Cleric lauds FG for establishing FRSC


Onitsha (Anambra)- Ven. Paul Enwonwu, the Archdeacon of In-Land Town Anglican Archdeaconry, Onitsha, Anambra, has commended the Federal Government for establishing the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC).

Ewonwo said the commission had helped to reduce road crashes in the country since its inception 26 years ago.

He made he commendation on Sunday while delivering a homily at the special thanksgiving service of the FRSC Special Marshals in Anambra held at Immanuel Anglican Church, In-land Town, Onitsha.

“We have seen the difference the FRSC has done in saving millions of lives in the last 26 years when the commission was established.

“FRSC has created the notion for everybody to be responsible while on road as a driver or a commuter, as well as our children learning about safety on the road even as we have increased number of vehicles on our roads.

The FRSC Assistant Corps Commander in-charge of Special Marshals and Partnership in Anambra, Mr Gabriel Akinola, expressed the need to avoid alcohol before driving during the yuletide season.

“You should not celebrate to death by taking alcohol before embarking on any journey and make sure your vehicle is maintained; there is no room to manage any fault in a vehicle anymore,’’ Akinola said.

The Co-ordinator of Special Marshal and Partnership in Anambra, Mr Ben Osaka, said the thanksgiving was meant to commemorate 22 years of active service of FRSC Special Marshals without any problems.

“It goes beyond volunteering to serve; but God’s special protection for our members over these 22 years as volunteers who leave their work, families and pastimes to stand in the middle of the road.

“We will not relent as we prepare for the special yuletide patrol which will commence next week,’’ Osaka said. (NAN)
