Adequate traffic arrangements for Awolowo burial

06 October 2015, 09:03Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has assured of adequate traffic management during the burial rites of Hannah Idowu Dideolu Awolowo, the widow of late Premier of the Western Region, Chief Obafemi Awolowo.

She will be buried next month.

The Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, made the assurance when he led a group of  senior officers of the Corps to the Ikenne home of the Awolowo family to commiserate with them.

He described the late matriarch as an exemplary woman who lived in service of God and humanity.

“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.

Her burial has been scheduled for November 25. - CAJ News
