The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun says it would establish road safety clubs in secondary schools within the Idiroko area of the state.
Idiroko unit command of the FRSC said it had taken road safety club campaigns to schools, as part of the programme that the command intends to organise to educate students in 2022. It’s part of an initiative that was launched in the early 2000s by the corps, but which has been slowly implemented.
“The FRSC has written letters to various secondary schools and urged interested school administrators to invite us to come and establish a road safety club in their schools,” the unit commander Akinwunmi Olaluwoye said on Sunday.
Mr Olaluwoye said this was to teach the students about safety on highways right from secondary schools.
“In addition, we are also retraining students who had established a road safety club already in their schools,” he added.
He stated that the initiative was to create safety consciousness in the hearts of the students at a tender age, in order to save the corps from the current challenges confronting it.
