FCT: Kugbo bus terminal will reduce insecurity – Wike

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has highlighted the importance of the recently flagged-off taxi and bus terminal in Abuja.

Wike spoke during the flag-off of the construction of the Kugbo Bus and Taxi Terminal in the Karu District of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

The FCT Minister, while also noting the discomfort experienced by commuters in the FCT, especially during the rainy season and the attendant loss of man hours, due to the absence of public transportation infrastructure, said the provision of the bus terminal will make commuting in the FCT a more pleasurable experience and will also improve security.

“When this is completed, what it means is that you will have access to the place, whether it’s raining or not. You are sure of being conveyed on vehicles you can identify, you know who is in charge of the vehicle and will take you safely to wherever you are going.

“Again, it will reduce this issue of one chance. You are on the road, you don’t know who has the car and the person tells you, you are going to Nyanya and you say yes. Then the next story you hear is that the person has been kidnapped.

“So, this will make sure that you don’t need to go and wait on the road. You just come to the terminal, there is a bus, there is a taxi and we know who is the driver of the taxi or who is the driver of the bus. So, in that case, it will reduce the level of insecurity,” he said.

Wike further disclosed that adequate arrangements have been made for the efficient operation of the bus terminal upon its completion, according to international standard practices, warning that touting will not be allowed at the terminal. He also added that the FCT Transportation Secretariat will also provide supervisory services at the bus terminal.
