The Federal Government wants the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) to strengthen collaborative efforts with all other security agencies to ensure successful conduct of the forthcoming General Elections.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, made the call in Abuja during a strategic meeting with management and senior officers of the FRSC, on Wednesday in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Represented by the Permanent Secretary, General Services Office, Mr. Maurice Mbaeri, the SGF, who noted that the FRSC has an important role to play during the election, assured that the government would continue to provide necessary support to enhance the operations of the corps.

Earlier, FRSC Corps Marshal Dauda Biu acknowledged the vital role of the corps in the electoral process.

Biu said that the strategic meeting would deliberate on deployment of personnel, vehicles and effective traffic control during the elections.

The Corps Marshal assured Nigerians that the FRSC would evolve new strategy to reduce road accidents for socio-economic development of the country.

“As the electorate go to the polls, I charge you all to remain good ambassadors of the Corps and demonstrate high supervisory oversight among staff under you.

“For election duties, Commanding Officers are to work with the Resident Electoral Commissioners and sister security agencies in their respective operational areas.

“On no account should a command or individual staff be seen to exhibit partisanship or untoward behaviour in all our official engagements during the General Elections,’’ he said.

Biu urged FRSC personnel to play excellent supportive roles during the elections.

“Our collaborative skills must be scaled up especially among security agencies, host communities, state governments, religious and other opinion leaders and critical stakeholders for mutual reinforcement.

“At this period of our national life and electioneering campaigns, greater level of moderation is recommended,’’ he said.
