LOKOJA 1.6 BILLION NAIRA MODERN TERMINAL ABANDONED BY YAHAYA BELLO ADMINISTRATION.
This Capt Idris Wada Gives Kogi Unforgettable Parting Gift and abandoned by the government of Yahaya Bello. In what might be considered a huge gift from the former governor to the state, Idris Wada of Kogi state then launched the ultra-modern Lokoja mega terminal.
This terminal/park has what it takes to gives lokoja a new and beautiful look by ensuring no trailer is seeing parking on the hig way.
This park has Space for Banking and the parking space for trailers and other road users which will increase the state IGR
Unfortunately we have a government that is a strong believer of feeding bottle system, only relying on Abuja allocation nothing to increase or generate state IGR legitimately except the ones they collected through harassment.
It’s a Strategic investment in infrastructure aimed at changing and shaping the orientation of critical stakeholders in the public transport system such as commercial vehicle operators is not only a commendable way to go, but the only one. This Mega terminal will aid in providing operators with the right psyche. And with the undeniable rise of terrorists and retrogressive elements targeting public spaces, a controlled and secured environment like this becomes imperative. I am indeed delighted that the government of Kogi state stayed true to its course of people-oriented programmes despite the extremely challenging economic times for the country.
I remember vividly then Former Governor Idris Wada in his remark said the construction of the terminal would solve the problem of disorganized parking of vehicles around the town.
The transport terminal will solve the problem of indiscriminate parking and disorganized motor park activities around the town that have contributed to creating traffic gridlocks in Lokoja. Other aspects of the transport master plan for the state include the Lokoja subsidized bus service, the Lokoja interstate franchise service, the Lokoja intra-city bus service and water transportation service.
