Road workers institute empower over 200 graduates trainee drivers in lagos.
Lagos, March 21, 2019 The Institute of Road Transport Workers (IRTW) on Thursday empowered 200 trainee driver graduates in Lagos.
The Chairman of the institute, Mr AbdulRahman Adeyemi, made this known during the biometrics capturing of the beneficiaries.
Adeyemi said that the Micro-Bus Scheme (MES) was a package of social-benefit incentives for registered trainees of institute.
He added that while training was the core mission of IRTW, MES was only a tactical instrument of instigating voluntary submission to
knowledge acquisition by road transport operators in Nigeria.
He said that the IRTW was incorporated as a platform of human capacity in the development of the road transport sector through orientation, academic and professional training.
He added that owing to the degeneration of the road transport sub sector, the institute developed a society-based approach and adopted same through Public-Private Partnership scheme.
He said it was a transitional scheme by which road transporters could acquire elevation into higher pedestals.
Mr Rasheed Olokode, the Director of IRTW, said that buses would be given to beneficiaries of the training at the rate of N1.2 million. Olokode said that the beneficiaries would pay N2,500 daily for 18 months.
He noted that the money covered the bus, fees and all other costs accrued. He said that the selection was borderless and cut across all strata of road workers.
The target of the institute, he said, was to institutionalise credible data base for road transport operators in Nigeria and elevation of the informal transport workers.
A beneficiary, Mr Bolade Babajide, who responded on behalf of others, said they had learnt a lot from the training.
Babajide said that his hope of making a living had been raised because he had no means of getting a bus.
He appealed to other beneficiaries not to default in the daily repayment “because the institute has really helped us.”
