Part of the statement from the association reads in part, “The seminar is part of the efforts of Transport and Aviation reporters in Abuja to create avenue for stakeholders to discuss strategies towards repositioning the country’s transportation industry as a catalyst for sustainable economic development.
“Infrastructure challenge has been a major setback in the quest to develop an enduring transport industry in Nigeria especially land and air transport sectors as being canvassed by stakeholders at different fora.
“It is therefore in this regard, that a body of journalists covering the sector has deemed it necessary to engage the relevant stakeholders and industry players in both public and private sector to brainstorm on the way forward.”
