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
