By Nneka Nwogwugwu
The Federal Government has inaugurated the National Traffic Radio 107.1 FM, a radio station of the Federal Road Safety Corps.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who inaugurated the station on Tuesday, described the radio as an important and strategic initiative in several respects.
He said, ‘’The service will enable effective dissemination of relevant information on road safety and the provision of up-to-date information on road conditions, as well as traffic status and security to the public.”
He added that the radio station will also be useful in reaching far flung areas for teaching and dissemination of public health advisories and general information to Nigerians.
Osinbajo then featured during the radio station’s traffic report programme where he gave live traffic situation report across the country particularly from areas in and around the FCT, Jos and Lagos.
The inauguration was done shortly after the vice president unveiled the Made-in-Nigeria fair featuring the exhibition of the first electric car assembled in Nigeria, among other locally manufactured products.
