16 April 2015, 20:36

Abuja - The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Kenneth Minimah, has pledged to support the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in the area of manpower development.

He gave the assurance while receiving the Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, on a courtesy visit to the Chief of Army Staff at the Army Headquarters in Abuja.

Minimah said both the Nigerian Army and the FRSC had always maintained symbiotic relationships that stretch many years back, pointing out that the two organisations would continue to share the vision of national security and safety in the interest of the country.

"It has been a wonderful relationship between the Nigerian Army and the FRSC, and that relationship covers areas of training, operations, public enlightenment and civil-military relations," he added.

He pointed out the Army had always been active in the FRSC's monthly walking/jogging exercise, while the Army continues to rely on the Corps in traffic management whenever the organisation had a programme.

"Let me assure you that the Army will continue to support the FRSC in its manpower development programmes and in order to sustain the synergy. I hope to personally pay a courtesy visit on you for further collaboration in areas of Information and Communication Technology," Minimah told Oyeyemi.

Oyeyemi expressed gratitude to the Army for its consistent support to the FRSC, especially in the areas of capacity building and provision of security during in times of crisis.

He assured the Chief of Army Staff of the willingness of the Corps to continue to partner with the Army for intelligence sharing, manpower
development and involvement in road traffic matters for the attainment of national safety and security.
