This was disclosed by the Commissioner for Transport Mrs Patricia Igwebuike.

Mrs Igwebuike said that the move which will be under the Public-Private Partnership arrangement is part of the efforts of the Professor Chukwuma Soludo administration to make transportation accessible to the people.

Mrs Igwebuike explained further that the present administration has a series of innovations that can change the landscape of Anambra State, called on the people to see the development of Anambra State as a collective responsibility.
