ABUJA TRAFFIC CRISIS: MINISTER CALLS FOR COLLABORATION AMONG SECURITY AGENTS 


In a bid to curb the chaotic traffic problem in the Federal Capital Territory, the FCT Minister, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed has called for renewed synergy and collaboration among security agents that have anything to do with road transportation.
The Minister gave this challenge on Friday while meeting with the security agents including officers of the Nigeria Police Force, FCT Vehicle Inspection Officers, Federal Road Safety Commission, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps as well as FCT Transportation Secretariat in his office at Area 11, Garki I District, Abuja. 


Senator Mohammed expressed dissatisfaction with the performance of the Transportation officials as well as the security agents charged with the responsibility of managing traffic in the Federal Capital Territory; lamenting that they are never seen when there is traffic crisis but reiterated that he did not call them to apportion blame other than proffering practical solutions.
According to him, there is the need for synergy and cooperation amongst all stakeholders including the security agents as well as Road Transport Owners Association and National Union of Road Transport Workers.
The Minister further lamented that all the traffic problems being experienced in the Federal Capital Territory especially in the city centre is due to  lack of discipline and value degeneration; stressing that such indiscipline must be arrested by the security agents as it is unacceptable.
He insisted that the security agents must make the system work by putting a halt to the situation and enforcing existing road traffic regulations because Abuja cannot continue in this way.
The Minister revealed that the FCT Administration intends to open special account for transport management in the Federal Capital City where levies/charges from traffic offenders will be lodged for the development of the sub-sector.
Responding, the representative of the FCT Police Commissioner, Assistant Police Commissioner Wilson Inalegwu thanked the Minister for the wake-up call which he noted will definitely strengthen their operation thereby making a difference.
He expressed concern on the level of indiscipline by motoring public on the Abuja highway.
The meeting was also attended by the FCT Permanent Secretary, Dr. Biodun Nathaniel Olorunfemi and the FCT Chief of Staff, Alhaji Musa Yashi.
