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.
Rationale for the Award
Several studies and researches have pointed to many variables that has over time affected the Nigerian transportation sector such as
â€¢ Poor /low safety awareness
â€¢ Poorly constructed road maintenance
â€¢ Unworthiness of motor vehicles
â€¢ Uniformed drivers
â€¢ National low budget
â€¢ Sustainable polices and funding
â€¢ Inadequate training of traffic management
â€¢ Road infrastructure etc.
â€¢ Inadequate security on the roads and parks
â€¢ Misplacing of safety and revenue etc.
However these shortcomings, the TLEA (Award) will bridge the gap between advocacy for a holistic transport reforms and recognition of outstanding exemplary performance in the industry.
It is believed that this recognition and celebration of deserving individuals and organizations will birth a new breed of committed professionals and capable public officers who are driven and motivated by pursuit of exemplary service and the urge to compete using the industry best practices.
The scope of the inaugural award will feature eight (8) categories of award and selection of transportation ambassadors with a year tenure. All awardees will be drawn from the public and private sectors.
