Some have graduated while some are still undergoing the training.

"And I am want to use this opportunity as we are approaching the end of the year and prepare for new year, I will want to Implore our road users  and motorists to particularly commercial drivers against impatience, over speeding, over loading while plying highways as these were among the major causes of road accidents.

I want to also call on relevant stakeholders to work together in the bid to ensure a safer motoring environment within Oyo state and Nigeria as a whole during and after these ember months.

"Also appealed to government at all levels to fix all bad roads, as most of the highways have become death traps. As we all know impatience and lack of knowledge of the highway codes, over speeding and over loading were among the leading causes of accidents.
