- Sambo, Adelusi-Adeluyi to attend 2022 CIOTA Summit
The Chartered Institute of Transport Administration (CIOTA) Nigeria is set to organize its 4th Annual National Transport Summit which commences from November 29th to December 1st, 2022.
CIOTA Nigeria, headed by the President and Chairman of Governing Council, Dr. Bashir Jamoh, has announced that the event would take place at Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja by 10:00am daily.
While the theme of the summit is “Transport Safety and Security Administration in Nigeria,” the Chairman of MTN Foundation, Prince Julius Adelusi-Adeluyi will Chair the Summit with the Minster of Transportation, Alhaji Muazu Jaji Sambo is the Special Guest of Honour.
According to the National Publicity Secretary of CIOTA, Mrs. Chizoba Anyika, the theme for this year’s summit is apt as it will discuss safety and security in all modes of transportation and the value of life for the evaluation of safety and security.
Mrs. Anyika emphasized that the Institute in collaboration with Sectoral Agencies and Departments have selected an array speakers and discussants to brainstorm on the plethora of security issues within the modes.
She recalled that the Institute is currently in collaboration with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), jointly undertaking campaigns in most Lagos motor parks to educate drivers on safety related matters ranging from putting away rickety vehicles, worn out tyres, drunkenness or sleeping behind wheels and other anathema to decency in road usage.
Her words: “The Institute is committed to carrying out advocacy, education and training to ensure best practices in the transportation sector. The menace caused by drivers of articulated vehicles on Nigerian roads has resurfaced with the presence trucks parking indiscriminately on the Lagos Apapa axis.”
“However, it is not only the manner these articulated vehicles are parked on the road that poses a menace, the manner at which they are driven is also a major challenge. The concern of the Institute again is on the safety aspect of fuel-laden tankers. We can continue to partner with sectoral organizations and Departments to look at road, rail infrastructure development and maintenance, abduction, kidnapping, etc.”
