Nigeria (Blank NEWS Online) –
Delta state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah has assured the Federal Road Safety Commission of the support of the State government towards the actualisation of road safety ethics on our roads.
He gave this assurance while hosting a delegation led by the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Corps Commander Rindom Kumven, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
Mr. Ukah reiterated the State Government’s commitment to the safety of lives on our roads, which informed the establishment of the Delta State Traffic Management Authority (DESTMA), specifically to compliment the efforts of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), especially within the town, so as to leave them free to concentrate on the highways.
The Information Commissioner stated that the Ministry will work in collaboration with the Federal Road Safety Corps to sensitise Deltans on the programme of the Corps through its electronic and print media, and called on the Corps to draw up enlightenment programmes which could be supported by stakeholders on Road Safety Project to educate Deltans on Road Safety culture.
Earlier, the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Commander Rindam Kumven, explained that the delegation were in the office of the Honourable Commissioner to appeal for support of the Ministry in the area of publicising and sensitising the general public on the need to inculcate Road Safety habits, especially regarding over speeding, over loading, use of old and expired tyres and non adherence to road signs.
He also hinted that the Corps was planning to set up a motorised patrol unit along the Asaba-Benin express way which hopefully would help to curtail the increased motor accidents occurring along that road.
