“We are here to commiserate with the family on the
painful exit of the late matriarch, and to specially express our commitment to
providing adequate traffic management during the burial rites to make the
occasion hitch-free,” Oyeyemi said.
He added that the late Mrs Awolowo left behind a legacy
of service to humanity and the necessary traffic management during the burial
rites would be provided as a
demonstration of the Corps social responsibility.
“It is not as a favour to the family but as a
demonstration of our social responsibility role in furtherance of our statutory
function of making the roads crash and obstruction-free for all.”
Mrs Awolowo died of old age in September a few weeks
before her 100th birthday.
