The Federal Government has declared that the land transport sub-sector is on the brink of a transformative shift with the imminent implementation of the National Land Transport Policy.

Minister of Transportation, Saidu Alkali, made this known on Wednesday while delivering his keynote address at the stakeholders’ validation forum, which was convened to enable the review and validation of the draft policy document of the National Land Transportation Policy (NLTP), according to a statement on the Ministry’s website.

Alkali noted that the land transport sub-sector was presently the weakest link in the whole transportation sector in the transport and logistics value chain, hence the need for a policy that will engender its transformation, particularly since it is the major linkage to social, regional, national, and international markets.

The Minister of Transportation articulated the urgency of the validation exercise of the policy by the stakeholders, to produce a document that will serve and foster sustainable growth for the transportation sub-sector and Nigeria at large, so it can be presented to the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
