"I really don’t think we have that much of a traffic problem to warrant this agency. it’s just going to be more cost on the government. what’s their role anyway, and how are they going to work side by side with the FRSC?"
Ameen ♠️, @moh_mean, said:
"They're not a new agency and they've been working for about 2 years in conjunction the VIO. They generate revenue for the state and are not just an avenue to spend money. Their salaries last I hecked was around 25k monthly and the staff strength isn't up to 1k."
Chiroma Ridhwan, @chiroma_jnr, said:
"This is needless, Minna doesn't have that much traffic problem. The VIO and FRSC are enough for the state please."
Mubarak abubakar, @mubarak37137751, said:
"I don't think we do really need this for now. Main priority should be on improving the security of the state. Organize well equip CJTF in every local government of the state. That would have been better. My take."
Adams Anas Danlami said on Facebook:
"Good news. VIO must go back to office."

"I guess this is the only thing to show after eight years. Too bad!!!!"
