the nation’s capital as part of a new policy to decongest the city centre of vehicular traffic.

The minister also announced that 10,000 mini-bus conductors will be employed and paid regular salaries under the new transport policy to prevent issues of mass unemployment and insecurity that may arise from implementation of the policy.

  1. Good one, sen bala mohammed but try as much as possible to orientate both the new and the existing bus drivers about the usefulness of time. It won’t be necessary or good enough to spend hours at the bus stop. I think they should deal with time. I suggest 30minutes is enough for each bus to spend on quee…what i’m trying to say is that lets integrate time too into the transports operation in FCT Abuja. Thanks and God bless. Its a welcome idea. Good job sir.
