I want to commend your initiative in the direction of decongesting the state capital, that is giving us some sense belonging in driving with ease within the metropolis. Since assumption in workplace because the director basic of the division of public transportation(DOPT). You have set clear and enviable data that historical past won’t neglect in a rush. I consider your methods and foresight are good in the direction of getting calabar to reclaim and preserve its clear commonplace. This methods to some are wild and inhuman particularly to market girls who promote at street aspect. However, we perceive the truth that their security is a precedence.
The transport sector is one with large problem particularly with the persona concerned. I’ve watched the sector develop and decline in income and commonplace.
The enforcement of the usage of SEAT BELT by the officers of this division was a juicy a part of authorities pocket which is lifeless. This was a security measure that translated into income to the federal government coffers. Please sir, I want you revisit that half.
Also, few years in the past, all transport operators in calabar had stickers that carried variety of a automobile registered together with your division for simple identification in time of crime or theft. This quantity was assigned by your division to operators for ease passengers who fall sufferer of these utilizing public technique of transportation to commit havoc and growing crime price within the state.
It’s very worrisome that each automobile proprietor who turns into out of the blue broke, makes use of his automobile for such an criminal activity. Some kidnap actions are profitable mainly for poor checks and steadiness within the sector which might be prevented if stringent measures are taken to reverse this irregular pattern.
Finally, the federal government of Cross River State may develop into competitor not simply regulator within the sector. The crossline busses may be revamped to assist commuters and generate extra sources to the federal government. The calabar city transit that slumped within the first year of this administration may be reconsidered for efficient competitors with different transport businesses. Sir, if that is considered will probably be one undertaking that can cut back hardship and drop value of products and companies, with different quite a few deserves.
Thanks on your standard operation.
