FCTA EXPRESSES READINESS TO REHABILITATE AND REVAMP TAXI RANKS AND TERMINALS TO A BEFITTING STANDARD                                                                                        23-11-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                   The Federal Capital Territory Administration has expressed its readiness to rehabilitate and revamp taxi ranks and terminals to the standard befitting of a federal Capital city.

This is part of measures to rid the Territory of illegal motor parks and the criminalities associated with them.

Speaking during a stakeholders meeting involving Terminal and Taxi Rank Managers in Abuja, the Mandate Secretary, Transportation Secretariat, Mr. Ubokutom Nyah decried the infiltration and proliferation of illegal motor parks within the City.

According to Mr. Nyah, his visit to some of the Taxi Ranks, Terminals and illegal motor parks in the company of the Management Team of the Secretariat afforded him the opportunity to have first hand information of the ugly state of the facilities.

He maintained that Abuja, being the Federal Capital City deserves more than what it had at the moment, noting that the state of the terminals, taxi ranks and illegal motor parks in the City were attracting crimes and criminalities.

The FCT Transport Secretary informed the Operators of the terminals and taxi ranks that having failed all the Terms and Conditions of their engagement, the Federal Capital Administration was left with no option but to terminate their engagement and directed them to hand over the Ranks to the Administration within three months.

He explained that the action was not to punish them but to reposition the sector, bring new terms of engagement and provide the Federal Capital Territory with modern Taxi Ranks and Terminals, increase their number where necessary and improve on the revenue profile for the Administration.

The Secretary however assured that the Administration will still consider the present operators that have the capacity to develop the Taxi Ranks and Terminals in line with the new vision.

Responding, the Operator of Jahi Taxi Rank, Mr Adebisi Lawal commended the Administration’s move to modernise the taxi ranks and terminals but pleaded that the current operators should be given due consideration in the choice of new developers.
