The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi has commended Nigerians for embracing the Corps’ public sensitisation programme on tyres with enthusiastic acceptance of the campaign.
Speaking at the opening of the 2016 Corps Marshal’s Second Quarter strategic session held at the FRSC National Headquarters, Abuja, with the Zonal and Sector Commanders, Oyeyemi expressed satisfaction with the impact created by the public awareness campaign on tyres, noting that within the short period that the sesnsitisation programme was held, people embraced it with so much interest that they now check the date of manufacture of the tyres and prefer the ones manufactured in the current year.
The Corps Marshal stated that the strategic session was to enable the Commanding Officers and Management review the Corps’ operational activities in the first quarter of the year and work towards the next quarter based on the results.
He noted that the session was in continuation of the capacity development programme of the FRSC to keep its Commanding Officers and Management constantly abreast of developments in terms of operations and advocacy.
“The reappraisal would enable us see how far we have gone in the goals we set for the year and areas that may require review,” he stated.
Oyeyemi reiterated the commitment of the Management to consultation and collaboration with relevant stakeholders to ensure partnership that could deliver safety for the people. He further pointed out that it was this policy of consultation that enhanced the Corps’ campaign on speed limiters and tyres with massive public enlightenment programme.
