FRSC to partner with states to ensure effective observation of rules
The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) is willing to work with all 36 states on effective traffic management.
This is announced by Boboye Oyeyemi, the corp marshal, represented by Dr Kayode Olagunju, the Assistant Corps Marshal of Head Policy, Research and Statistics at the news conference on the forthcoming 6th FRSC Annual Lecture Series in Abuja.
Oyeyemi said a partnership with all the states would make for effective traffic management nationwide.
"Contrary to what people believe; we want the various states to have their own traffic management outfit, it is only by that they can assist the corps within their jurisdictions.
People feel we want to be on a level where we are the only big player within the road safety sector and that other states can’t come up with their own agencies but that is not true.
That is why we are bringing in the chief executive of Lagos state to feature at the 6th FRSC lecture as an example of a state where such traffic outlet exist.
The chief executive will share his experience for other states to learn and see that FRSC encourages state agencies for effective coordination and control of traffic within their region.
The FRSC handles other issues on road safety, we have more than enough to manage when it comes to traffic management,’’ he said.
Guests of the annual lecture series, themed "Partnering with States in Road Safety Administration’’, include Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ ad Abubakar.
