Alegeh noted there was need for more funding for the Corps in its determination to carry out its responsibilities to road users.
Oyeyemi commended the NBA President and members of the association for the enormous contributions they have made to the success of the FRSC's operations over the years.
He said the FRSC remained sensitive to the rights of all road users.
“It is the policy of the FRSC to always render prompt attention to victims of road traffic crashes, give options of judicial protection to road traffic violators by allowing them to go to court when the notice of offence is issued to them, or for them to make payment of the fines in the banks, whenever apprehended for traffic violations if they wish to waive their rights to court trials,” Oyeyemi said.
