FRSC Anambra collaborates with National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to intensify public enlightenment on traffic rules and regulations.
Anambra State Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has promised to strengthen the existing relationship between it and National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). The move is part of measures aimed at enlightening the public on the need to obey traffic rules and regulations.
The Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Anambra State Mr. Andrew Kumapayi stated this when he received the co-ordinator of the National youth Service Corps in Anambra State, Mr Kehinde Aremu in his office in Awka.
According to Mr Kumapayi, the State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps will encourage more Corps members to participate in NYSC Road Safety Clubs to help in traffic control and public enlightenment.
He promised that the Federal Road Safety Corps in Anambra State will embark on more aggressive campaigns this year. The essence is to continue to reduce accidents on the highways.
Earlier, the Co-ordinator of the National Youth Service Corps in Anambra State, Mr Kehinde Aremu, said that the aim of the visit was to ask for more partnerships with the Federal Road Safety Corps. He commended the efforts of the Command in ensuring a better motoring environment in Anambra State.
He appealed to the command to always discourage Corps members from night travels especially beyond six o’clock in the evening. This is to avoid road traffic crashes and other security threats.
Mr. Aremu used the opportunity to call for the engagement of more Corps members as Road Safety ambassadors. He charged them to preach Road Safety during their service year.
