The Federal Road Safety Commission FRSC is to train states traffic officers for effective traffic administration in the country.
The Corps. Marshal of FRSC Dr Boboye Oyeyemi stated this in Abuja at a meeting with heads of state traffic management agencies.
Dr Oyeyemi explained that efficient performance of States traffic officers would enable the commission concentrate on Federal High ways.
He noted that the corps facilities in Enugu and plateau States have the capacity to train States traffic officers on modern road patrol.
“The Corps’ efforts are in line with its mandate as the Lead For Road Traffic Administration and Safety Management in Nigeria which must necessarily assist all stakeholders to expand their exposures,” he stated..
“All over the world road safety is a shared responsibility; that is why the Corps has been encouraging States to establish their own Traffic Management Agencies. There is no gain saying that some States have been assisted in the capacity development of their personnel at the FRSC Academy, in Udi, Enugu State,” he added.
He therefore solicited the support of States traffic officers towards ensuring free flow of traffic during the Christmas and end of year activities across the country.
