Open varsity approves study centre for corps

21 October 2014, 07:55 Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The National Open University of Nigeria has approved the establishment of a study centre by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

This, according to a senior officer, is in line with the corps sustained drive to build a world class and knowledge-driven government agency and promote professionalism among its operatives in the discharge of its statutory mandate.
Vice Chancellor of the Open University, Professor Vincent Tenebe, said FRSC remained committed in its efforts to deliver on its statutory mandate as manifested through reduction in road crashes in Nigeria.

He described the initiative of creating a study centre for the corps as a value-adding move that would positively impact on the FRSC operatives on service delivery.

According to him, the National Open University enjoyed similar partnership with the Nigeria Customs Service, Nigeria Police, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, National Union of Road Transport Workers and other relevant government agencies and organizations.

He also disclosed that the approval of an FRSC study centre is coming at a time the university had established a Department on Transportation, adding that the synergy would enhance the intellectual capacity of FRSC personnel on road safety management and traffic administration.
Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, said the corps’ robust digitalization process would provide seamless integration of the FRSC personnel into the National Open University academic programmes.
He added that the partnership would further open a new vista of opportunity for FRSC personnel to improve on their academic profile while discharging daily routine functions and will also provide the plank for the corps to seek additional windows to enhance its capacity building drive for staff.
