 He disclosed this while delivering his opening speech at the
maiden edition of Nigeria Auto Journalists Association Annual Training Workshop
Friday 29th July, at Nero Hotel, Sangotedo, Ajah, Lagos.
” The full involvement of Ford Motor Corporation, Sub-
Sahara Africa in our training programme this year attests to the fact that Ford
is committed to promoting safe driving in not just Africa but worldwide. It may
interest you to know that Ford sent driving experts all the way from South
Africa and Dubai to participate in this year’s training,” adding that, ”other
auto companies should emulate Ford spirit to sponsor subsequent edition.”
According to him, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has over
the years been unrelenting in ensuring safer roads. Saluting the effort of the
Corps, he urged FRSC to do more to reduce the number of road traffic crashes
and deaths on Nigerian roads, stressing that drivers and other road transport
stakeholders must equally play their part in promoting safe driving.
He said:” The need to keep abreast with the latest happenings
in the auto industry as well as improve our knowledge of automotive
terminologies gave birth to the Annual Training Workshop.”
