Mustapha said that the enforcement of existing road safety laws must be vigorously pursued and violators severely punished.

He said the country had many road safety laws that should be enforced to increase the level of compliance.

The SGF added that public awareness and road safety campaigns need to be strong and sustained throughout the year and not limited to just the festive seasons.

According to him, awareness and compliance with road safety regulations are important to reduce the frequency of traffic accidents.

“The relevant authorities who have this responsibility must find ways to ensure that the mix of awareness and enforcement is prioritized at all times.

“In this regard, FRSC must ensure that only trained and certified drivers are allowed to drive in Nigeria,” he added.

Mustapha expressed concern that the majority of citizens “view the driver’s license as an identification tool and not for its intended purpose.

“The consequence is that incompetent and unfit people can be certified to drive and this could spell disaster.

“Above all, public information programs aimed at educating road users on safe road use must be vigorously pursued.”

The SGF, who was represented by Corps Marshal Dauda Biu, said Nigeria would continue to develop road safety management capacity and improve road infrastructure.

According to him, injuries, disabilities and deaths resulting from traffic accidents continue to be a public health problem.

“As Nigeria’s economy grows, traffic volume is projected to increase from eight million vehicles in 2013 to 20 million-40 million by 2030.

“With this in mind, the present administration has committed enormous resources to improve road safety management and ensure that the FRSC’s mandate is met.

“That is why the administration has remained determined to ensure that policy formulation and implementation at various levels of government take place in recognition of this growing problem as a public health crisis.

“The Federal Government has also ensured that the proper budget allocation is channeled to road infrastructure, as seen in the massive construction of new roads and the rehabilitation of existing ones nationwide,” he said. .
