A report of the Presidential Committee on the review of outstanding issues from recent constitutional conferences has recommended that the Federal Road Safety Commission be strengthened to continue performing its functions independently.
The committee which was inaugurated by President Goodluck Jonathan on November 17, 2011 deliberated on a number of policy issues which were highlighted in the report of the National Political Reform Conference 2005.
The Committee which referred some of the issues to some relevant ministries, departments and agencies for comments on their levels of implementation, stated that it might not be advisable to add the burden of administering the Road Safety commission to the police.
The committee also upheld the Road Safety Commission's continuous existence and improved funding.
Part of the report reads, "The Federal Road safety Commission should be well-funded and provided with serviceable patrol vehicles, ambulances, and roadside clinics for effective road traffic accident prevention, mitigation and management"
The committee said that its decision arose from an international decision which was adopted by member states of the United Nations.
