FRSC decorates 42 officers, marshals in Ondo State



The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ondo State Command, on Monday, decorated no fewer than 42 newly promoted officers and marshals in the state.

Decorating the officers and marshals, Mr Ezekiel SonAllah, FRSC State Sector Commander, said that every one who sat for the promotion examination were promoted.

SonAllah, who explained that the promotion was as a result of the officers’ dedication and hardwork, charged them to see the new ranks as a call to greater duty.

He said that four Assistant Corps Commanders were promoted to Deputy Corps Commanders, one Chief Route Commander was promoted to Assistant Corps Commander while six Superintendent Route Commanders were promoted to Chief Route Commanders.

He added that Six Route Commanders were promoted to Superintendent Route Commanders, five Deputy Route Commanders were promoted to Route Commanders and five Assistant Route Commanders were promoted to Deputy Route Commanders.

The sector commander said that 15 junior officers, comprising eight Marshal Inspectors and seven Road Marshal Assistants, were promoted as well.

SonAllah, who appreciated the Corps Marshal for the promotion of the newly promoted officers and marshals, urged the promoted officers to redouble their commitment to work.

“I am appealing to the newly promoted officers and marshals to be conscious that the reward for hardwork is more work and to whom much is given, much is expected.

“I am expecting that the new ranks should spur you on to greater productivity,” he said.

SonAllah also used the occasion to call on motorists to always be safety conscious on the highway, saying that the command was committed to zero crash in 2023.

Mr Emmanuel Eje, who was promoted from Assistant Corp Commander to Deputy Corps Commander, who spoke on behalf of others, appreciated the Corps Marshal for the elevation.

He said that the new rank would spur him and his colleagues to greater commitment to discharge their duties.

“This promotion is a welcome development and it came at a time everybody had lost hope because, over time, we had been told that there was no vacancy.

”But the new Corps Marshal has done it and the elusive vacancy has been found.With this new rank, it will give me more energy to redouble my commitment and become more dedicated to the corps,” he said.

Also speaking, Idowu Akeredolu, who was promoted from Assistant Route Commander to Deputy Route Commander, promised to discharge his duties responsibly and deligently to the public and the corps as whole.

Oba Ajibade Ogunoye, the Olowo of Owo, who was a special guest at the occasion, prayed for the FRSC and the state command in particular.

He also charged the corps members to continue to discharge their duties responsibly.

“The job of FRSC is important to Nigeria because, over time, before the establishment of the corps, Nigerians have experienced a lot of carnage on our roads.

“But FRSC has been able to reduce the carnage drastically. So , it has become imperative for the corps to continue to protect lives and properties of Nigerians on the highways,” he said.
