President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday commended the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) for its excellent performance, as the agency marked its silver jubilee in Abuja.
At the opening of the FRSC’s 25th anniversary international conference, however, President Jonathan, former President Ibrahim Babangida, Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, and his Ekiti counterpart, Kayode Fayemi, as well as the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, admitted that the agency has challenges that need consistent efforts and co-operation from all Nigerians to meet.
One of the challenges, according to the President, was the constant menace of trailers and other heavy-duty haulage facilities on Nigerian roads and spaces posing real dangers to human lives.
The president said: “As part of our continuing demonstration of commitment to safer road environment, I have directed the Corps Marshal to work in concert with relevant stakeholders to come up with action plan on the provision of parks for trailers and tankers that park indiscriminately on some major roads across the country. These vehicles constitute hazards to other road users, and government is determined to address the challenge.”
