Gov.Alia Unveils Aquisition Of 100 Buses To Ease Workers' Transportation In Benue

Benue State Government says it has acquired 100 buses to be allocated to Benue Links, the state-owned transportation company, to mitigate the effect of removal of fuel subsidy and ease the movement of workers and people in the state 

Governor Hyacinth Alia who announced this in his broadcast message on a radio and television as part of Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Anniversary celebrations in Makurdi, acknowledged the hardships faced by the people due to the elimination of fuel subsidies and other challenging economic conditions in the country.

His words, “Our good people of Benue, I share the pains most of you are going through; and I assure you that your resilience and patience would not be in vain as this administration continues to reposition, as well as strengthen our institutions for good governance. I want to assure you that succour is on the way.
“In the meantime, we have procured 100 buses, which will soon be handed over to Benue Links, the state’s transportation company, to offer affordable transportation services to the public,”

Governor Alia also assured those in the informal sector, particularly market women of financial assistance, saying plan is underway for provision of N50,000 financial assistance to each of the market women, with the aim of enhancing their small-scale trading businesses.

He emphasized the importance of security in achieving the administration’s ambitious goals for good governance, adding no society could thrive amidst rampant violence, including killings, kidnappings, banditry, communal conflicts, and similar challenges.
