The Niger state Government says the ban on articulated vehicles from plying the Minna-Bida road will come into effect by midnight of September 15, 2020, saying this has become necessary to ensure speedy completion of the road project.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, of Niger state, Mrs. Mary Noel-Berje, made available to SummitNews, says the Chairman of the State Infrastructure and Monitoring Committee Ibrahim Balarabe, stated this after an expanded meeting of the Committee held at the Government House, Minna, the state capital. 

According to the statement, the ban is not meant to inflict pain on any person or group of persons, but rather to effect improvement on the road infrastructure of the state.

“While the modalities for the ban will be made public as events unfold, the state government regrets any inconveniences this may cause the people, and calls for the cooperation and support of the people to ensure that the desired objective is achieved,” the statement concludes.
