Former presidential candidate in 2019 and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Mr Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim has called on Local Councils across the country to prioritize the provision of safe shuttle buses that would ease movement of citizens especially in their areas.

Olawepo-Hashim who stated this on Thursday in Abuja while giving out seven cars to members of his staff as well as worship leaders at the Covenant Altar of Worship Ministry, explained that the provision of these buses would ameliorate the sufferings and security concerns that passengers have to deal with on a daily basis.

He added that the local councils should be able to provide such safe and conducive shuttle buses to ease movement.

According to him: “I was moved to give out the vehicles following the harrowing experiences the beneficiaries have had to deal with in the course of using unconducive and unsafe transportation.”

He recounted how one of the beneficiaries, a woman and her child, barely survived after they fell off a commercial motorcycle while coming to worship.

He also noted that passengers and commutters have been subjected to attacks because of the insecure nature of the transport system, especially in the Federal Capital territory, FCT

Olawepo-Hashim equally maintained that the provision of the safe shuttle buses would not just ease movement and commuting, but also ensure some sense of security.

Some of the beneficiaries of the cars include Taiye Godstime Atolagbe; Funke Samuel; Elizabeth Ola; Felix Gabriel; Vivian Metu; Bulus Alika and Abdulrahaman Abdulganiyu.

The elated benefiaciaries were united in their appreciation of the kind gesture and prayed for continued “grace and blessings” on Mr. Olawepo-Hashim.
