The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Nigeria (FRSC), Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, has restated the commitment of the agency to restore integrity of the licensing system in the country.
Mr Oyeyemi stated this while declaring open the one day capacity building workshop organised by the Department of Motor Vehicle Administration of the FRSC for heads of Sector Driver’s License Centres held in Abuja.
He noted that the workshop was the fifth in the series organised in the last one for operators of the National Uniform Licensing Scheme (NULS) in order to improve their technical and administrative competence towards improved service delivery.
“FRSC owes the nation responsibility to sustain the values of transparency, selfless service and discipline which have been its hallmarks over the years. It was to sustain these values that we have continued to organise training and retraining programmes for the personnel operating the scheme at all levels to provide them opportunity to update their technical knowledge and administrative competence necessary for sustained improved service delivery,” he explained.
According to him, Nigeria deserves a credible national database on drivers and vehicles operating in the country.
Oyeyemi charged the heads of the Sector Driver’s License centres from the states of the federation to work closely with the state governments in order to quicken the process of restoring and protecting the integrity of driver’s licenses.
He appealed to state governments to continue to show commitment to the success of the scheme, saying the initiative was meant to create standards, uniformity and integrity of the licensing system of Nigeria.
