A Federal Government partly funded ultramodern new office complex for the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC in Kebbi State was commissioned on Thursday, November 25.
Naija News understands that the state Governor, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu commissioned the complex which was reportedly furnished by his government.
Speaking at the event, Bagudu was optimistic that the project will provide motivational tool for the corps.
The governor extended his gratitude to the FRSC Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, for making judicious use of the land his government donated to the corps.
He said: “It is significant because it helps to provide a motivational tool to the officers and personnel of the corps. Sequel to resource limitation, FRSC which is a very important agency is given less attention than given to others.
“I must therefore commend the Chairman of the agency and the Corps Marshal for utilizing the land donated to it by the state government and erecting this befitting structure.”
Governor Bagudu further extolled the efforts of the corps in providing similar facilities across Nigeria, helping to make the nation’s roads safer and secure.
He said: “Kebbi State always stands out as the various communities appreciate and celebrate the sustainable hard work and unwavering commitment of the security agencies.”
“We will continue to support and collaborate with FRSC, security agencies and other MDAs, to ensure the welfare and comfort of the people of the state,” the Kebbi State governor reiterated.
In his remark, the Chairman of the Corps, Alhaji Buhari Bello, said the office complex was the twelfth to be commissioned under his leadership of the board of the corps.
Bello said, “I feel fulfilled for this milestone as it bolsters the diligent discharge of our core mandate of ensuring an efficient road traffic administration and management in Nigeria.
“We are committed to reducing the deadly carnages on the nation’s highways and we will not relent in this direction.”
Also giving his remark, FRSC Corps Marshall Oyeyemi, praised Governor Bagudu for the magnanimous donation of the land for the project, as well as fully equipping it.
He acknowledged that the project was the 16th to be commissioned in the last seven years, adding that it would provide a conducive atmosphere for officers and men across Nigeria.
Boboye also disclosed that he would deploy a new patrol vehicle to the office next week in addition to another one promised by Governor Bagudu.
