The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun is to commence a special patrol between Aug. 30 to Sept. 6 to enhance free flow of traffic during the Sallah festivities.
The Sector Commander of FRSC in the state, Mr Clement Oladele, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday that the exercise would ensure safety of lives and reduce gridlocks across the state.
NAN reports that the Muslim faithful would be celebrating the Eid-kabir on Sept. 1 and Sept. 2 across the country.
According to Oladele, the FRSC would mobilise its personnel in ensuring that people travelling to different destinations across the state do not encounter hindrances.
”We are going to join hands together to ensure that minimum obstructions were experienced across all principal corridors of the state.
”The personnel would be deployed to areas like Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, Abeokuta, Sagamu, Ijebu-Ode, Odegbolu, Ogunmakin, Itori and Ota to curb excesses of drivers and reduce crashes to its barest level,” he said.
Oladele, therefore, implored motorists to cooperate with the FRSC officials and adhere strictly to all the traffic regulations.
