Idris Wada Pleads To Train Drivers In His Convoy

According to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) officials, Kogi state Governor Idris Wada has pleaded with them to commence training the drivers in his convoy.
It will be recalled that the latest road accident involving his convoy happened this Tuesday, November 12, 2013, as the former President of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Festus Iyayi, was killed.
The Corps Marshal and chief Executive of FRSC, Mr. Osita Chidoka, disclosed this information while delivering a speech before reporters, marking the 2013 Africa Road Safety and World Day.
He blamed the frequent road crashes involving the governor’s convoy on unqualified drivers.
Chidoka denied reports which blamed the governor’s convoy for the cause of the accident which terminated the life of of Iyayi, noting that the corps had commenced investigation into the fatal crash.
The results will be made public, the official promised.
He regretted the non-participation of Kogi convoy drivers in its training scheme, a situation he attributed to the ugly trend which had also occurred in the convoys of the Deputy Governor, Yomi Awoniyi, and the Speaker of the State House of Assembly in recent times.
He said the commission had embarked on training convoy drivers, so that they could be better drivers.
"Of the 700 convoy drivers we trained in the last two years, from that day till date, none of them have been involved in any road crash. The only crash we have seen so far from convoys are from people that have not attended our training," Mr. Chidoka said.
