There is nothing too small to not be considered when it comes to saving lives especially in the transport sector of every nation. This is a fact that is probably well understood by Mr Nuruddeen Rafindadi, the Managing Director of FERMA, who recently pledged to work with the FRSC on the production of proper road signage. Mrs Maryam Sanusi, the Head of Communications at FERMA, revealed in a recent press statement that such closer partnership with FRSC on road signage will make roads safer for Nigerian motorists and also help reduce accidents.

According to press reports, Mr Rafindadi confirmed this new update when he recently received FRSC delegates at the FERMA headquarters building in Abuja. He also attested to the fact that the production of proper road markings and road signage will really help to reduce accidents in Nigeria when it becomes a reality. Mr Rafindadi also expressed his belief that better collaboration between the FRSC and FERMA will greatly improve Nigeria’s road signage system.
While still speaking about “improved” road signage, Mr Nuruddeen Rafindadi further revealed that he confidently expects high-quality signage products from the FRSC when the agency begins working together with the Corps. He also explained that FERMA will be more focused on procuring high-quality products from FRSC even if they come with higher price tags. Mr Rafindadi stressed that he prefers to procure expensive road signage products from FRSC if they will last for 15 years rather than “cheap” products that will last for only 3 years.
Just as FERMA is currently focused on improving road signage systems to help reduce road crashes in Nigeria, the FRSC is also busy implementing measures to curb car theft and other related crimes.
