Daily Trust - - ASO CHRONICLE - By Taiwo Adeniyi

The Nyanya Ter­mi­nal which had re­main closed since it was at­tacked by Boko Haram in­sur­gents in April 2014 will be re­opened soon.

Al­haji Isi­aka Ba­banagode, op­er­a­tor of the Nyanya Bus Ter­mi­nal, has said plans are un­der­way to re­open the park.

The FCT Min­is­ter, Muham­mad Musa Bello, had or­dered that the ter­mi­nal be re­opened when he was at the park on July 19. He also di­rected that im­me­di­ate re­pairs and ad­e­quate se­cu­rity mea­sures be put in place for the com­mence­ment of op­er­a­tions there.

Ba­banagode said the min­is­ter di­rected the man­age­ment of the ter­mi­nal to put in place stan­dard se­cu­rity mea­sures in­clud­ing the con­struc­tion of perime­ter fenc­ing, closed cir­cuit tele­vi­sion (CCTV) cam­eras and en­sur­ing free flow of traf­fic along the Abu­jaK­effi high­way.

“We are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing 100 per­cent se­cu­rity for all com­muters in and around the ter­mi­nals and en­sur­ing free traf­fic along the road,” Ba­banagode said.

He also ex­pressed his will­ing­ness to work with all se­cu­rity agen­cies in the area as well as tra­di­tional rulers to main­tain the peace in Nyanya and its en­vi­rons.

Ba­banagode as­sured com­muters of first class ter­mi­nal ser­vices as ren­o­va­tion of the place was in full swing ahead of the for­mal re­open­ing to the gen­eral pub­lic.
