…says traffic control in Anambra should not be left for the FRSC alon
The Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Awka, Anambra State has disclosed its readiness to partner with Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in traffic management and enlightenments in the state.
Bishop of the church, Rt. Rev. Moses Nwakanma who disclosed this during a visit to the Command said traffic control in a state like Anambra should not be left for the FRSC alone to handle.
Nwakanma who was recently consecrated, following creation of Awka Diocese, described himself as a member of the FRSC family, having been a Special Marshal, a position he said offered him opportunity to assist in traffic control.
He informed the Corps of the forthcoming inauguration of the diocese as well as his enthronement as pioneer Bishop of the diocese on April 27, 2023 by Archbishop of Enugu, Most Rev. Barr. C. N. Edeh, soliciting for its presence to assist in traffic control during the event.
Responding, Sector Commander, FRSC Adeoye Irelewuyi, represented by Acting Head of Operations, Georgina Omeke thanked the prelate and his team for the visit, assuring them of cordial working relationship.
He informed the Bishop and his team of recent creation of units across the 21 local government areas of the State with sole aim of public awareness and enlightenments of the Corps programmes.
“Special Marshal in Anambra has a strong pillar as compared to other states. We have an office in Awka and another one coming up in Nteje courtesy of Special Marshal.
“I’m delighted that you’re part of us and appreciate all your efforts ts. Last three years, FRSC, in line with its functions, the management created a unit in all local governments across the state with one Officer and one Special Marshall.
“The primary reason for creating the units is for public enlightenments and advocacy in markets, churches and other public facilities. I’m giving you assurance we’re going to partner with you and your church.”
Highpoint of the visit was presentation of scriptural materials, including a copy of the holy bible to the FRSC boss by Bishop Nwakamma.
