FRSC Partners Ministry To Remove Speed Bumps In Nasarawa State

Published

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Nasarawa State Command, says it is partnering with the Federal Ministry Power, Works and Housing to remove speed bumps on highways across the state.

Mrs Faustina Alegbe, Sector Commander of FRSC in the state, disclosed this on Friday in Lafia at a workshop organised by the corps for stakeholders in the transport sector in the state.

Alegbe said that in a bid to reduce the prevalent rate of accidents on the highways, the FRSC in the state was collaborating with the ministry to remove all speed bumps.

“Any major highway is not supposed to be littered with speed bumps. Myself and the Federal Controller of Works had visited his Royal Highness the Emir of Lafia and he agreed with us.

“So, we are about fixing a time when we can go and remove the speed bumps on the highways across the state,” she said.

To achieve the goal, she said, the corps had embarked on advocacy using the media, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) safety club, government agencies and schools and tertiary institutions.

She called on motorists to complement the FRSC’s efforts at reducing road crashes by obeying traffic regulations and avoid drinking before driving.

In his paper titled: ‘Seizure and Driving’, Dr Chidozie Adoku, Head of Department, Internal Medicine, Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia, advised drivers to observe routine medical check-up to ascertain their medical condition before driving.

Malam Yusuf Salihu, a commercial driver and participant at the workshop, expressed relief over the decision of FRSC to remove speed bumps on the state highways.

Salihu, however, admitted that motorists must reciprocate the gesture by adhering strictly to high way rules and regulations.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the workshop brought together drivers from government agencies and commercial drivers across the 13 local government areas of the state. (NAN)
