The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Boboye Oyeyemi has confirmed that FRSC is neither recruiting nor doing any form of replacement as is being insinuated by some fraudsters outside, warning staff to desist from such rumour or face the wrath of the law in accordance with the FRSC Disciplinary Codes.
He stated this Monday while addressing staff of the National Headquarters at the Corps Marshal’s weekly Parade.
According to Bisi Kazeem Head Media Relations and Strategy in a statement issued in Abuja, Oyeyemi said the rumour of recruitment being spread by some fraudulent persons with intent to dupe unsuspecting members of the public must be ignored, saying any staff who is caught engaging in such act of rumour mongering will have himself to blame.
He stressed that there was no way FRSC could engage in recruitment exercise without following due process which includes wide publicity to give every Nigerian opportunity to participate in it.
“My attention was drawn to the rumour, and I want to put it directly to you, that FRSC is neither recruiting nor doing any form of replacement as people are insinuating outside,” he stated.
The Corps Marshal expressed appreciation to the Federal Government for its logistics provisions for the FRSC, noting that the 283 operational vehicles which the President commissioned for the Corps last month coupled with the ongoing construction of office accommodation in 5 states of the Federation demonstrates President Buhari’s passion for road safety.
He added that the empowerment has enabled the FRSC to carry out its responsibilities of making the roads safe and called on staff to rededicate themselves in order to reciprocate the gestures.
