The National Council on Transportation (NCT) policy in a resolution yesterday in Sokoto state, recommended bicycle riding for solving the mystery of traffic jam in the country.
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, disclosed this at the end of the 15th meeting of National Council on Transportation. We decided that we do it in Abuja because if you check, nearly all the roads in Abuja have lanes for bicycle.
You may ask why bicycle but don’t forget that it is there in China, in UK, Spain and many other countries.
The benefit is that it is an investment first and secondly it will help in the exercise and thirdly it will reduce the number of passengers jostling for motor vehicles.
