Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike has said that his administration will stop the operation of tricycle, (Keke Napep) in some areas of the FCT.
He also promised that the menace of one-chance crime would soon be over in Abuja, saying there will be no operation of Keke Napep in Asokoro and Maitama.
Wike said the FCDA would be rolling out buses and taxes very soon to solve the problem of transportation.
The minister, who was addressing Estate Developers and Residents’ Associations in the Federal Capital Territory called on the residents to cooperate with the FCDA by paying their taxes.
“These buses and taxis will ply all the routes in Asokoro and Maitama. We are kicking out Keke Napep at least in these areas. Some of these Keke Napep are agents of criminals,” he said.
Wike added that “if we have the buses, people will prefer to come from their areas and come to work and go back. It is painful but it’s an inconvenience that we must face”.
