NITT trains 2,107 Kaduna road marshals on traffic management


The Nigerian Institute of Transport Technology (NITT), Zaria, has trained 2,107 marshals of Kaduna State Road Traffic Law Enforcement Agency (KASTELEA) on road traffic management.

The course, planned to run for 10 days in batches had senior management and junior cadres staff of the agency as participants.

Flagging off the training in Kaduna, the Director General of the Institute, Dr. Bayero Salih Farah, said he was happy that the Kaduna state government was leading the way in identifying with NITT services.

 “This has taken a long time coming. Let me, therefore, use this time to call on other transport and logistics companies in the state to turn to us to meet their transport training needs,” he said.

Dr. Farah, represented by the Registrar of the Institute, Mallam Bello Suleimam, described the development as a rare feat, considering that the institute had been trying to penetrate the transport and logistics market in the state for decades with little or no response.

He specifically thanked Governor Nasir El-Rufai for the development and assured that NITT would deploy most of its finest resource persons to man the delivery of the course.

In her remarks, the state’s commissioner in the  Ministry of Public Works and Construction, Hajiya Balaraba Aliu-Inuwa, thanked Governor El-Rufai for giving her ministry the necessary support needed to ensure that the corp has everything it needs to function at exemplary levels.

She also appreciated the management of the institute, noting that “this beautiful collaboration that has worked out so well” would ultimately inculcate in KASTLEA staff the values they needed to enable them serve Kaduna state better.

“This gathering has enabled me to meet the entire senior cadre staff of KASTLEA for the first time,” he added.

Hajiya Aliu-Inuwa also stated the imperative of capacity building, noting that “it will allow us to grow from strength to strength and help us attain our vision with precision. We will come calling again. We are Oliver Twist”, she said. 

Also speaking, the head training department of the institute, Mallam Umar Ahmad Ibrahim, said all that was needed to make delivery of the training programme a success had been worked out methodically for implementation and thanked Kaduna state government for approving the offer
