nyesom Wike reveals new plans for FCT, Abuja

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike has disclosed that discussions were ongoing with private partners to ensure that operators of buses and taxi services in the FCT were registered and assigned operational routes for security reasons.

The minister also disclosed that the FCTA will soon begin the construction of bus terminals to serve the various routes in the FCT.

Wike disclosed this when he received the Belgian Ambassador to Nigeria, Pieter Leenknegt, who paid a courtesy visit to the FCT Administration on Wednesday.

He said the project was at its procurement stage and work would commence as soon as the procurement process was concluded.

“We are also trying to build terminals for buses and taxis. For example, we will not have public taxis on the road. You must go to a particular terminal where passengers will be and where the drivers are identified,”

“These are efforts we are putting in place to see that not only is it decent, but in terms of fighting insecurity and we believe by the grace of God, when we have the approval from the Bureau of Public Procurement, we believe in the next one month, construction ought to have started.”
