[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr. Boboye Oyeyemi has urged states that are yet to set up their traffic agencies to do so, as the Corps is ready to help in the training of  personnel of such agencies in the FRSC academy.

He stated this in his address at a strategic session with Sector Commanders at the FRSC Headquarter in Abuja last weekend while reviewing 2016 Half Year Corps Performance.

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.

While acknowledging the support of the Federal Government for the Corps and road safety in Nigeria, Oyeyemi reiterated that the success of the management is imperative, as well as monitoring and evaluating processes and procedures to ensure continuous effectiveness in the administration and operational activities of Corps.

He restated the commitment of Corps to unwaveringly tackle the use of substandard tyres by motorists in Nigeria, to curb excessive speeding, overloading, number plate violation, timely removal of materials causing obstruction of movement on Nigerian roads, and the commencement of the enforcement of speed limiting device.
