ENUGU – The Managing Director of the Enugu State Transport Company (ENTRACO), Mr Okey Mba, has said that the company engages in regular training of its drivers to avoid accidents.
Mba told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Thursday that the company had not recorded any accident this year.
He said the company engaged the drivers in periodic training by the Federal Road Safety Corps on latest traffic rules.
He said the company ensured that its drivers were law abiding and maintained speed limits while on the highways.
According to him, the company approved a speed limit of 100 kilometres per hour on the highways and less in cities.
The managing director said that as a government agency, the company was expected to show good examples to the public.
“It is their responsibility to keep to the rules and regulations of the government so that it will not look as if the government makes laws and disobeys them.
“So whatever rules the government put in place, especially in the transport sector, we do our best to ensure that those rules are complied with,” he said.
The director said that his administration had embarked on self help approach to revive the company, adding that it was not always advisable to look up to the government for everything.
He also said that the company had procured 12 buses for intercity transportation through its internal efforts.
Mba expressed delight that the company now recorded high patronage from the public because it was more comfortable, reliable and reached its destinations in good time. (NAN)
