The Benue State government has reaffirmed its commitment to changing the power and transport sectors to serve the critical needs of the people.
Barr Omale Omale, the Commissioner for Transport and Power, announced this on Monday in Makurdi.
The commissioner said that Governor Hyacinth Alia is committed to fostering growth in these industries because of their importance to reviving the state’s economy.
In his view, the Governor Alia administration’s establishment of the Ministry of Power and Transport is crucial because the industry is so vital.
Omale stated that initiatives have been taken to ensure that the state-owned Benue Links Transport Company continues to provide excellent service to its customers and maintain its status as the premier transportation provider in the state.
Eighty percent of the new buses the business ordered have been delivered, and evaluations of each one’s safety features have begun.
The commissioner promised the people of Benue that buses from Benue Links would travel to all 23 of the state’s local government areas, with plans to keep a steady flow of buses arriving and leaving each area to mitigate the effects of the subsidy’s elimination.
The man spoke thusly:
We plan to build it such that there is always a car entering a municipality for everyone who leaves.
Omale emphasized that the city of Makurdi’s North Bank and Wurukum Parks would be reclaimed from unlawful inhabitants and renovated to improve amenities for visitors.
