The Nyanya temporary bus terminal, which was closed in April 2014 following multiple bomb blasts has been reopened by the Federal Capital Territory authorities three years after the blast.
The FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello, who performed the brief reopening, said the park was reopened after necessary security measures had been put in place, and to ease the difficulty faced by commuters in the last three years.
Bello, who was represented by the Acting Secretary of the Transportation Secretariat Abdulhamid Suleiman said that the vicinity around the bombed terminal was always congested thus, causing heavy gridlocks while commuters boarded on the road, thereby exposing them to danger.
The minister also lauded security agents for keeping vigil at the site since April 2014, said their effort kept the enemy away. He urged them to increase their vigilance as the terminal goes into full operation.
