Foundation assures to support FRSC


Foundation assures to support FRSC. The Ford Foundation’s Office of West Africa announced that it will offer financing to the Federal Road Safety Commission to help its paramedics and operational staff execute quick and effective accident rescue operations over the holiday season.

This was revealed by the foundation’s Regional Director for West Africa, Dr. ChiChi Aniagolu, at the start of the capacity building program for FRSC staff in a statement dated Friday, November 10, 2023 but issued on Tuesday in Abuja.

According to Aniagbolu, the foundation is ready to help the commission in its preparedness and responsiveness to the very high accident rate on Nigerian roads.

She hoped that all FRSC officers participating in the training would be equipped with enough skills to effectively carry out their duties.

“I am personally delighted that we can support the FRSC’s initiative because, despite the harassment we citizens can sometimes face from FRSC personnel on the road, I am so proud of the FRSC’s work.” “We thank you for your service and commitments, as well as the risk and sacrifice you have made over the last three decades to prevent and eradicate traffic accidents, assist accident victims, and create a safe motoring environment in Nigeria,” she said.

Aniagolu further noted that the FRSC is not only saving lives, but also an essential link to the development of Nigeria because the safe movement of goods, services, and human mobility contributes to economic growth and development.


In addition to Abuja, training will be held in Kano, Ibadan, and Enugu for FRSC personnel in those cities.

The Ford Foundation is a philanthropic organization that works to enhance social justice by tackling the numerous causes of inequality.
