Indomie Fan Club (IFC), Nigeria’s largest children-based fan club, celebrates the end of 2021 with a road safety quiz competition. The competition was organised by the fan club in partnership with the Lagos, Ogun, and Abuja Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
The event took place at the FRSC Sector Command, Ojodu Berger, Lagos. The competition aims to create fun, excitement, bonding, and increase awareness of children to their immediate environment.
Speaking during the event at the FRSC Sector Command, Ojodu Berger, Lagos, the representative of the Sector Commander from Lagos, FRSC Deputy Corp Commandant, Azubike G. Onyemeh commended the consistent effort of DUFIL Prima Foods, makers of Indomie Noodles, stating that the commitment of the brand to the wellbeing of its key consumers is encouraging. “Children and young people make use of the road and traffic system every day either as passengers, pedestrians, cyclists or drivers. Road safety education in schools aims at preparing and equipping these vulnerable road user groups with the knowledge, skills, and positive attitudes that will enable them to stay safe.”
He further said this second edition of the Indomie Fan Club/FRSC quiz competition is focused on ensuring the lectures presented by the road safety personnel are well understood and put to use.

According to her, the IFC road safety quiz competition is aimed at evaluating the pupils’ understanding of road safety rules.
