Vivo Energy Ghana donates helmets to motorcyclists in Accra

Vivo Energy Ghana, the multiple award-winning exclusive licensee of the Shell brand in Ghana, has donated 100 motorbike helmets to members of the Unity Motorcycle Riders Association in Accra. The presentation was made during an educational session on road safety in collaboration with the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC).

The programme, which attracted about 500 motorbike riders from Nima, Mamprobi, Kaneshie, Agbogbloshie, Circle, Abossey Okai and Accra, formed part of Vivo Energy Ghana’s road safety campaign dubbed ‘My Road Safety, My Life’, following a similar programme in Tamale. 

The occasion was also used to educate motorcyclists on Shell Advance, a new lubricant designed to offer reliable, durable and quality protection for all motorbikes.

Speaking at the programme on behalf of the Managing Director of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mrs. Shirley Tony Kum, the Corporate Communications Manager, stressed the importance of road safety education to riders and provided them with some safety tips.

“As an oil marketing company, road safety is one of the key focus areas under our Community Investment initiatives. Motorbike riders face higher risks on our roads hence the decision to educate you on road safety, to make our roads safer,” said Mrs. Tony Kum.

“Motorcyclists should invest in good gear by wearing durable, non-slip gloves; boots that cover the ankles; and a correctly fitting helmet. You should also know your bike's limits and stick to the speed limit. As motorcyclists, you must also make sure that other drivers can see you by not riding in blind spots and always using your headlights,” she said.

The Head of Communications of the NRSC, Mr. Kwame Koduah Atuahene expressed the Commission’s sincere gratitude to Vivo Energy Ghana for its significant role in promoting road safety in Ghana, and shared the importance of such a programme for motorcycle riders.

“We believe this exercise will equip motorcycle riders with the needed skills and best road safety practices on our roads. The Commission would like to plead with all motorcycle riders to put the knowledge gained to use. Again, we thank Vivo Energy Ghana for this tremendous support,” he said.

Mr. Suleman Sule of the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate was also on hand at the event to educate bikers on traffic regulations, while the Assistant Regional Manager of the Driver Vehicle and Licensing Authority, Mr. Edwin Ofori, explained the process of acquiring a motorcycle driver's license.

The Chairman of Unity Motorcycle Riders Association, Mr. Issah Abubakari was also full of commendation for Vivo Energy Ghana and the NRSC for the training and endeavoured to ensure that members of the association would put the knowledge gained to good use to save their lives and those of others.

Vivo Energy Ghana has been a prominent force in the area of road safety. Previous initiatives include defensive driving training and presentation of an alcometer to the management of Achimota Bus Terminal; the presentation of road safety toolkits to the NRSC, and the mounting of lollipop stands for schools.
