Ibrahim Sannoh Executive Director, SLRSA
The Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority (SLRSA) has called on its Nigerian counterpart to assist it in strengthening and building its road management authority.
The Executive Director of SLRSA, Ibrahim Sannoh, who made the call when he led a fact-finding mission to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Abuja on Wednesday, said assistance from FRSC would make road administration in Sierra Leone more effective.
Mr Sannoh said it was for the same reason decided to seek timely intervention, capacity building, and logistic support from its Nigerian counterpart.
He said with support from FRSC, his country’s road management authority would be able to deliver on its mandate effectively.
The Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority is the lead Road Safety Management Agency in Sierra Leone.
It has the responsibility to regulate and develop the Sierra Leonean road transport sector based on an Act of Parliament in 1996 setting it up.
The executive director said that his team’s mission was also to seek collaboration with FRSC in the area of capacity building ahead of planned reforms anchored around the commencement of the production of biometric driver’s licenses.
According to him, SLRSA is also seeking to work closely with FRSC in the area of generation of National Identification Number (NIN) from his country’s National Civil Registration Authority (NCRA).
