The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) Mr. Boboye Oyeyemi has urged collaboration with the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) to address the issue of night driving.

Oyeyemi stated this at the occasion of the 9th quadrennial delegate conference of the NURTW in Abuja yesterday.

“The NURTW should as a matter of urgency collaborate with the FRSC by participating in a training programme, as most drivers who drive at night don’t see clearly and that is why most these crashes are fatal at night, as we need to address it,” he said, adding that 60 percent of road crashes mostly occurred at night.

He urged the union to also liaise with the corps on the need to organize a training programme for the union drivers.

He also urged the union to ensure motorists embrace the speed limiter devices, saying the issue of the speed limiter was implemented by President Muhammadu Buhari, immediately he assumed office in 2015.

Also speaking, the outgoing national president of the NURTW, Alhaji Najeem Yasin, said since the inception of the union 41 years ago, it has never had a peaceful transition like the present one.

He said he was delighted for the achievement he has recorded during his eight years tenure and charged the incoming executives to live up to expectations by sustaining the peaceful coexistence among the members of the union across the country.
