ABUJA – The Manager of Peace Motor Transport Company, Mr David Okoroafor, on Monday appealed to the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) to ban the operation of illegal motor parks within the territory in view of the security challeges.
Okoroafor made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
He, however, advised commuters to desist from patronising illegal motor parks and roadside commercial vehicles.
‘’In a city such as Abuja, for us to allow illegal motor parks to operate is quite unfortunate. ‘’We, as a company, have tried on our own to stop them and you can notice at the entrance of our gate, some illegal loading activities going on there.[eap_ad_2]
‘’We have written to all the government agencies involved, we have written to Utako Police Station, Vehicle Inspection Officer (VIO) and the Federal Road Safety.
‘’We have done this to partner with all these agencies to stop all the illegal loading, but to no avail.”
He said that measures had been put in place to regulate the activities of the illegal motor parks in order to protect lives and property of passengers.
‘’These things are measures which we put in place to see how we can protect our own investment and also the general public.
‘’Because allowing private park operators to be operating within the premises was a threat to us and entire Abuja environment. ‘’
Okoroafor, however, advised the the FCT Administration to ban the illegal motor parks operating within the territory.[eap_ad_3]
