Rescue Agenda on Transportation 2016-10-20T13:38:20+00:00


Efficient transport is a critical component of economic development because it links factors of production together in a web of relationships among producers, and between producers and consumers, as well as provide the means to attain economies of scale.

We will pay attention to the transportation sector to enhance economic development by improving the value and effectiveness of movement of people, goods, and services; reducing the cost of passenger and freight, and increasing access to the wider market. Immediate attention will be turned to rural and urban roads, bridges, and airways. Feasibility of inland waterways will be examined, while railways will be considered in liaison with the Federal Government. As a quick win measure, the Taraba State Transport Corporation (TSTC) and its terminal will be revamped through a public-private-partnership arrangement.
