The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi says there are at least 79 portions in the critical road corridors in the country calling for Federal Government’s attention before the festive season.
In a recent interview with NAN at the FRSC Academy in Udi, Enugu State, Oyeyemi said that the corps had been talking with the Ministry of Power,Works and Housing on how best to put most of the critical road corridors in shape before the yuletide.
In his words, ‘we have submitted a report containing 79 portions in the critical road corridors throughout the country to the Minister of Power, Works and Housing. We believe the report will be given due attention before the yuletide’.
According to him, it is also necessary to fix critical road corridors to check traffic build-ups. “We thank God that the Minister of Works has graciously agreed to our plea of fixing and doing palliative works on most of the critical road corridors identified”.
On Ember month programme, FRSC boss said the corps was ready to carry out comprehensive enforcement of traffic violations, to serve as deterrent for negative road habits and negligence. “We will critically look out for expired tyres, speed limiting device (for commercial buses), overloading, reckless driving, seat belt usage, driving licence, among others. All these range of items and compliance, when got right, will engender safe and secured road for all road users in all our road corridors during the ember months’‘ he said.
