New FRSC boss pledges to end number plates, driver’s licence delay

New FRSC boss pledges to end number plates, driver’s licence delay

The new Corps Marshal of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Shehu Mohmmed, says modalities have been put in place to eliminate delays in accessing driver’s licenses and number plates.

Mohammed gave the assurance in Abuja at a reception organised in his honour by the alumnus of College of Advance Studies (CAS) Zaria on Saturday.

The corps marshal said he would address the incessant complaint of delay in accessing number plates and drivers licenses, especially in the FCT.

“I went on a facility assessment in our FCT office today; the causes of the delay are numerous; some are internal, while others are technical and financial,’’ he said.

The FRSC boss said that he had summoned the technical partners and supervisors to find immediate and lasting solutions to the problem.

“I want to assure you that the number plates problems will be over, and FCT is our priority,’’ Mohammed said.

He also spoke on efforts being made by the FRSC to reduce the rate of traffic accidents and ensure strict compliance with traffic regulations.

He, therefore, solicited the support of all Nigerians, particularly motorists, to make Nigerian roads safer for all.

“I have more than 36,000 staff with 600 formations nationwide, but it is a herculean task, and I need your support,’’ he added.

The new Corps Marshal expressed appreciation for the solidarity and recognition by the association.

“It is gratifying for me to interact with my school and classmates, whom I am meeting today after many years,’’ he said.

He described his appointment as destined by God and pledged to justify the confidence reposed in him by President Bola Tinubu.

In his address, the Chairman of the Alumni association, Comrade Kabiru Shehu, said the reception was organised to honour the corps marshal for attaining the peak of his career.

“Shehu Mohmmed was known to be a brilliant, intelligent, and humble student; this is what led to his success,’’ he said.

He urged the new corps marshal to work hard towards improving the operations of the organisation. (NAN)
