The Media Relations and Strategy of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Mr. Bisi Kazeem, has revealed that some FRSC officials who were allegedly drunk while on duty have been recalled for investigation and appropriate discipline if found guilty.
We reported the incident yesterday and posted photos of the affected officers.
A press release signed by Kazeem states:
“Our attention has been drawn to the recent pictures of the alleged drunken state of personnel of the FRSC during working hours and in uniform, making rounds on blogs, online and conventional media.
“The Corps wishes to assure Nigerians that FRSC remains an organisation that does not condone indiscipline on the part of its workforce, or cover up for their inadequacies, whether officers or other ranks (Marshals).
“The alleged Marshals whose photographs were taken at Tarzan junction, close to Onitsha, have been identified as operatives of the Corps from Nteje Unit Command under the Anambra State Sector Command.
“The Marshals were deployed for traffic control and monitoring for the Easter Special Patrol at Tarzan junction close to Onitsha.
“Anambra State Sector Command, Awka, is the Command that supervises the affairs of the Nteje Unit where they served on the directive of the Corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, who abhors indiscipline in all ramifications.
“They have been recalled for administrative and disciplinary action,
“As soon as the administrative panel dispenses with their case, concerned Nigerians will be notified of the appropriate disciplinary actions taken on them.”
