Following the unprecedented catastrophe of unparallel proportion that was about to engulf the Road Transport Sector in Nigeria, where over 40,881 crashes were recorded in the year 1976 alone; concerned citizens at home and in Diaspora led by Prof Wole Soyinka stood to liberate their fatherland from the shackles of Road Traffic crashes.

It was these and many other factors that informed the decision of the then Military President, Gen. Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida in 1988 to establish The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC). The organisation which has since served Nigerians as a lead agency in traffic and safety management is celebrating its 30th anniversary this weekend.
