From Salisu Maradun, Gusau
The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), has warned that any of its staff caught receiving bribe or any act that is capable of tarnishing the image of the commission will face dismissal.
It also urged the officers and men of the corps to remain loyal.
The zonal commanding officer in charge of Sokoto, Kebi and Zamfara, Mr. Kayode, made the disclosure in Gusau, capital of Zamfara when he spoke to journalists.
The zonal commanding officer who was in the state for a one day official engagement explained that henceforth the organisation will not take it light against anyone caught on the road taking bribe from motorists, and that any action taken against him or her should not blame anybody but himself.
According to him, the organisation has for long been known with honesty sincerity and transparency which is one of the reasons the public, particularly motorists have confidence in them.
Mr. Kayode while expressing his satisfaction with the way and manner with which the Zamfara command discharges its constitutional duties, also called on the drivers especially those driving without license to ensure they obtained their own to avoid problems, adding that no driver has the gut to complain over license as in Zamfara alone” we have over 200 unclaimed licenses that are not yet be collected by the owners, and others are currently being produced to meet the demands of the people. We don’t want a situation whereby a driver will complain about license that is not an excuse.”\
Speaking further Mr. Kayode called on the men of the command of the zone to be public-friendly as that will help them interact confidently with the public and by extension create good relationships between them.
“Ï am also warning you to avoid taking unnecessary loan because we understand that is one of the contributing factors that will not allow you to take care of yourself and your family, and that is why we came up with a new system that henceforth, any one of you who must take such loan must write through the headquarters which will now see the worthiness of the loan.”
