The Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic, commonly known as PolyUnwana, has launched a free transport service for students and staff commuting between the campus and Afikpo. This initiative is sponsored by the Student Union Government's (SUG) Director of Transport, Comr. Samuel Usoro, and Iboh Chibuchi Jonathan, a student in HND1 Mechanical Engineering. The service is designed to improve transportation accessibility, reduce commuting costs, and enhance community engagement.

Earlier today, Comr. Samuel Usoro, SUG Director of Transport, provided four 18-seater buses to transport students from the school hostel to Afikpo, all free of charge. What makes this initiative even more remarkable is that it was funded by Comr. Samuel Usoro himself, reflecting his dedication to supporting his peers and the wider PolyUnwana community.

"Offering free transport is a significant step toward improving the quality of life for our students and staff," said Comr. Samuel Usoro. "It provides greater access to education, employment opportunities, and community events without the financial strain of transportation costs."

Iboh Chibuchi Jonathan, a student sponsor of the initiative, noted the broader impact on the PolyUnwana community. "This free transport service promotes unity and a sense of belonging," he explained. "It's about creating a stronger, more connected campus environment."

The free transport service to Afikpo is expected to continue for the foreseeable future, with plans for expansion depending on demand. This initiative underscores the importance of accessible transportation in academic institutions and its role in fostering a more inclusive and collaborative environment.
