This agenda also focuses on the delivery of concrete commitments in areas where our company can directly make impact through its operations,” he said.

Mr. Ekanem further revealed that the 10th edition of the campaign would be broader in scope and operations by involving a wider audience who would benefit from the initiative. “For the 10th Don’t Drink and Drive Campaign, we plan to extend our reach through the hosting of mega rallies in Abuja, Lagos and Enugu that would involve a wider audience including the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria and Tanker Drivers. Other targeted audience groups include Luxury Bus Drivers, ‘Keke’ and ‘Okada’ riders and non-governmental organizations with focus on the transport sector,” Ekanem stated.

He also used the occasion to reveal the success of the initiative in previous editions and appreciated the FRSC for the sustained partnership and its continued commitment to the promotion of road safety in Nigeria.
