According to a joint statement signed by Nonso Ubajaka, national president, and Frank Nneji, honorary secretary, member companies were mobilised towards ensuring that more passengers take advantage of the federal government’s ticket rebate to travel within the stipulated period.

The association also said it mobilised some state-owned transit companies such as Gombe State Mass Transit and Bornu State Mass Transit and others to join in the project for the return leg of the seasonal travels.
