Ember months: FRSC Corps Marshal seeks road users’ support



Accident scene

Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), on Friday urged road users to support the drive to reduce road crashes, especially during the Ember months.

Oyeyemi spoke in Ibadan, during the inauguration of the new office complex of FRSC RS11.3, Oyo State Sector Command, Eleyele, in Ibadan.

The Corps Marshal said the FRSC’s effort to reduce road crashes to the barest minimum in Nigeria needed cooperation of all road users and Nigerians in general, to have the desired success.

“We can have a crash, but let it be zero fatality because life is of essence, and we can achieve the desired result through the cooperation of everyone.

“We are making effort that whenever a crash occurs it does not affect free movement of people,’’ Oyeyemi said.

The Corp Marshal said the FRSC had been getting it right since inception of President Muhammadu Buhari’ s administration due to financial support.

“ When I assumed office in 2014, I discovered that the harassment by landlords and court injunctions to vacate the corps rented apartments were too much.

“I set a target that before the end of my two term tenure, we needed to build our own offices in states where we did not have permanent offices, and by God’s grace, we have completed 11 commands now,” he said.

The corps marshal appreciated the support given by President Muhammadu Buhari and Oyo State government toward the completion of the new office in Oyo State.

Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State, on his part, said the new office of the corps was another milestone in his administration’s quest to boost the security and welfare of people of the state in terms of safety on the roads.

Ajimobi was represented by the deputy governor, Mr Moses Adeyemo.

He said his government had always played a pioneering and significant role in ensuring that the overall objective for founding the corps, which was essentially road safety administration and management, was achieved.

Ajimobi commended the corps for exhibiting a high level of professionalism in the discharge of their responsibilities.

He urged them to do more in view of ever increasing challenges facing road users in Nigeria.

The governor said his administration would continue to do its best to support FRSC and other security agencies in the state.

This, he said, was to ensure that they gave their best to the people of Oyo State.

The Oyo State Sector Commander, Cecilia Alao,  said the new office of the command would motivate the officers to be more dedicated to work.

She appreciated the support given by the federal and state governments, as well as other stakeholders in the state.
