Lagos has some of the busiest roads in Nigeria.

The Lagos State Ministry of Transport on Monday said that winners of the ministry’s annual Be Road Friendly, BRF, competition, held in 2013 travelled to the U.K. on a seven-day transport education tour.

This was in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the ministry, Sina Thorpe, in Lagos.

“Six winners of the Be Road Friendly, BRF, Year 2013 competition organised by LASTSAP in the ministry of transportation have travelled to the U.K. on a seven-day transport education tour,” the statement said.

The Senior Special Assistant to the state governor, Babatunde Fashola, on Transport Education, Mariam Masha, advised the winners to be observant.

She also urged them to be disciplined and be of good conduct throughout their stay in the U.K.

“The winners from primary, junior and senior secondary school categories are to be focused while on the trip. You are the agent of change in the society as well as the future leaders of this country, Nigeria,” the statement said.

The winners are Achanya Mary of Langbasa Primary School, Ajah; Adeoye Samuel of Ajelogo Primary School, Ketu and Anipupo Adesewa of Government Comprehensive Junior College, Agege.
