Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, the CEO and Corp Marshal of the FRSC, has reportedly flagged off a new awareness campaign tagged “Mobile Speed Control Campaign” to help reduce the increasing number of road crashes record on the popular Enugu-Onitsha highway. This new campaign is said to be specifically targeted at educating Nigerian motorists who ply the Enugu-Onitsha highway about the dangers of violating highway speed limits.
Fresh reports confirm that the FRSC has recently launched a new awareness campaign to reduce road crashes on Enugu-Onitsha expressway
During the flag-off ceremony of this new awareness campaign, reports claim that the FRSC Corp Marshal was represented by Mr Andrew Kumapayi, the Sector Commander of FRSC in Anambra State. Press reports noted that Mr Kumpayi said the aim of this new campaign is to properly equip drivers in the region with adequate knowledge of the dangers associated with driving at speeds of over 100kmph.
According to Mr Kumapayi, it is hazardous to drive above 100kmph, and it is also constitutionally wrong (illegal) to do so in Nigeria. He noted that over-speeding is undeniably one of the main causes of numerous road crashes being recorded by FRSC on the Enugu-Onitsha highway. Mr Kumapayi further revealed that in recent times, the FRSC has observed a shocking increase in the number of road crashes recorded in Awkuzu, Igbariam, Obosi, Odumodu, Ogbunike, Nteje, and Nkpor communities of Onitsha.
While the FRSC in Anambra State will be busy sensitizing motorists in the coming weeks, we will like to point out that FRSC Corps Marshal has also issued an earlier warning to all Nigerian motorists against over-speeding.
Below is a press video that confirms the earlier report.
