Over the time the much towering and leading roles played by this sector is gradually being eroded due to the lacklustre attitude of the owners who surrendered the control of the daily running of their investments to their drivers whom in most cases assumed power of attorney on the business hence the pitiable condition most of the investors now found themselves”, he noted.However, he vowed that “NARTO as the father of all the transport operators in the country is determined to reactivate this important sector with the cooperation of every one of us both the investors, officers and members of the association to achieve the lost glory of the sector”.
