Roads agency, consumer body deepen relations

03 December 2015, 12:31Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) and the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) will strengthen their partnership to enhance public safety and welfare of consumers.

This was the outcome of the meeting between the Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, and the Director General of the CPC, Dupe Atoki, during her courtesy visit on the Corps Marshal at the National Headquarters Abuja.

Atoki said both organisations shared some common values on issues of protecting the safety and welfare of the consumers through creation of adequate awareness on unethical practices of some service providers.

She said the importance of public awareness on issues of qualitative service delivery and the rights of the consumers to complain against poor services cannot be overemphasised.

“I have been keenly following your safety campaigns across the country, and it is our belief that if we work together, more positive results could be achieved in protecting members of the public against the practices of some unscrupulous service providers,” Atoki told her host.

Atoki called on the FRSC to join hands with the council for collective efforts against importers and manufacturers of fake tyres as well as those that engage in overloading and touting.

CPC will support FRSC in its campaign for speed control in the country through the introduction of the speed limiting devices, which will commence in April.

 “The relationship between the FRSC and the CPC has been cordial over the years but there is the need to step up the collaboration in the collective desire to save the consumers from the unwholesome practices of some service providers,” Atoki said.

Oyeyemi commended the council for the aggressive campaigns for consumers’ rights.

“The unrelenting efforts by the Council to create public awareness on consumer rights have made members of the public to become sensitive to issues of quality service delivery,” he said.

He pledged the support of the FRSC to the CPC campaign to make the country safe for all consumers through adequate awareness creation and application of sanctions.
