The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has commended the Ekiti State House of Assembly for passing the State Traffic Management Law.
It noted that the law had impacted positively on traffic control and management.
Zonal Commanding Officer in charge of Kwara, Kogi and Ekiti States, Dr A. A. Nwaka gave the commendation during a courtesy visit to the Ekiti State House of Assembly in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday.
Nwaka, who was accompanied to the assembly by the Ekiti State Sector Commander, Mr Ismaila Kugu, described the visit as purpose driven.
He expressed gratitude to Governor, Ayodele Fayose, for his drive toward achieving an overall development in Ekiti State.
The FRSC official noted that the networks of roads in state were now better than what it used to be in the past.
He called for synergy between the state government and the corps toward reducing accidents on Ekiti roads.
Speaker of the Assembly, Kola Oluwawole, charged the commission to step up their sensitization programme on proper usage of roads and penalties that awaited offenders.
He said the need to ensure sanity on Ekiti roads necessitated the passage of the law and charged the FRSC officers to always discharge their duties without fear or favour.
