And for those of us who have been crying about our ban of tricycles in the night, this is an effective replacement. And so, the ban on the tricycle in the night continues. Now, we have taxis that will be running within the city of Yenagoa and beyond, we have taxis that will be running the Niger Delta University, Amassoma, the Airport and the Federal University, Otueke.

And today has come to mark the end of what we have been suffering under the ban on the tricycle at night and under the new policies to the increase in transportation fares. And we believe that, this will now be our palliative for now at the land sector,” Governor Diri stated.

The cabs and buses will not be giving to individuals like the previous government arrangements.

The keys to the vehicles were handed over to the General Manager, Bayelsa Transport Company, (Hon.) Chief Imomotimi Fanama, who was earlier introduced to the event by the Commissioner for Transport, Grace Ekiotenne.
