Sambo hails FRCS, urges good driving

29 August 2013, 16:01Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Amina Sambo, the wife of the Vice President, commended the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the Corps Marshal, Osita Chidoka for putting in place adequate infrastructure that she said was comparable to international standards.

“To be candid, I am very impressed with what I have seen here. The Corps Marshal has done very well from what I have seen during the facility tour.

"I am convinced that he has raised the FRSC’s level to international standards," she said at the National Headquarters of the FRSC in Abuja, where she renewed her own driver’s licence in accordance with the biometric capture component of the new licence.

“The environment here is very neat and friendly and the officers are friendly and professional in their duties. I pray that Almighty God will assist him (Chidoka) to continue to do more as we transform our country."

Before renewing her, Sambo was taken around the FRSC facilities by senior Corps officials who update her on the current status of the Corps and its preparedness to tackle the challenges of road traffic management and administration in the country.

She also called on other motorists to ensure that they updated and their records in line with the new licensing system.

President Goodluck Jonathan commissioned the new driver’s licence and number plate in 2001.

“I hope the people will be law abiding. We need to be careful to know what the law says; but most importantly, we need to do what the law stipulates, because by so doing, we would be demonstrating good driving culture.

“Drivers should also cooperate with law enforcement officers especially Road Safety Officers in the enforcement of traffic rules which are meant to protect us. This will help to prevent unnecessary loss of lives and property on the highways," Chidoka said.
