Corps Marshal Warns Personnel To Avoid Political Participation, Piloting Of Convoys

As political activities geared towards the 2023 general elections gather momentum across the country, the Acting Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dauda Ali Biu has charged Commanding Officers nationwide to ensure that Staff under their jurisdiction maintain political neutrality, as well as avoid any form of participation in political rallies, campaigns and also avoid piloting political convoys.

The directive was given in reference to the FRSC (Establishment) Act which stipulates the status of the Corps as a public service agency that does not have any political affiliation, but solely established to provide essential services to all citizens, irrespective of their political interests or representation.

According to Bisi Kazeem, Assistant Corps Marshal, Corps Public Education Officer, FRSC Headquarters, in Abuja on Monday said that the Commanding Officers were directed to be sensitive to the plight of road users and prepare to tackle any traceable traffic gridlock that could arise as a result of the aforementioned political activities by ensuring adequate deployment of personnel for ease of movement in form of traffic controls and traffic calming.
