FRSC urges partnership with stakeholders to reduce road accidents

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Katsina State Sector Command, has urged all stakeholders to partner with the corps in efforts to reduce the high rate of accidents on the highways.

 

The Sector Commander, Mr Ali Tanimu, made the call in Katsina on Wednesday at the 2020 World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Crash Victims.

 

Tanimu described the task of curtailing road crashes as herculean, saying that it could, nonetheless, be accomplished with the support of all stakeholders.

 

He stressed all the citizens should be involved in the designed efforts to reduce road accidents and the attendant deaths.

 

“It is when these have been accomplished that it can be said that the memory of the departed souls is truly preserved.

 

“The FRSC is aware that those deceased were our fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, neighbours and friends.

 

“Those who sustained various degrees of injury are equally remembered and they are wished speedy recovery,” he said.

 

The sector commander said that prayers to God to reduce the rate of road accidents would be conducted in mosques and churches across the state on Nov. 13 and Nov. 15, respectively.

 

Tanimu called on the stakeholders to continue to support accident victims with the First Aid, which they needed during road accidents.

 

He also urged road users to continue to abide by traffic rules and regulations to reduce the rate of accidents on the highways.
