Vivo Energy Ghana has been recognized by the Greater Accra Regional Office of the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) for its tremendous support towards the improvement of road safety in the region.

Presenting the certificate, the Greater Accra Regional Manager of the National Road Safety Commission, Mrs. Catherine Hamilton, said Vivo Energy Ghana has been a great partner in collaborating with the commission to help improve road safety in the region.
Mrs. Hamilton said “the National Road Safety Commission is very appreciative of the commitment of Vivo Energy Ghana and we look forward to more collaboration on other programmes to educate people on the importance of road safety”.

Meanwhile, Vivo Energy Ghana has also sponsored the 2015 Greater Accra Regional Road Safety Awards to reward deserving transport unions who have distinguished themselves in the areas of driver and vehicle management, trip logging, customer and passenger satisfaction, hazard management, general administration and welfare of members – all aimed at reducing accidents on our roads.

The sponsorship package included road safety educational materials and fuel for the successful organisation.

On his part, the Managing Director of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mr. Ebenezer Faulkner said road safety remains a major challenge in Ghana and the sponsorship of the road safety awards will further motivate transport operators to make good use of best safety practices.

Mr. Faulkner mentioned some of the road safety programmes organised in partnership with the NRSC and other road safety NGOs, as outdoor and indoor lessons for over 6000 pupils from the Greater Accra region, the construction of speed bumps, a health screening exercise for drivers from the Achimota bus terminal and the provision of lollipop stands in various schools in Accra, Tema, Takoradi and Tarkwa.
