The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has lauded the management of Cakasa Nigeria Limited for the donation of a new office complex for its operations in Ikeja, Lagos.

Deputy corps commander sector and sector  head of operation for FRSC in Lagos, Lucas Oguntade, who inaugurated the project appreciated Cakasa for the investment saying it would go a long way in boosting staff morale and dedication to road safety in Lagos and the country at large.

Oguntade said safety should be everybody’s business and tasked corporate organisations to partner with the agency in ensuring safety on the nation’s roads and highways.

“It is when we have a safe environment that  businesses can thrive; it is when we have drivers that are safety conscious and roads that are safe that  businesses can be secured and the company can continue to survive and make profits. The task to end fatality on our roads should be collective and what Cakasa has done will encourage better output from officers for safe monitoring and in reducing road accidents in the country,” he said. 

Unit Commander RS2.16 for Ikeja FRSC, Emma Fekoya said until the company intervened and donated the office space, the unit was managing with other corps members at the Ojodu/Berger office complex.

“The Cakasa special marshal has made our job easier with this donation. You took not only your own space to give us, but invested in refurbishing it.

“The office is for the FRSC  Ikeja command corps for their operations because until now they never had their own office space, but were managing a space at Ojodu. We saw this an an opportunity to also create a safe environment for the people who have dedicated their lives to the maintenance of safe roads,” he said.
