Roads agency to sustain tempo against violators

07 January 2015, 07:45Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) is embarking on an aggressive enforcement of traffic rules and regulations to ensure violators receive appropriate sanctions that could deter them from continuous violations.

The Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, stated this at Asaba, Delta State  during his assessment of the ongoing special operations in parts of the South-South and South—East geo-political zones of the country

He expressed satisfaction with the level of commitment shown by the Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Personnel nationwide in carrying out the successful operations during the festive period.

The Corps Marshal urged officers to sustain the tempo of the patrol in the New Year in order to consolidate on the gains made by the Corps.

“While I acknowledge the commitment shown by the FRSC personnel and support received from other agencies, it is pertinent to restate that we would sustain the tempo of enforcement this year," he said.

He said the success in last year’s exercise could be attributed to the support of the Federal Government, which provided the enabling environment through road construction and rehabilitation.

"...especially with the activation of the partnership with the World Bank, which provided us with some strategic logistics support,” he said.

He assured all road users of the agency’s commitment to their safety.

Oyeyemi commended road safety stakeholders including the Special Marshals for remaining steadfast in their support for the FRSC operations, promising that the Corps will not be distracted, but remain focused to achieving safer road environment.
