Mr Anthony Ogunleye, Chief Press Secretary to the minister in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said Bello made the pledge when he received a delegation from the FRSC, led by the new Zone 7 Area Commander, Assistant Corp Marshal, Jonas Agwu.
The minister noted that the Airport Road was the gateway into the City and should at all times reflect orderliness.
The minister stressed the need for the corps to deploy more men and equipment to ensure enforcement of road safety laws on the roads.
“Particular attention should be placed on the traffic congestion that occurs regularly at the Lugbe axis along the Airport Road, especially in the evenings, where unauthorised trading takes place usually under the pedestrian bridges,” he said.
The minister also emphasised the need for enforcement of traffic and road safety laws, adding that enforcement was key to the success of FRSC operations.
Earlier, Agwu commended the minister for his openness and support for the FRSC, which had contributed to the successes achieved by the corps in the nation’s capital.
He also appreciated the good working relationship among the various relevant agencies in the FCT involved in management of traffic and curbing insecurity in the territory.
He said that the creation of more designated bus stops and deployment of more high capacity buses would further aid traffic flow in the city.
