Making the call, yesterday, during a press conference in Lagos at the maiden edition of The Global Transport Policy, Musa said trends and developments in recent times have shown the need for urgent conversation to foster economic growth in the Nigerian transport industry and therefore called for government’s participation on a holistic inter-model transportation system in the country.   

He said: “Every state has potential and resources, we need to tap into it to bring out economical growth and encourage investors to come in. And for this to happen, there must be a continuous conversation; conversation that will be backed up with actions.”

This, is said, will foster economic growth in the transport industry.
