‘Road accidents claimed lives of many corps members’

Olaleye Aluko, Abuja

the National Youth Service Corps has expressed concern over the increasing rate of road accidents involving corps members, adding that such accidents accounted for most of the deaths recorded among the corps members.

The NYSC Director-General, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim, stated this during a meeting with transport operators, the management of the Federal Road Safety Corps, the National Union of Road Transport Workers, the Road Transport Employers' Association of Nigeria and the National Association of Road Transport Owners, among others in Abuja.

Ibrahim said, "We appeal to the FRSC and the transport unions to help in sensitising commercial drivers to imbibe the safety culture, especially when they have corps members on board their vehicles.

"The management is seriously disturbed by the rate of road traffic accidents involving corps members. Accidents accounted for most of the deaths recorded among the corps members.

"The loss of any corps member is always painful to us. The wish of every parent who invested in the education of their children is to have them graduate and become successful so that they can reap their investments.
