The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Boboye Oyeyemi has appealed to motorists to always obey road safety laws.
His timely advice is coming in the part of the year when the most accidents are recorded on Nigerian roads.
Oyeyemi said the crashes are the result of human error, and not diabolical, as some people believe. He was speaking at this year’s Ember Months campaign flag-off in Onitsha, Anambra State.
Anambra governor Willie Obiano was there, and unveiled government’s pledge to provide 40 ambulances, 20 speed boats and people to assist road traffic agencies.
He seized the occasion to serve a note of warning to motorists that his administration has procured speed detecting devices that would detect dangerous and over speed at every notable junction in the state.
On his part, one of the participant acknowledged the efforts of the FRSC to stamp out road crashes on the Nigerian highways but blame most of the crashes to some of their men who refuse to yield to safety corrections.
This year FRSC Ember Month campaign in Anambra featured the formal hand-over of three Hilux Jeeps and To Saloon cars to the Corps by the state government to enhance their operation in the state.
