Poverty Alleviation Department

The Pacesetter Tricycles Scheme is designed as an empowerment to alleviate the sufferings of the citizens in the transport sector of the economy. The scheme reduces motorcycle accidents on our roads thus, it is also a means of providing decent employment.
Productivity is lost when people wait endlessly at bus stop for means of transportation while the economy is enhanced by movements of human beings, goods and services hence, the scheme provides effective transportation system for the citizens of the State.
The scheme also controls the unlimited movement of motorcycles in the city which constitute environmental problems of noise and air pollution with the resultant effect of climate change.
