By Joyce Remi-Babayeju

The FCT Minister, Barr. Nyesom Wike has said that the bus terminals in the territory will reduce incidences of one chance and kidnapping.

Wike said this on Monday at the Kugbo Bus Terminal official flag- off ceremony.

He said,”When this bus terminal is completed, you can identify or know the person who is picking you and taking you safely wherever you are going. It will also reduce one chance.

“You are on the road, you don’t know who has the car and the person tells you, are you going to Nyanya and you say yes , you enter. The next story you will hear is that the person has been kidnapped.”

With this, you don’t need to go and wait on the road, you just come to the bus terminal and board wherever you are going, this will reduce the level of insecurity, he emphasized.

“The Administration of Mr. President is not just for the elites or those who can afford it, but for people who cannot afford it. Look at the kind of rainfall today, how many people will be on the road waiting for taxis or buses. They have to go back to their houses and probably not be able to go to work today for their daily activities.”

The FCT Minister lamented that a great city like Abuja until now lacks proper public transportation, promising that in the next thirteen months there will be a change in FCT transportation system.

He thanked the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, and the Chairman Committee on FCT for the approval of funds in the 2024 Appropriation budget for the projects.

Wike said,”You would have said no to a project of almost 16 billion Naira, you are putting in only 1 billion in the budget, which means that that project will never see the light of the day. All our projects today that we are doing, we have adequate funding provided in the budget.”
The Kugbo Bus Terminal was officially flagged off by the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio.
