With the purported ouster of the present Corps Marshal & Chief
Executive of the Federal Road Safety Commission in Nigeria, we the concerned
Nigerian citizens of the United States of America plead with the Federal
Government of Nigeria to put a Squared peg in a square hole.
Carnage on our roads has
reached an un-acceptable level. The Drivers Licenses and Plate
Numbering system has not helped reduced carnage on these roads
in any form. It has only served as ID cards and data
Loss of lives witnessed and
asserted to by himself the outgoing Corps Marshal (CM) of FRSC
in the past years is unbearable. The people that could have been
useful for their families and maybe their immediate environments
were wasted on the roads due to carelessness by either
themselves or other motorists due to lack of Road education and
caution. Most importantly , the compromising nature of the Road
Marshals themselves on those roads are promoting recklessness
and uncared attitudes of both commercial and private drivers.
