Speaking during the visit, Chairman Senate Committee on Land Transport, Senator Olugbenga Ashafa, charged the institution ‎to imbibe modern management techniques as strategies in creating awareness on what they can do and how to generate revenue.

“As it is now, the institute is something to be proud of, the management has done very well in maintaining a vibrant environmentally friendly atmosphere ‎for people to come in.

“And we are expecting that they work more on the area of internally generated revenue ‎because they have so many equipments on ground and there are so many services they can render.

“So they should imbibe m‎odern management techniques as strategies to ensure that awareness is created to Nigerians on what they can do.

“Particularly in the area of attitudinal change towards driving so as to save lives and ensure that they meet the minimum standard of what is expected of a driver.”

‎”Having noted the importance of the institute to safety on Nigerian roads, the committee is dedicated to encouraging the institute to work harder in order to upgrade the institute to a university degree awarding status.

‎”Incidentally, this is the only educational institution fully focused on Transport Technology in the West Africa sub Region. Hence it should become an avenue for education tourism for Nigeria.” He ended
