Delta State Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Asaba, Corps Commander, Mr Ibrahim Abubakar, has vowed to do everything within his capacity to reduce the level of road accident in the state.

Abubakar made the vow while inaugurating a new building, housing the Agbor Unit Command at Alihame in Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State.

According to him, “I will come to everyone’s level to ensure that we make progress in this road safety business. Road safety is everybody’s duty. We must continue to protect ourselves and loved ones from accidents on the highways.”

While saying that massive and strategic enlightenment programmes would soon be engaged by the command across the state, he called on members of Special Marshall and related groups not to relent in their efforts of grassroot sensitization across Ika locality and environ.

The sector commander noted that there was need to seek divine intervention in a bid to curb mishap on the road.

“Since my assumption of duty in this state command on December 17 ,2021 till date, we have recorded over 39 road accidents. This is so alarming and uncalled for.

“We need to go to God in fasting and prayer to lead us through, because without God, we are nothing. This should be our central message,” he stated.

In her remarks, the Agbor Unit Commander, Assistant Corps Commander, M.P Isonguyo, observed that the unit command was suffering from mechanical mobility to curb road accidents. 

She stated that the officers of the command were doing well, adding that none of them was on leave but that they needed steadier mobilities.
