FRSC calls for caution by road users at Easter

06 April 2015, 12:49

Abuja - Boboye Oyeyemi, Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), has called on road users to be safety-conscious in their movement during the Easter celebration.

Oyeyemi made the call in an Easter message signed by his Media Assistant, Sani Abdullahi, and made available to the media, in Abuja on Monday.

In the message, Oyeyemi said Nigerians should hold tight to the spirit of peace and safer road culture as they observed the Easter celebration.

"Easter season is one of the critical periods when human and vehicular traffic heightens in the country. This poses challenges of ensuring safer road environment for the FRSC."

"There is need for peaceful coexistence among Nigerians and to be defensive and considerate to other road users while driving during Easter and beyond.”

The message said extra caution must therefore be taken by those traveling from one location to the other for the celebration.

It assured that FRSC had taken proactive measures by deploying adequate men and providing necessary logistics at strategic locations across the country.

It explained that that this was done to address any of the road safety challenges that the travellers might face.

The message said the commission had deployed adequate number of officers, marshals, vehicles and relevant logistics at some of the identified black spots across the country.

It pointed out that this was done to keep the roads safe and obstruction-free during the celebration.

It commended FRSC personnel for the commitment they displayed during March 28 Presidential/National Assembly elections and urged them to be prepared to repeat the same feat during the forthcoming governorship election.

It stated that the commission would continue to support the nation in the task of achieving socio-economic goals.

The agency had earlier commended road users for their cooperation in keeping the roads accident-free during the last elections.
