FCTA Sets Up Team To Resuscitate Urban Mass Transport Company


The Federal Capital Territory Executive Committee has set up a Ministerial Technical Task Team to work out the modalities for the resuscitation of the Abuja Urban Mass Transport Company Limited.

The committee also directed that the transport company should be resuscitated to meet the goals of providing effective and efficient mass transportation services to the residents.

According to a statement on Tuesday by the FCT Director, Information & Communication, Muhammad Sule, said the decisions were taken during the FCT Executive Committee Meeting.

The statement partly read, “At the meeting chaired by the FCT Minister, Bello challenged the technical team drawn from the Transportation Secretariat, Legal Services Secretariat, Department of Treasury, Abuja Investment Company Limited, and Abuja Infrastructure Investment Centre to ensure that AUMTCO is revived to deliver a world-class, affordable and reliable bus mass transit system for the FCT.

“He added that the committee further approved the strengthening of the Joint Task Force comprising the security Agencies and stakeholder Departments of the FCTA to support the Directorate of Road Traffic Services.”

Sule also said the committee endorsed the pilot census scheme of commercial motorcycle operators in the Federal Capital Territory for the purpose of building a database that is imperative for security profiling.

“The committee noted the fallout of social issues that would arise as a result of the implementation of its decision and therefore, directed that the Transportation Secretariat to collaborate with the Social Development Secretariat and the Abuja Enterprises Agency to come up with a programme on skills acquisition for operators of commercial motorcycles willing to take up a new trade”, he added.
