Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who was recently appointed as an Advisory Board member of the United Nations Road Safety Trust Fund (UNRSTF) is currently representing Nigeria and Africa, at the inaugural meeting of the Board at the UN Secratariat in Geneva, Switzerland.


The UNRSTF was establish in April 2018 to address the worldwide accident crisis resulting in 1.3 million lives lost and additional 50 million injured on the road each year.

As a member of the UNRSTF Advisory Board, Amaechi will play an important part of collaborating to reducing the number of accidents and casualties; and making a real impact on global road safety, a statement from the minister’s aide said.


The United Nations Road Safety Trust Fund was established at the request of the UN Secretary-General, following suggestions made by several United Nations member States.

It aims to accelerate progress in improving global road safety by bridging the gap in the mobilization of resources for effective action at all levels.

Since Amaechi resumed office in November, 2015 as Minister of Transportation, there has been a renaissance in the Nigerian Transportation system. And his involvement in the UNRSTF will bring about more intervention in the area of road safety in Nigeria and Africa.
