Gowon tasks transporters on sector reform

The Former Head of State, Retired Gen. Yakubu Gowon, has urged stakeholders, policy makers and technical experts in the transport sector to create innovative strategies that could upgrade the transportation system in the country.

The reports said that the theme of the meeting was ‘Building Sustainable Transport Infrastructure in Nigeria: Opportunities, Innovation and Technologies.’

We must embark upon an intensive campaign to make more public and private sectors accountable and performance oriented, with a view to provide the citizenry with an efficient transport system.

We should also inculcate a code of ethical conduct, transparency and accountability into the whole transportation system for national development.

“The task of advancing the transport system cannot be left to government alone. It requires partnership between the public, private sector participation, civil society and the general public.

Confidence and support are paramount in this campaign of building a virile transport system in our country.

It is worthy to note that the summit is designed to provide a platform for critical examination and participation on the way forward of the concept of the economy that affects all other sectors for national development.

Gowon reiterated the need to be involved in finding ways to improve the transportation sector, and not to destroy what we had like it recently happened in Lagos, during the #EndSARS crisis where over 150 government-owned buses were destroyed.

He added that the country should embark on a realistic and honest assessment of the National Transportation System in the country and repositioning the sector. Also speaking, the President of CIOTA, Bashir Jamoh, said that the summit was organised to brainstorm on how to improve infrastructure in the transportation sector for seamless carriage of goods and services by sea, road or by rail.

He stressed the need for members to engage in continuous development to enable them operate in line with global best practices in the transportation sectors.
