Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi has tasked staff of the commission on the need to ensure inter-agency collaboration in the course of performing their assignments, saying no organisation could do it alone without the support of others.
According to Bisi Kazeem, head, Media Relations and Strategy, FRSC, Oyeyemi stated this while addressing staff of Gombe State Sector Command of the FRSC during his advocacy visit to the state.
He said road safety is a shared responsibility of all stakeholders,
and its campaigns could only succeed when deliberate efforts were made to involve other relevant stakeholders in the campaigns, noting that the aggressive partnership initiatives the corps is pursuing was to demonstrate that spirit.
While commending the founding fathers of the FRSC for making
partnership ideals central to its campaigns, Oyeyemi disclosed that the involvement of traditional and religious leaders to complement the efforts of other stakeholders in the campaigns to make the roads safer was to demonstrate the shared nature of road safety responsibility.
He commended the staff of the corps as well Special Marshals and Road Safety Clubs for their various contributions to the
success of public sensitisation programmes in the country, calling for the sustenance of the present commitment.
Oyeyemi applauded the Gombe State government for its logistics support for the FRSC in the state, pointing out that the efforts demonstrated its concern for the welfare and safety of the people of the state.
He urged the staff to reciprocate the kind gestures of the state
government by improving on their enforcement as well as rescue activities, saying there must be improvements in response time to distress calls and their contributions to the sustenance of the existing peace and tranquility in the state.
