FRSC partners NYCN on effective traffic in Imo state according to the Corps Commander, Adekanye Joshua Oluwafemi.
Adekanye Joshua Oluwafemi, Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Imo State Command, says the corps will always work with members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) to guarantee proper traffic management, particularly in Owerri.
When the executive members of the Imo State chapter of the NYCN paid the corps a familiarization visit at the command’s headquarters in Egbu, Owerri, on Wednesday, the Commander offered the assurance.
He stated that the FRSC was established to avoid road accidents, and that safety should be a top priority for all road users because life has no substitute.
“FRSC is commissioned to creating a safer motoring environment through compliance with the FRSC Act of 2007…motorists do not need road safety agents to do the right thing. Driving License, Number Plate and Driving School are needful to secure vehicles and life which is precious to all,” he said.
Oluwafemi asked the group to schedule a safety public education program at the state’s motor parks to assist the corps in educating drivers, as the corps cannot be everywhere at the same time.
“The corps is ready to collaborate with you to complement our work. NYCN can be of immense help too to clear any traffic gridlock in Owerri and environs. We commend your new leadership and reiterate our firm partnership on free movement with effective traffic control,” Oluwafemi said.
Deputy Corps Commander Abdul Danlami and Superintendent Route Commander Ekpe Matthew thanked the council for the courtesy visit and stated that the FRSC is always willing to collaborate with any serious and relevant body to improve road safety.
Comr. Barr Ezinwanne Chimuanya Udoka, Chairman of NYCN Imo State Chapter, assured the FRSC of Imo youths’ readiness to assist it in effective traffic management and control.
“We reassured FRSC of the readiness of Imo youths to support it holistically. We also pledged our unflinching support to the corps and the need to partner with it to ensure effective traffic management in Owerri metropolis. Hence there is need for revalidation of the council number plate to ensure transparency in its usage by members,” Udoka stated.
