New FRSC board sets safety targets

24 September 2013, 10:30Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Federal Government Secretary, Senator Anyim Anyim, has charged the newly appointed board members of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) to attain the organisation’s aim to achieve the Accra Declaration target of having road crash fatalities locally in 2015.

“The FRSC has taken very bold initiatives and recorded outstanding success in reducing road traffic crashes in the country. The Commission is poised to meeting the Accra Declaration of reducing road crash fatalities by 50 percent by 2015 while pursuing the UN decade of action on road safety by 2020. I therefore urge you (board members) to put in your best efforts to help in achieving these objectives,” Anyim said in Abuja.

“Your (board members’) appointment into the board of the FRSC, which is a very important agency of government, attests to government’s recognition of your individual accomplishments and contributions to the development of our dear country in your respective professions and areas of service.”

Responding on behalf of the board members, the Chairman, Felix Chukwu thanked President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration for the appointment.

“These privileged appointments, honorable and esteemed as they may be, come with extreme responsibilities. It is our vowed determination to support, drive and give unalloyed loyalty to the tenets and vision of the transformation agenda of the President especially with regard to safety and comfort of lives and property on our roads.”

Chukwu added, “Every Nigerian life was endowed with immense potentials that could greatly contribute to our national development hence every measure would be put in place to make sure that no life is lost or maimed on our roads.”
