Kogi State Commissioner for Transport, Hon. Baron Joseph Okwoli has said the Ministry of Transport will not rescind on its commitment to move all commercial vehicles to the Terminus Mega Park.
He made the the statement during his inspection tour to the Terminus Park in Lokoja with his management staff.
He said, after the inspection, that the mega park has the capacity to accommodate commercial vehicles with other activities taking place in the premises.
Recall that Okwoli had earlier met with the Nigerian Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Kogi state chapter and other relevant stake holders to seek collaboration on the move.
Okwoli said the ministry will not fold its arms and watch the resources wasting away in Kogi state but will swing into action to ensure that all abandoned properties are resuscitated and made useful for the good people of Kogi state.
He said movement to the Terminus Park will reduce the incidence of “one chance”, help in proper monitoring of vehicular movements, secure the lives and properties of passengers and decongest the highways.
Okwoli, however, reiterated the ministry’s mandate to move all vehicles to the Terminus mega park which will take effect March 1st 2020.
