Minister of Works, Arc Mike Onolememe has charged the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to further extend the frontiers of its operations under the World bank-assisted Safe Corridor projects, to include some notable critical routes on the nation’s highways such as the Lagos-Ibadan and Abuja-Lokoja roads.

Speaking during the formal handing over of 16 patrol vehicles and other operational equipment  to the FRSC  under World Bank Safe Corridor projects, the Works Minister said “this occasion clearly underlines the Federal Roads Development’s objectives to reduce fatalities on Nigerian roads by 50% in order to improve safety along the selected Safe Road Corridors.

The distribution of these patrol vehicles along the safe corridor will enhance road safety management and increase safe enforcement strategies. Our determination in this regard cannot and will not in the least, be compromised because the lives of our citizens using these roads is vital for our socio-economic renewal and indeed, national transformation”.
