Speaking at the commissioning of the operational vehicles in Abuja, George Akume said President Bola Tinubu is committed to transport infrastructure to enhance transformative growth.

Akume said :

Akume noted that the deployment of newly commissioned operational vehicles would help improve the quality of the road safety management approach in Nigeria.

The SFG said :

“The Federal Government is, therefore, in sync with this effort of FRSC and encourages other agencies of Government at all levels to develop similar resourceful ways to improve their work processes in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Also speaking at the event, the Corps Marshal, FRSC, Dauda Biu, noted that inadequate patrol, rescue and recovery logistics continue to hinder the ability of the Corps to perform optimally.

Biu said :

“Inadequate facilities continue to undermine our effective presence on the wide network of roads across the country, and the promptness with which we attend to rescue and clearance of obstruction needs on our roads.”

“Let me, on behalf of the entire officers and men of the Corps, reaffirm the readiness and preparedness of the Corps to perform optimally with these additional tools.”

While assuring that the new vehicles will be deployed for immediate use across areas of need all over the country, Biu added that the Corps has established 102 formations consisting of 34 Area Commands, 56 Unit Commands, 10 outposts, and 2 Zebra Commands.
