Only properly registered road transporters would be considered for the palliative.

Saraki said this when the National President, National Commercial Tricycle and Motorcycle Owners and Riders Association (NACTOMORAS), Alhaji Muhammed Sani Hassan, led its members to visit her in Abuja.

She, however, tasked the executive council to ensure its members were duly registered as only properly registered road transporters would be considered for the palliative.

Saraki appreciated the association for the visit and called for synergy among transport stakeholders to drive the sector.

She assured the delegation of the Federal Government's commitment to assist transport associations, unions and instill sanity in the sector through a regulatory framework.

Saraki said that the coronavirus pandemic had necessitated the need for contact tracing of passengers as normalcy was gradually being restored in the country.

According to Saraki, the ministry is aware of the role of tricycle and okada operators play in the transport sector.

The National President of NACTOMORAS in his remark implored the minister to give the transport operators and owners a special consideration in the disbursement of the intervention fund.

Sani said that members of the association were the most affected by the pandemic.

He said the pandemic stripped members of their little savings due to the stay-at-home order of the Federal Government to contain the spread of the virus.
