FRSC Certifies 15 Transport Companies in Enugu
The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) on Thursday issued certificates to 15 transport companies in Enugu for meeting the safety standards set by the commission.
The Sector Commander, Mr Edward Zamber, who issued the certificates to representatives of the companies, congratulated them for meeting up with the safety standards.
Zamber told the transport operators not to relent in ensuring that they complied with set rules, to save lives of their drivers and passengers.
According to him, the issuance of the certificates is a call to do more for the transporters to save lives on Nigerian roads.
He said that he was excited that more operators were meeting the minimum safety requirements for transport operators.
Zamber listed the responsibilities of the FRSC to include monitoring, certifying, registering and enforcing compliance with the Highway Code.
He called on transporters to discourage the sale of alcohol in motor parks for the safety of drivers and their passengers.
In a welcome address, Mrs Nwafor Obasi, the Assistant Corps Commander, said that only three transport companies were certified in 2016 in Enugu State.
She said that 15 companies were however, certified in 2017 out of 35 transport companies in the state.
Obasi described the development as encouraging, advising more transport operators to embrace safety measures put in place by the commission. (NAN)
