The Commissioner for Transport, Chief Godswill Uche Nwanoruo, made this known during the inauguration of the Ministry’s Special Duty Taskforce on Transportation at the Conference Hall of the Ministry.

He noted that the Governor of the state, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, also directed the ministry to regulate the movement of articulated vehicles from the 14th of February 2022.
According to him, from the said date, no truck or trailer would be allowed to ply roads in Umuahia and Aba metropolis between the hours of 6am and 9pm, so as to curtail the incessant road accidents caused by these vehicles.
Inaugurating the Special Duty Taskforce, the Commissioner charged the members to see the opportunity as one to serve Abians and urged them not to be uncivil in their duties.
Members of the Special Duties Taskforce include representatives of the four motor unions in the state (RTEAN, NURTW, NARTO, and COOPERATIVE), staff and directors of the Ministry of Transport.
