The NYSC FCT Secretariat and the Federal Road Safety Corps have agreed to sustain the existing collaboration between the two government agencies because of the benefits the public derive from it. This Led the FCT NYSC Coordinator, Alhaji Suleiman Abdul to pay a courtesy call on the FRSC FCT Sector Commander, Asst. Corps Marshal Ayuba Wobin Gora at the FRSC FCT office, Wuse-Abuja.
The Coordinator in his remark noted with appreciation the mentorship role officers of the FRSC are playing in their relationship with the corps members especially the Road Safety Club members.
The NYSC FCT Boss assured the Sector Commander of his unalloyed cooperation during his tenure of office; he also promised that the NYSC FCT Secretariat is open to any collaboration that will benefit the two agencies as well as the public.
Responding, the Sector Commander thanked the Coordinator for the visit. He described NYSC as the parent of the FRSC because majority of the pioneer staff of the FRSC were corps members recruited directly from the camp. Asst. Corps Marshal Wobin said the collaboration with NYSC is beneficial to all and must be sustained.
The FRSC boss described the NYSC FCT Road Safety Club as highly efficient and viable. He praised the corps members for putting in their time, effort with zeal and that they are ready to learn.
The Commander said the Road safety club in conjunction with the Special Marshals are already involved in organizing quiz competitions on road safety for secondary schools in the FCT but promised to consider extending the quiz competition to corps members during orientation courses as requested by the Coordinator. He further stated that the corps is willing, if permitted to come to the NYSC FCT Secretariat to give members of staff road safety education.
The visit had in attendance top management personnel of the FRSC and the NYSC
