By Adedapo Adesanya The Rivers State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has promised to collaborate with \u2018Save a Life Foundation\u2019 towards ensuring mental and overall wellbeing for drivers to curtail road accidents related deaths. At a health enlightenment lecture organised by the foundation for members of staff of the command on Sunday in Port Harcourt, the Sector Commander, Mr Salisu Galadunchi, applauded the group for its contributions toward promoting good health, adding that the message of health would be appropriately channelled to appropriate authorities. He added that the message on health as propagated by the foundation was in accordance with the Corps\u2019 2020 strategic goal initiatives. He said that part of the 2020 initiative was to minimise the risk of death in road traffic-related occurrences. \u201cThis health enlightenment programme is clearly in line with guiding policy for the Corps Marshals where staff of 40 years and above are directed to undergo compulsory medical checks. \u201cI urge us all to give more attention to matters of our health by keying into the mission and vision of the \u2018Save a life Foundation,\u201d he said. Mr Galadunchi also advised officers and men of the command to engage in regular medical checks to enhance a healthy lifestyle. In his lecture, Mr Richard Okoye, CEO\/President of the foundation, revealed that most road accidents and related deaths were preventable as they were usually caused by reckless driving and use of intoxicant by drivers. \u201cThe World Health Organization (WHO) has defined health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. \u201cBased on WHO premises, we are, therefore, seeking for a collaboration with the FRSC to enhance testing and certification for drivers before allowing them to drive on Nigerian roads. \u201cThis measure would indeed boost safety on our roads,\u201d Mr Okoye said.
