As a way of ensuring safety on our roads during the Ember months, the Federal Road Safety Corps and the Imo Civil Guard have carried out a joint capacity building exercise for improved collaboration and operational efficiency towards end of the 2019 road safety campaign.

Speaking at the weeklong exercise, the Sector Commander, Imo State Command of the FRSC, Commander Francis Udoma, commended the officers of the two sister agencies in attendance for participating in the exercise. He charged them to go back to their various units and impact on their subordinates what they were thought.

The Sector Commander observed that there will be influx of travelers into the state following the closure of the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Enugu, which he said will affect traffic flow within the state capital, as more of the travelers are expected to travel via the Sam Mbakwe Airport. “This therefore is an opportunity for you to give the government and the people the avenue to access you positively”, the Commander reminded the officers.

“I therefore encourage you to implore your added experience and skills to better the administration of traffic in the state, since you have been equipped with all it takes to compete favourably with other traffic organizations in the state and beyond”, the Sector Commander challenged the trainees.

Also speaking, the Acting Commandant General, Imo Civil Guard Corps, Prince Martins Ekeh, Ph.D eulogized the various resource persons for impacting on the participating officers through intensive sensitization. He used the opportunity to appreciate the organizers of the programme for coming up with such a thoughtful vision.

Prince Ekeh assured that the Imo Civil Guard Corps will continue to work towards sustaining the synergy and good working relationship between the two agencies, which he disclosed has lasted for over 15 years.
