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

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.
