The new Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, has read a riot act on reckless driving, saying tougher sanctions await reckless motorists across the country.
Oyeyemi gave this indication in an interview with State House correspondents shortly after President Goodluck Jonathan appointed him to replace Osita Chidoka who has been named the Minister of Aviation.
He said although it was too early to unveil his agenda for the Corps, he would work hard to build on the foundation already laid by his predecessor, Chidoka.
He said, “The foundation has been laid. We shall continue the transformation of the FRSC. We shall not fail Nigerians. “We already have a foundation that we will build on. We will improve on it. It is too early now. But we will do our best.”
Speaking further, Oyeyemi identified attitude of the Nigerian motoring public as the bane towards safer roads in the country and pledged that the FRSC will harness its potentials to ensure strict enforcement of traffic rules and regulations.
