The federal government honors a new corps marshal and calls for a reduction in road accidents

Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, has challenged the newly appointed Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Shehu Mohammed, to take action to reduce road accidents.

Akume, who decorated the new Corps Marshal, said it was a sensitive position and so much was expected of the new leadership to reduce the number of accidents across the country.

Mohammed was appointed on May 20, 2024 and took over from former Corps Marshal Dauda Ali Biu.

Until his appointment, Mohammed was the Zonal Commander (ZCO) in charge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Niger State.

The SGF also urged the new Corps Marshal to use his wealth of experience to ensure common sense on the roads, noting that the FRSC was created to ensure road safety for all.

He said: “We wish you all the best in this new assignment because it is delicate and very important.”

He praised the FRSC for various initiatives aimed at reducing road accidents and fatalities.
