Adamawa State government has approved the procurement of 10 buses at the rate of N160 million each. According to a statement released by the state government after its State Executive meeting which was held yesterday, the 10 buses will be purchased from local manufacturer, Innoson Motors, and it will cost the state a whooping sum of N1.6 billion. The state EXCO meeting was presided over by the Deputy Governor, Professor Kaletapwa George Farauta, at the Government House in Yola. Recall that the Governor of the State, Ahmadu Umar u Fintiri was recently reported to have proceeded on vacation abroad.

The decision taken by the Adamawa State government was one of the many steps being taken by the government to cushion the effects of the subsidy removal on the residents of the state.

The Adamawa State Executive Council has approved over N1 billion for the procurement of ten luxurious buses. This decision was made due to the rising cost of transportation as a result of the removal of fuel subsidies.

"The aim of procuring these buses is to lessen the impact of the increased transportation costs on the general population. The government intends to make public transport more affordable for the general public," the Deputy Governor of the State, Prof. Farauta stated.

Furthermore, the government has also approved the procurement of metric tons of grains to be sold to residents at a subsidized rate. This initiative is part of the government's effort to provide relief to the people while ensuring that essential commodities remain accessible.

The State Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Hon. Nedo Kufulto, stated that the people should be patient as the government works tirelessly to distribute relief measures to every household across the State.

The State Commissioner of Transport and Development, Hon. Musa Mohammed Kallamu, has provided details on the recent approval of ten 58-seater luxurious buses.

He has revealed that these ten buses are the first phase of the initial larger plan to introduce more such buses into the State's transport network. This revelation demonstrates the Government’s commitment to improving public transport services and the overall travel experience for people.

Hon. Kallamu has assured the public that additional buses are in the pipeline and will be introduced gradually. This action is consistent with the government's goal of addressing transport challenges, providing better options for commuters, and contributing to the State's overall growth and development.
