Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai on Wednesday said arrangement is in top gear to ensure that in the next 12 months all fuel Tankers would vacate Kaduna highways.

The governor disclosed this while receiving National Leaders of Petroleum Tanker Drivers Association on courtesy call at the government house.

According to him, “Parking tanker vehicles along Marabar Jos along Kaduna - Zaria Expressway  and Tafa along Kaduna - Abuja Express will not be acceptable by my administration.”

He said many lives were lost as a result of such illegal parking of tankers by the roadside.

“We must find a solution to this problem of tankers being parked by roadside, most especially along Tafa, Marabar Jos, Ungwan Muazu and Pambegua. We are aware of accidents caused by these vehicles which led to so many lives been lost.

“I lost a brother in law about 20 years ago because of this and now that we have opportunity to correct this we must find a solution to it.  We are not blaming anybody but we must look for a solution to end this.

“In the next 12 months we will make sure no tanker driver parks by highway within Kaduna state. We will partner with your association to find a lasting solution to it,” he said.

El-Rufai also charged the National Leaders to come up with a solution on ways to clear the highways so as to save lives of innocent motorists in the state.

Earlier, PTD National chairman, Salman Akande Oladiri, had expressed readiness to partner and cooperate with the governor to bring a lasting solution to the problem.

According to him, they came to Kaduna to rejoice with El-Rufai over his victory at the last election.

He said they will also pay similar visits to Sokoto and Plateau states.

Comrade Oladiri also urged El-Rufai to intervene in the leadership crisis that existed in the state chapter of the PTD.
