Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), has urged the federal government to stop controlling the distribution of petrol and ensure end to products scarcity in the country.
Alhaji Musa Isiwele, the National President of RTEAN told newsmen on Sunday in Abuja that the scarcity situation has made it impossible to control transport fare.
“There is no way the unions can control transport fare until petrol is available; for now there is no regulation on transport charges until fuel supply normalises.
“I call on Federal Government to hands off fuel business; if government says today that it will have no hand in fuel distribution, you will see availability of fuel and the price will come down,” he said.
The RTEAN boss said the association was set to create about 4.5 million jobs through its nationwide mass transport scheme.
“We are running a nationwide mass transit scheme in which most of the vehicles will be dedicated to the unemployed, disabled and the less privileged in order to support the Federal Government for the benefit of the good people of Nigeria.
“This will help in reducing the hardship in the movement of commuters and boost the economy of Nigeria’s transport system,” Isiwele said.
