FRSC to partner Rwanda on road safety

06 August 2014, 13:49Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) is considering a partnership with Rwanda to entrench safer road use within the region.

Bisi Kazeem, Deputy Corps Public Education Officer, said the development was reached during an advocacy visit by the Out-going Rwanda High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador Joseph Habineza, to the Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Boboye Oyeyemi, in FRSC headquarters Abuja.

Kazeem implored the Rwandan government to key into this initiative which the official said would go a long way to rev up road safety consciousness in the African region, adding that the FRSC Academy could also assist in training Rwandan traffic officers on global best practices for road safety management.

Habineza commended FRSC for attaining greater heights in information technology deployment which has impacted positively on the driving culture of motorists in Nigeria, adding that efforts will be made towards replicating the FRSC model of road safety management in Rwanda.

He also pledged to work towards a visit by a dedicated team from Rwanda to Nigeria to interface with the FRSC on the modalities towards achieving this engagement plan.
Kazeem said FRSC had taken giant strides in road safety management and traffic administration through massive investment on people, processes and technology, which had positively inspired and motivated other countries in West Africa resulting in the World Bank declaring FRSC as the best-led agency on road safety in Africa in 2012.

FRSC has deployed agencies to Sierra Leone as part of efforts towards assisting the country to replicate the FRSC model of lead agency for road safety management.

Other countries such as Ghana, Tanzania and Liberia have taken similar steps.
