3. Only the dully recognised and approved transport unions in the state are to sell daily tickets to their members and remit to the Government through Abia State Internal Revenue Service in partnership with the global consultants, CSDC.

4. The Governor has also approved the request of the transport unions to review the payable daily revenues as follows:

A. Tricycles (Keke) to pay N150 per day instead of N190.

B. 7-seater mini bus (Oke bekee) reduced from N350 per day to N300.

C. Other buses reduced from N1,100 per day to N600.

D.  Tipper/Light Truck reduced from N2,400 to N1,700 daily.

E. Truck/Lorry/Tanker/Trailer reduced from N2,700 Per day to N2,100.

5. All the daily payments are to be made once a day through the Transport unions and remitted to the government immediately.

6. All commercial vehicles plying within Abia State shall be enumerated, digitally captured and registered for enhancement of security within the state.

7. As soon as the enumeration and registration of tricycles is completed the government will announce the phased extension of operating time for Keke operators in the state.
