Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) says it will collaborate with the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), the police and other security agencies to ensure safety and security during the Easter celebrations.
Sunday Ajayi, sector commander of the commission in Anambra State, disclosed this to journalists at the commission’s headquarters in Awka, the state capital.
He said following the collaboration with other security agencies, there would be no cause for alarm, as the commission was poised to ensure sanity on the highways due to increase in human and vehicular movement because of the Easter holiday.
According to the sector commander, as part of FRSC’s routine duty, it has equally embarked on public enlightenment as well as meeting with fleet operators to educate them on the need to prevail on their drivers to comply with traffic regulations as well as handle passengers with utmost care while on the highways this Easter season and thereafter.
Ajayi further disclosed that the commission would increase its presence on the highways, especially at suspected traffic flashpoints, emphasising that the commission would have robust enforcement during the Easter celebrations.
The Anambra FRSC boss, who advised members of the public to report traffic congestions, obstructions and other impediments to traffic flow, warned that whoever contravened traffic regulations would be held culpable and made to face the law.
