The Federal Road Safety Commission said on Tuesday that it has increased its engagement with the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission and the Department of State Services to eliminate bribery and corruption amongst its officers.
The commission’ s Corps Marshal , Boboye Oyeyemi , said this in a statement marking the 32 nd anniversary of the commission .
He bemoaned the bribery and corruption amongst officers of the commission, regretting that they were eroding the trust and confidence of the public in its activities.
He said , “ Bribery and corruption erode the trust that the public has in us to act in their best interest because it diminishes the quality of our services , thus preventing the natural laws of the economy from functioning freely as it should and the entire society suffers . A road safety management approach infested with bribery and corruption would , therefore , retard the nation ’ s growth. ”
“ Although the Corps has launched a boisterous internal fight against the twin evil , she has also entered into purposeful synergy with the ICPC and the DSS on surveillance activities. ”
The FRSC boss said the commission was harnessing technological innovations to making its operations more effective .
He appreciated the men of the commission while respecting the memories of those who paid the supreme price in the course of duty .
