Nigerian Breweries Plc in partnership with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Thursday flagged off the 10th edition of the Don’t Drink and Drive campaign in Lagos. The campaign is a corporate social responsibility initiative by the company to improve safety on Nigerian roads by discouraging the habit of drink driving by drivers. 

Kufre Ekanem, Nigerian Breweries’ Corporate Affairs Adviser explained during the flag off that the partnership with the FRSC is a major pillar for sustaining the Don’t Drink and Drive initiative over the years. “This partnership is a major pillar of our responsible consumption campaign which is part of our long term strategic sustainability agenda, Brewing a Better World. This agenda also focuses on the delivery of concrete commitments in areas where our company can directly make impact through its operations,” he said.
