FRSC Corps Marshal Warns Officers Against Taking Bribe As Imoh Etuk Pulls Out Of Agency


The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, has warned officers of the corps to desist from collecting bribe from motorists.

Oyeyemi gave the warning in Lagos on Friday during the Pulling Out Parade of an Assistant Corps Marshal and the Zonal Commanding Officer, Lagos and Ogun, Mr Imoh Etuk.

The Corps Marshal, represented by the Zonal Commanding Officer RS 11 HQ Osogbo, Assistant Corps Marshal Godwin Ogagaoghene, said that collecting bribe from over-loaded vehicles could lead to accidents on the highway.

He also advised officers to support the Federal Government to achieve its aim of minimising road crashes in the country.

“Every officer that joins the service must have at the back of his or her mind that there will be a day of exit. What you do within the time of entry and exit matters because that is the legacy you are leaving behind.

“People will remember you for what you did and things you didn’t do. If you want to leave a good legacy, be diligent in your duties.

“The commission will remember him for the good legacy and team work he exhibited while in service and the good things he has done for Nigerians.

“We prayed that as he embarks on another phase of life, God will grant him success in all his endeavours,” he said.

Oyeyemi said life had no duplicate and advised drivers to follow the protocols of driving on the highway to save the lives of passengers.

The FRSC boss urged commercial drivers to drive with caution, especially during the end of the year, noting that speed killed.

Responding, Etuk thanked the Almighty God for seeing him through his assignments in FRSC.

He said that many of his colleagues had died while in service and appreciated the service for giving him a platform to serve humanity and rose to the level of an Assistant Corps Marshal.

He noted that being a core public education officer and zonal head of Lagos, he faced a lot of challenges with the public because of the attitude of Nigerians against enforcement of laws generally.
