FCT Minister to Shut Illegal Car Parks in Abuja, Expands Tricycle Ban

The Minister, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammed Bello has said all illegal car parks would be closed to ensure safety in FCT.

Mr. Bello said this during his recent advocacy visit to the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) headquarters recently in Abuja.

He noted that Abuja had gone beyond earlier expectation of the plan in terms of influx of vehicles, saying “Criminality has increased just like vehicles have increased in FCT. Therefore, all illegal motor parks will be closed to ensure safety.

”Designated areas for tricycles will be highly restricted. Keke will only be allowed in estates. They will be banned in Asokoro and Life Camp.

“All these are in the laws but they are not being implemented and we would have to start implementing them.

”Advocacy will be carried out. With advocacy, additional pedestrian bridges would be created,” he said.
