Malay Usman Wuro-Hausa, described the General Manager as an astute administrator and one who want to change the fortune of the company as a revenue generation outfit that can complement the government efforts towards delivering the dividend of democracy.
He stated that Governor Jibrilla is making great effort towards the company in order to assist the poor people in their day-to-day transportation in and outside the state at a relatively low cost.
The concern of the state chief executive saw to the construction of a befitting office complex of the ministry in charge of the transport company. This would go a long way in strengthening the ties between the mother ministry and the transport company.
The General Manager is also making effort towards having a modern workshop for the company so as to ease the problem of the maintenance of the vehicles of the company now and the near future.
The appointment of Engineer Ahmed Baba Nyako, is in the right direction at this material time as the government is exploring ways of generating revenue. It is imperative for the General Manager to justify his appointment for the overall benefit of the state.
