The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Nigeria, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi has felicitated with Christian faithfuls as they celebrate Easter and has called on all motorists to ensure full compliance to all road traffic laws.
Dr. Oyeyemi made the call in Abuja, to motorists across the country as they gear up towards a hitch free year 2020 Easter celebration.
He also noted that all road safety personnel have been adequately briefed on the imperatives of ensuring that motorists are made to drive in accordance with the stipulation of the Nigerian Highway Code and other regulations on best road practices.
The Corps Marshal while felicitating with the Christian faithfuls ahead of this year’s celebration of the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Christ, beckoned on them to manifest love care and obedience to established laws so as to portray the lessons of the Holy Week in positive light.
“The Corps will continue to sustain every arrangement already in place to ensure the safety of all road users, including aggressive public education campaigns and effective deployment of operational materials to enforce law and order, all drivers to desist from all forms of overloading of vehicles either with persons, animals or with goods and excessive speed among other bad road use behaviours,” Oyeyemi said.
While urging Nigerians to exhibit more tolerance and imbibe patience, the Corps Marshal also called for cooperation with law enforcement agents and ensure maximum compliance with all established laws so as to avoid the wrath of the law.
He wished travellers a happy and safe celebration.
