Federal Safety Commission (FRSC), Anambra State Command has said that road crashes have reduced to a barest minimum in the state.
The State Sector Commander, Hyginus Omege who disclosed this in public lecture recently organized by the agency at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, attributed the successes to removal of what he termed “obstructions and abandoned vehicles at the road side”.
He further explained that the command has embarked on public enlightenment campaign at the nooks and crannies of the state with a view to educating road users, even as he noted that offenders of road traffic laws have decreased as well.
According to Omeje, in-line with this, FRSC clubs in the secondary Schools in Anambra state has increased from 752 in 2012 to 1356 in 2013 and 3014 as at now; while it primary school counterparts which were 120 in 2012, rose to 563 in 2013 and 619 as at now.
The Sector commander while appealing to Anambra state government to assist them with heavy duty tow trucks for decongesting abandoned trucks along Enugu/Onitsha and Onitsha/Owerri expressway, also implored the government to aide in renovating its dilapidated unit command.
Also speaking, Corps Marshal Osita Chidioka, represented by Zonal Commanding Officer, RS5 Benin-City, Mr. Nseobong Akpabio advised motorists and motorcyclists to abide by the traffic rules which he said were geared towards safeguard lives and properties.
On his part, Governor Willie Obiano who was represented at the occasion by his Deputy, Dr. Nkem Okeke pledged to donate a pick-up truck to the command; but also directed them to channel other requests in writing for prompt consideration, assuring that the government would continue to partner with them to forestall road accidents.
