FRSC Commander Laments Poor Working Condition
The Federal Road Safety Corps, Imo State Command, has identified non-availability of ambulance and heavy-duty towing vehicles as major impediments to its operation in the state.
The Sector Commander, Mr. Kayode Aremu, stated this during the inauguration of Iwuanyanwu National Ambulance, an organisation that provides medical and humanitarian support to internally displaced persons.
Aremu attributed the upsurge in road crashes in the state to the recklessness of motorists.
He lamented that such motorists showed utter disregard for traffic rules and regulations.
The FRSC boss stated that lack of ambulance compelled the FRSC in the state to use patrol vehicles to rush accident victims to hospitals whenever there was an accident.
Represented by his Personal Assistant, Festus Emmanuel, Aremu commended the organisation for coming on board to partner the FRSC to save lives on the highways.
He, however, enjoined other well-meaning Nigerians to complement the efforts of the FRSC to save more lives.
In his remarks, the founder of the Iwuanyanwu National Ambulance, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, regretted that the country had lost many lives, especially through road accidents.
He said, “Nigeria records the highest rate of road accident and this project is meant to complement the efforts of the FRSC in saving lives, especially during these ‘ember’ months.
“There is need, therefore, to have good Nigerians and good volunteer groups to assist those who have a problem.”
