Officer (PRO), Speaking to newsmen this evening after their inauguration at TAHIR GUEST PALACE Danfulani said scarcity of foreign currencies was posing threat to the ability of NARTO members to import spare parts for their vehicles manufactured abroad.
He added however, that Nigerians should support President Muhammdu Buhari in his efforts to rid the nation of corruption and insecurity, saying before his emergence as president, transporters had endured serious suffering.
We struggled to ensure Buhari’s success at the 2015 elections because our members have suffered especially in the height of the insurgency in the North-east. Our vehicles have been burnt or seized together with goods worth of huge amounts of money. But we are happy the situation is subsiding so we have a duty to support Buhari, Danfulani said.
He also appealed to the federal government to repair damaged federal roads across the county, noting that good roads were critical to security and safety of citizens.
On his part, the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps FRSC Kano Command, Aminu Umar Jabaka called on the NARTO members to install speed limiting devices on their vehicles, saying enforcement for installing the devices would begin on April 1, 2016.
