Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, on Thursday, commissioned an ultramodern new office complex of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, built by the Federal Government and fully furnished by the Kebbi state
Elated Bagudu, described the event as very important for the FRSC, Kebbi State and indeed the nation.
“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 and erecting this befitting structure.”
The Kebbi State Governor further extolled the efforts of the corps in providing similar facilities across Nigeria, helping to make the nation’s roads safer and secure.
“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,” Bagudu stated.
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.”
Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, FRSC Corps Marshall, also commended Governor Bagudu for the magnanimous donation of the land for the project, as well as fully equipping it.
He said 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.
