ABUJA: THE Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) of Nigeria said the cooperation with the Airforce led to the reduction of road crashes and fatalities this past festive season. Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, thus expressed appreciation to the the force’s aerial support during the period.
Oyeyemi, in a letter of appreciation addressed to the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu, said the partnership and assistance rendered by the Nigerian Air Force through the deployment of its helicopters curbed road delays, crashes and death. These, he said, usually characterised the yuletide season.
“Your invaluable contribution led to the significant reduction in Road Traffic Crashes (RTC) which recorded 42 percent and 49 percent reduction in road traffic crashes and fatality respectively,” Oyeyemi said. The statistics were comparable to the same period in 2013.
“Accordingly, I write to express our profound appreciation for the immense support and critical role played by the Nigerian Air Force in this regards,” Oyeyemi said. He hoped the strategic cooperation would be sustained to enhance the prospects of Safer Roads and Fuller Lives campaigns in the Country.
