AU commends Nigeria’s road safety initiatives

13 July 2015, 10:42Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, has appreciated the Federal Government’s efforts in promoting road safety.

The commendation, which culminated in Oyeyemi praising the resilience of the officers of the organisation, follows the Economic Commission for Africa adjudging Nigeria as one of the best three performers among 23 countries in accomplishing activities of the African Road Safety Action Plan.

This is according to a mid-term review report from the Third African Road Safety Conference organized by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) which recently took place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The Head of Media Relations and Strategy, Bisi Kazeem, added that the Corps Marshal assured his audience at the conference that in the spirit of the occasion, the Corps has chosen not to rest on its oars, but will rather continue to device ways to improve on its achievements and never to perform below the standard of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety Declaration.

Kazeem meanwhile said the report from the conference in Ethiopia stated that 40 percent of member countries are in the process of implementing more road safety management activities.

He listed Nigeria, Ghana, and South Africa as the leading countries with clear prospects of accomplishing the activities of the African Road Safety Action Plan.

Performance of the plan was measured based on road safety management, mobility, vehicles, road users and post-crash response.
