Kumapayi lauded the reporters for their dedication in disseminating safety information, stating that the information led to the decrease in road accidents in the state.
“The traffic environment has greatly improved in Anambra. I can say to you that from our records, traffic crashes have reduced by about 30 per cent in the last six months compared to the same period in previous year.
“I want to say that the media contributed to this reduction and want to ask you to continue to support us because road safety is a shared responsibility,” he said.
The Chairman of Nigeria Union of Journalists, Anambra Council, Emmanuel Ifesinachi, expressed appreciation for the honour accorded to the journalists.
He said the corps should rest assured of the NUJ’s full cooperation in the area of sensitisation of the public about policies and programmes.
