The Enugu State Commissioner for Transport, Obi Ozor, has promised Enugu residents that his ministry would provide quality services, grow the economy and provide job opportunities for the teeming youths.
The commissioner made this known during the inspection of the ongoing projects undertaken by the state government in the ministry in Enugu.
He noted that the ministry was already working in line with the vision and mission of Gov. Peter Mbah, who had pledged to bring a multi-modal means of transportation to the state.
Ozor disclosed that sit-at-home was canceled in the state, followed by the enhanced security situation, there had been an influx of people; businessmen and women coming into the state to negotiate businesses and also to invest.
He said, no means of transportation will be left behind because Enugu State is the epicenter of the SouthEast region.
Additionally, the commissioner stated that Enugu was a coastal state and as such, relentless efforts were being made to ensure that goods coming into the state and the ones being exported were done through the waterways, airspace, railways and roads.
He stressed that an improved transport system would ensure regional integration of the South-East economy and equally create massive employment opportunities for the youth.
Ozor, however, applauded the state government for its efforts in making the transport system in the state work effectively.
He said the state was also constructing a hall where all the stakeholders in the transport system would be having their monthly town-hall meetings.
He added that the monthly town hall meeting was necessary because the state could not achieve a quality transport system without involving stakeholders in the process.
“His Excellency’s vision is to move our economy from $4.4 billion to $30 billion and the transportation sector has to play a pivotal role in delivering that target.
