Lagos, Nigeria – The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and the Lagos State Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) are working together to solve the problem of heavy-duty truck accidents in the area. The decision was made during a meeting between NPA Managing Director/Chief Executive Alhaji Mohammed Bello Kolo and Lagos State Sector Commander of the FRSC, Corps Commander Olusegun Ogungbemide.
Both groups agreed to put into action the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that had already been signed between NPA and FRSC, especially when it came to improving the skills and efficiency of truck drivers. Before leaving port terminals, FRSC personnel will work with the NPA to ensure that trucks meet minimum safety standards and are properly secured.
The two organizations will also have representatives to monitor the implementation of the MoU. NPA will support the training programs for truck drivers and work with the Lagos State Government to secure a holding bay for impounded trucks.
Lagos State Sector Commander Olusegun Ogungbemide expressed his commitment to involving stakeholders in addressing the issue of heavy-duty truck crashes and expressed optimism that the partnership with NPA will make a significant impact.
The initiative supports the Federal Government’s policy on ease of doing business and aims to improve road safety for all.
