It said that the Corps Marshal, Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, urged the marshals and other recently promoted personnel to handle the responsibilities that had come with their new ranks effectively.

The statement also charged every personnel of the commission to key into the vision of the corps marshal, adding that this was to reduce road crashes in the country to zero per cent.

It also said that Oyeyemi on Thursday embarked on another aerial surveillance on the Enugu-Onitsha corridor to ensure hitch-free movement during the New Year celebration.

The corps marshal, according to the statement, called on road users to be law abiding on the roads.
