A non-governmental organisation, Brodas Across Nigeria, has expressed its commitment to working with relevant government parastatals to reduce road accidents and fatalities in states.

This, it said, would enhance proactive measures  to make Nigerian roads safer.

Chairman Brodas Across Nigeria (Northern States), Mr. Ikem Agboeze, who made this known yesterday while handing over  traffic warden control stand to the Byazhin Police Station, Kubwa, Abuja, said appropriate intervention can go a long way in preventing accidents and deaths.

He said the initiative of donating traffic warden control stand to the Nigerian Police in different states across the country was necessitated by the number of accidents witnessed on Nigerian roads due to the absence of such facilities.

Agboeze, who noted that there is a high tendency of accidents in the area where the facility was donated in Abuja, said the aim also is to provide shelter for the policemen on duty.

He said: “There is a high tendency of accidents in this area and it is very necessary there should be a traffic stand at least providing shelter for the policemen on duty.

“Our organisation has been partnering with different government parastatals in things like this; our chapter in Port Harcourt, River State, is doing something like this with the army to help the widows who lost their husbands while combating terrorism.”

As the Northern chapter, he said, “We have provided seven of this in six states. We did one in Plateau, Benue, Nasarawa, Bauchi, Kaduna and the Federal Capital Territory.

The PRO of the organisation, Mr Emmanuel Oko, noted that the aim of providing the traffic facility is to enable the police officers on duty carry out their duties effectively.
