The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Benin operation office, in collaboration with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), has flagged off its 2021 sensitisation campaign for road users across Benin-Lagos and other critical roads in Edo state.

Flagging off the annual exercise in Benin Friday, NEMA Edo Head of Operations, Mr. Dahiru Yusuf, said the exercise titled, “Safety above all” was aimed at educating and creating awareness for motorists and the general public against harmful practices on the road.

“The sensitization and awareness creation was intended to rally support from other critical stakeholders to support the FRSC in curbing road mishap, loss of lives and property during and after the Yuletide season.”

He said during the Christmas and New Year period, the agency usually carry out the end of the season campaign to let road users know why they should obey traffic rules and regulations and drive safely.

He urged motorists to drive at minimal speed and respect other road users as it is those that are alive that celebrate the season.

On his part, the Edo state sector commander of the FRSC, Henry Benamaisia, applauded NEMA for deploying its assets to support the corps during this period of high vehicular movement.

Represented by FRSC Unit Head of Operations of the Benin-Lagos Toll Gate, Mrs. R.A. Inneh, said the corps would continue to collaborate with the agency for the sake of the passengers and humanity.

He, however, sought the agency’s assistance for equipment in the area of stretchers, body bags and fire extinguishers among others.
