The activity took place in the presence of officials from EFOPPRIMES, representatives of NGOs, the National Police and several guests. This training was rich in theoretical and practical lessons.

For the General Manager of the establishment, this training session is well appreciated by the participants because it will allow them to carry out their missions well. He then thanked the GOAL and HELP NGOs for the confidence placed in EFOPPRIMES and called on other organizations that have expressed their interest in this training on safe driving, to register their drivers so that they are equipped.

For his part, the Comptroller General, Dr Abdoulaye HASSANE DIALLO, specified that this training will allow trained drivers to be competitive and to take into account all the requirements of safe driving. “Your employers will expect the results of this work from you. We trained you because you are a very important and essential link in the production chain. Without the drivers, I believe the operation of a service could be disrupted. That’s why we cannot neglect you, ”he said. Dr Abdoulaye HASSANE DIALLO wanted to indicate that from its opening, to date, EFOPPRIMES has trained thousands of learners and students, thanks to a firm commitment and self-financing from its Founder, Mr. Yacine HASSANE DIALLO and a good support from well-motivated administrative and teaching staff. “Our school is the only approved and authorized establishment in the field in Niger, unlike certain firms and centers which provide us with competition, often unfair,” denounced the Controller General of EFOPPRIMES.
