Abuja - Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Academy in Udi, Enugu State would be upgraded to an African regional centre for the study of road safety, Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of FRSC. Boboye Oyeyemi disclosed.
Addressing cadets currently undergoing basic course at the institution, Oyeyemi expressed commitment to strengthening the academy through provision of physical infrastructure and human capacity development of the staff.
He said the academy was conceived with global best practices in mind.
“All hands must be on deck to ensure that the vision of the founding fathers is realised,” he added.
Oyeyemi added that with the level of development going on at the institution, he was convinced of the possibility of the centre contributing to regional road safety.
“It is gratifying to note that 27 years after the establishment of the FRSC, and one year after the relocation of the Academy to its permanent site here, the institution is on course in all its programmes,” he stated.
Oyeyemi commended the management and directing staff of the Academy for the commitment they have shown in upholding the vision of the institution, which he said, was to make it the African regional centre for the study of road safety with sufficient capacity to uphold the values of global best practice in road safety management and administration.
