We’ll stop unpainted, unregistered taxicabs in FCT – Wike



The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has disclosed that the FCT Administration is putting structures in place that would ensure that only registered taxis painted in Abuja colours are allowed to operate in the FCT.

Wike stated this on Wednesday during a meeting with traditional rulers and area council chairmen in Abuja.

He said: “Very soon, we are going to roll out our buses, which will be painted in Abuja colour. In that case, we will not allow taxis that are not painted in Abuja colour to operate here, so that those “one chance” will no longer be there,” he said.

The minister added that the FCTA will also provide bus terminals for various routes in the FCT, which will serve as the operational base for registered buses and taxis in the FCT.

“If we have three to four terminals, it will be designed in such a way that these vehicles will go to so so areas. If you are travelling to so so area, go to that terminal, and those that will operate there are taxis and buses that we have profiled, and we know them,” he further stressed.
