Kogi State Commissioner for Transportation, Baron Okwoli has vowed that the Lokoja Mega Terminal (LMT) will not be allowed to waste away.
Okwoli made this known when he led committee members to inspect facilities at the mega park.
He stated that all hands will be on deck to ensure compliance with Governor Yahaya Bello’s marching order to make the terminal be put into full use by end of July 2020.
He assured that Kogi state will no doubt wear a new look as the transportation sector will be transformed.
Okwoli, while giving an update on operational levies for different categories of vehicles, said thorough research and calculations have been made to that effect, adding that more updates would be delivered to committee members.
Recall that the governor had inaugurated three separate committees to work out modalities for the smooth take- off of the terminal.
Lokoja ultra modern park was commissioned with the aim of ensuring that transportation activities (inter-state, intercity and intra-city) are conducted in a secured and conducive environment without any adverse effect on traffic flow within Lokoja City.
The Lokoja Mega Terminal has the capacity of retaining not less than 500 vehicles at a time.
Facilities at the terminal includes a food court, terminal building, ATM gallery, loading bays, security posts, gate houses, drivers lounge, rest rooms, mechanical workshops, generator/power house, car wash, VIO/ KOTRAMA section amongst others.
