"The FRSC is the most disciplined para-military organization", says deputy gov., Cross River state

The deputy governor of Cross River state says he thinks highly of the Federal Road Safety Commission(FRSC).


At the 2015 Ember Months Campaign Rally by the Federal Road Safety Commission(FRSC), in Calabar, Cross River State, the deputy governor of Cross River state, Prof. Ivara Esu, revealed his opinion of the agency.

“The FRSC is the most discipline para-military organization we have in Nigeria today. Discipline in the sense that it is one Corps in which corruption that is prime on the road side is very much reduced among its personnel; if at all it exist.

I have never had the opportunity to see any road Marshal collecting money and letting you pass if you break the law. We want it to continue that way because that is one way of ensuring the reduction of road accident on our roads”

While flagging off rally, the FRSC’s Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, represented by Assistant Corps Marshal Austine Ipoh, spoke on the importance the event.

“I therefore use this medium to acknowledge the efforts of Governor to construct the 260km super high way dual carriage from Calabar to northern part of Nigeria. It is expected that when completed the road would not only alleviate the hardship faced by commuters, but would be used in strict conformity with traffic regulations.

The launch of this ember month campaign in Cross River State is strategic and I fully align with it, but it must go beyond the street rallies. I solicit your support to imbibe safety consciousness and consideration to other road users, as you travel to celebrate the festivities with your loved ones.”

Do you agree that the FRSC is the most disciplined para-military organization in Nigeria?
