Background

T

he transportation sector, as a major industry in any economy, generates over 48% of revenue and employment.
Despite this feat, in Nigeria, it is one sector that has been characterized by apathy to embrace global practices that could have improved the safety of lives and properties of commutters, create more jobs, reduce accidents, ensure safer roads and make the sector generally more attractive.
Nevertheless, despite its challenges, the sector has witnessed some remarkable success and triumphs. This is despite the fact that the sector has had no industry award programme designed as an effective performance management tool toward motivations for excellent service delivery, improvement and general promotions of safety.
To this end, the TLEA Award is poised to recognise stakeholders who have played an active role and demonstrated competence and capabilities in supporting the Nigerian transportation industry.
To achieve this, there will be different categories of awards to celebrate stakeholders drawn from both the public and private sector.
