Nasarawa Launches Transport Outfit to Subsidise Fares

CHIGOZIE AMADI

The Nassrawa State Government has launched a transport outfit  to alleviate the current economic hardship of residents by subsidising transport fares.

Senior Special Assistant to Governor Abdullah I Sule on Public Affairs, Peter Ahemba, disclosed this in a statement he issued to journalists in Lafia yesterday.

Ahemba, however, added that the new buses have formally been launched by state governor at a ceremony held at the Yahaya Sabo Bus Terminal, Lafia, who was represented by the state Commissioner for Works and Transport, Alhaji Adamu Gosho.

According to the SSA, “the introduction of the new buses is no doubt, a conscious effort and a milestone by the Engr. Sule’s administration towards alleviating the current economic hardship, including high cost of road transportation to improve the living condition of residents of the state.”

He emphasised that this development marked the beginning of a new era of improved connectivity and accessibility within the state.

Ahenba maintained: “We make bold to say that residents and visitors of Nasarawa State now have the opportunity to enjoy enhanced commuting experience, with subsidised fares, reduced travel times, increased comfort, and improved reliability.”
