The FCTA on Tuesday inaugurated the private sector transportation scheme with 14 high-capacity, fully air-conditioned buses, signaling the commencement of an inventive approach to enhance security and efficiency in mass transit across Abuja.

The Mandate Secretary, FCTA Secretariat of Transportation, Arc Ubokutom Nyah, during the inauguration, highlighted the visionary efforts of the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, in reshaping Abuja’s transportation system.

Nyah revealed that many other private sector investors were expected to join efforts in providing reliable and affordable alternatives to meet the city’s transportation needs.

“The journey to what we are witnessing today started months ago when the company applied to the Transportation Secretariat for issuance of operator license to enable the buses to operate in the FCT.

“We are happy that our efforts for private sector participation in the transportation sector are yielding results.

“This is a clear confirmation of private sector reaction to the charisma of our honourable minister, Barr. Ezenwo Nyesom Wike in attracting development to Abuja.
