The Accident Investigation Bureau, Nigeria (AIB-N) has agreed to provide technical and training support to Ghana.  

This followed the visit by the Accident Investigation Bureau of Ghana to AIB-Nigeria to seek technical assistance and manpower development, among others.

The commissioner of AIB-Ghana, Akwesi Prempeh, who led a four-man team, said the objective of the visit was to acquire knowledge on key policies, regulations, procedures and the structure of the Nigerian bureau.

“Apart from that, we are looking for how to finance our bureau because it is a new establishment,” he said.

On his part, the commissioner of AIB-Nigeria, Akin Olateru, said the team from Ghana were in Nigeria on a fact-finding mission.

He said, “AIB-Ghana is new and they want to learn from Nigeria. They want to learn from our mistakes and from the things we have done very well.

“They have gone through some of our documentations as well, such as our regulation and others. This is an attestation to the fact that we are doing something right in AIB-Nigeria.  

“This is not the first country to call on us for assistance. We have had such calls from the Republic of Benin, which has ceded all their investigations to AIB-Nigeria.”

He explained that Nigeria’s safety laboratory would be used by the neighbouring country till it could fund one.
