Ebonyi Govt To Revitalize EBOTRANS Company

By Agbo Amauche, Abakaliki 

Ebonyi State Government under the leadership of Governor Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru has assured to make Ebonyi Transport Services (EBOTRANS) one of the leading transport companies in the Country.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on transport, Chief Fredrick Nwogbaga  stated this when he inspected serviceable and unserviceable vehicles at EBOTRANS head office Abakaliki.

The Governor's aide who was taken round the premises where he inspected over fourty unserviceable vehicles, promised that he would intimate the State Governor about the condition of the vehicles so that the Government can look into them and know the next line of action but appealed them to give Government time as it is still new.

He expressed optimism that the present Government under chief Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru  would give the cooperation a facelift. 

Chief Nwogbaga however,  cautioned transporters across the State to avoid reckless driving and consider their lives, those of their passengers, as well as other road users and encourage street traders within the State capital to relocate to the Saint Margret Umahi International market to pave way for free flow of vehicular and human movement, adding that the development would reduce unwarranted accidents.

He further urged illegal park operators across the State capital to relocate to the State Government approved central motor park, opposite Saint Margret Umahi International market, warning that anybody caught loading at the unauthorized motor parks would be arrested and his vehicle be confiscated by the State Government.
In their good will messages, the acting general Manager, EBOTRANS, Dr. Simon Idenyi, the operation's Manager of EBOTRANS, Chief Achike Odigbo and the company Depot Manager, Mrs Beatrice Nweke as well as the Chief Driver of EBOTRANS, Mr. Christian Okpaga appealed to the State Government to help revive the sector by bringing more functional vehicles for optimal services delivery and promised to work with the SSA to achieve good result for Government.

Some travelers including Mr. Simon Onwe and Mrs Gloria Okorie who said they were traveling to Ishiagu appealed to the Government to put more vehicles in the company to ease their movements as the cooperation has few vehicles.

Other places inspected by the SSA included Ishieke park, Presco flyover park and Sperando plaza park. The SSA directed the people to immediately relocated to the central park as any  vehicle seen in those parks from Monday next week would be impounded by the State  Government.

He thereafter announced the ban of any kind of taskforce, saying that his office would reconstitute another set of taskforce in due time.

The SSA was accompanied to the inspection by the HOD of transport Engr. Nwankwo Anene and staff of the Ministry.
