The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, has expressed satisfaction over the high level of discipline, commitment and dedication to road safety by his staff and road users in general.

His assessment was based on the amount of success recorded in the end of the year special patrol carried out by personnel of the FRSC during the Christmas period.

He therefore called for the sustenance of the zeal in the New Year operations.

Corps Public Education Officer, FRSC, Mr. Bisi Kazeem, made this known in a press statement made available to the FrontPage on Thursday.

Kazeem said the FRSC boss made his remark in his interim assessment of the Christmas patrol.

He said Oyeyemi praised the motoring public for keeping to the advice given by the Corps on obedience to traffic rules and regulations, saying everyone must remain on guard to achieve greater success in the continuing operations.

He said the Corps Marshal disclosed that from his personal assessment of the exercise as he visited several parts of the country and reports reaching him from the field commanders, there was high level of commitment, professionalism and devotion to duties by officers and marshals deployed for the assignment.

He further noted that so far, the exercise had been a tremendous success and an improvement over previous year’s operations.

Oyeyemi also commended motorists for their improved attitudes to road usage and urged them to sustain the habit in the drive towards the new year and beyond.

He expressed gratitude to the stakeholders including law enforcement agencies, transport unions and state governments where heavy traffic was anticipated for mobilising personnel and logistics towards crash and obstruction-free environment for all road users during the yuletide.

He stressed that such collaboration would be sustained beyond the celebrations.

“If the high level of discipline, commitment and orderliness we observed during the Christmas operations is sustained, we hope to achieve a better record this year,” the Corps Marshal stated.

It would be recalled that towards ensuring safer road environments during the yuletide season, FRSC launched special end of year operation codenamed, “Operation Zero Tolerance,” which involved massive deployment of personnel and logistics across the country from 18 December, 2018 to 15 January 2019.
