Welcome To The Official Blog Of Adamawa Ministry Of Information

The Honourable Minister, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Malam 
Muhammad Musa Bello, has commended the Special Ministerial Task 
Team on Traffic Decongestion along AYA/Nyanya for delivering on its 
mandate of decongesting traffic on that road axis within a very short 
time frame.

The Minister made the commendation when he received the interim report 
of the activities of the Task Team in his office. Speaking further, he said that 
his conviction that the affairs of  Nigeria can be changed for the better has 
been buttressed by the zeal and dedication the Task Team put into the 
assignment and the result it achieved in record time.
He stressed that the problems of managing the FCT are from within and these
 can be fixed with and by dedicated people who will put in their best and
 be committed to make the difference. He assured that all the recommendations
 made by the Task Team will be implemented.

In the words of the Minister,  “The conviction of our dear President that if we all
 put in our best we can change this country, and this has been clearly 
demonstrated by your well-coordinated team. It shows you also that all the
 solutions to all our problems are actually within us, it’s just a matter of everybody
 being dedicated, putting in their best”.

He then advised that there was a need for coordinated and concerted efforts by all 
stakeholders for things to work. He continued “… one tree cannot make a forest
 and you cannot survive if you are just an island. So you have to relate with 
people around you, relate with relevant officers and at the end of the day if we all
 do that, Nigeria is going to be better”

In his presentation , the Chairman of the Task Team, Mr Ikharo Attah
 emphasized that there was a need to sustain efforts to check the excesses 
of motorists, as even the current  expansion work by the Federal Government
 on that road will not make a difference if this was not done.

According to Mr Attah one of such excesses was the unwillingness of  uniformed
 personnel to obey traffic rules and comply with road traffic directives. He also 
said that many drivers lacked lane discipline and exhibited arrogance while
 driving with little consideration for the rights of other road users. He also 
explained that traffic clogging at the Nasarawa State axis of the road made it
 difficult for the Team to manage traffic. He therefore reiterated that the FRSC should be involved
 in the simultaneous control of traffic in Nasarawa State and the FCT.

Recommendations made by the Team include a total stoppage of roadside 
trading, concerted enlightenment campaign for uniformed personnel and
 immediate fixing of potholes along the road that hinder the free flow of traffic.
It would be recalled that the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello
 had inaugurated the Task Team two weeks ago with a  mandate to clear 
the traffic gridlock and ensure free flow of traffic along the AYA/Nyanya 
road as part of measures by the Administration to ease the discomfort of
 motorists who ply that route on a daily basis.
