Oyeyemi said, ” the Corps is ready to continue to collaborate with sister agencies and state traffic agencies like LASTMA, asking, ” states that are yet to set up traffic agencies to do so as the Corps is ready to help in training of the personnel of such agencies in FRSC academy.”

He explained that the goals of the Corps to meet its mandate of reducing road traffic crashes is embedded in three strategies adopted by the Corps in 2016, to improve fleet regulation and sustain stakeholder’s consultation, to collaborate with states on improved road safety administration, and to improved enforcement and public education.
