18 states yet to establish traffic management agencies – FRSC


Boboye Oyeyemi, Corps Marshal, FRSC

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has urged state governments that have yet to establish their traffic management agencies to do so in line with the Nigeria Road Safety Strategy (NRSS).

Its Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, made the call at a meeting with heads of some state traffic management agencies and zonal commanders of the FRSC in Abuja on Wednesday.

Addressing newsmen on the sidelines of the meeting, Oyeyemi said state traffic management agencies were critical to the attainment of the NRSS objectives.

Implementation of the NRSS, which targets a 35-percent reduction in road traffic accidents in the country by 2018, is hinged on the synergy between the federal and state governments.

Besides, Oyeyemi said statistics had shown that states with traffic management agencies had better road safety records than those without.
