SDGs AND NIGERIA ROAD SAFETY STRATEGY (2021 – 2030): PROPOSAL ON TRAIN – THE – TRAINERS PROGRAMME FOR EDUCATION MDAs AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS TO ENHANCE MORAL VALUES, ROAD SAFETY EDUCATION AND SECURITY IN SCHOOLS IN THE STATE,
Several reports revealed that Children, Students, Lecturers and Teachers are being killed daily on the roads and in other preventable circumstances in Nigeria as in other Countries globally. There have been cases of Security lapses (resulting to the kidnapping of School Teachers and Children, Armed Robbery, Thefts and allied challenges in and around Schools in Nigeria).
There were other cases of safety lapses which led to school building collapse, fire incidents, and several other occupational hazards in Schools.
To effectively overcome and prevent the challenges of Road Safety, Drug Abuse, Security and Criminal activities in and out of Schools as they affect Children, Students, Teachers and School facilities, it is expedient for all the Stakeholders (Government, Parents, Teachers and Pupils/Students) to know and believe that the prevention of the hazards is a shared responsibility and be committed to taking and promoting appropriate reactive and proactive steps to alleviate and ultimately eliminate the Drug Abuse, Crime, Road Safety, Security and allied problems in the Schools.
It is in view of the above-mentioned facts that we packaged a PROFESSIONAL TRAIN-THE-TRAINERS PROGRAMME ON “ROAD SAFETY, SECURITY, DRUG ABUSE, AND MORAL EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS”. Consequent upon the fact that prevention education still remains the best antidote coupled with the fact that there is a low level of Road Safety and Security Education in many Schools in Nigeria while several Schools have no form of structured Road Safety and Security Education for Children, there is an urgent need to institutionalize Road Safety and Security Education for all categories and ages of School Children to enhance their knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours for safety and security in and out of Schools.
Our Organization, Professional Driving and Safety Academy has therefore taken up the responsibility to effectively complement the efforts of the Federal and State Government, Federal Road Safety Commission, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Nigeria Police, and other Organisations to entrench and promote Security, Road Safety and Drug Education in Schools for the safety of the children who are the future Leaders of Nigeria. This training will also contribute to the accomplishment of the Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UN Decade of Action Road Safety and Injury Prevention (UNDARSIP), Nigeria Road Safety Strategy and the Safe Schools project.
The resolutions of the National Council on Transportation (Dec. 8th 2022) and the Nigeria Road Safety Strategy (2021 – 2030) affirmed the urgent need for Road Safety Education, Drug Abuse Education and Security Education in Schools.
Consequent upon the above-mentioned facts, our Organization in collaboration with relevant Organizations has professionally packaged a Train-The-Trainers programme to more effectively address the challenges of Road Accidents as they affect School Children, Drug Abuse, Crimes (social vices), kidnapping and other security and safety problems within and outside the school environments as well as proffer workable and lasting solutions with effective Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Re-engineering mechanisms.
