The Delta business community, and Nigeria’s transport sector, at the weekend erupted with excitement at the commissioning of the newly acquired fleet by Delta Line, a recently privatised interstate passenger transport company.
The event, which held at the corporate head office of the company, in Asaba, had in attendance Deltans and Nigerians from across the country.
The audience expressed absolute joy at the great improvements taking place in Delta Line which was practically moribund before the Ifeanyi Okowa administration struck a deal to privatise the company under a PPP arrangement between the Delta State Government and GTDC, a transport management company.
In his welcome address, the General Manager of the company, Mr Samson Oseamen traced the multiple successes recorded by the new Management to the commitment, resilience and unwavering support of the government.
These, he said, have allowed the company to focus on its core objective of re-positioning Delta Line as the pride of the south and a world class transport platform.
In addition to a modern fleet, Delta Line plans to unveil, in the coming weeks, new terminals, technology-powered operations and outstanding customer experience as the management works hard at repositioning the company for competitiveness.
According to Oseamen, the newly commissioned fleet of Jet Movers is the first set of 120 vehicles to be integrated into the company’s operations in 2019. With individual audio-visual display systems fitted on every seat, travellers are promised a taste of pure luxury while aboard the Jet Mover.
He added that the company was committed to value and job creation.
The State government, on its part, restated that the relaunch of Delta Line, shows its unwavering commitment to advancing the interests and progress of Nigerians and Deltans, in particular.
