The

 to a more decisive measure to enforce the installment
of Speed Limiting Devices on vehicles by organizing a Special Intervention
Patrol (SIP) along critical corridors from 7 November to 13 November 2016.

According
to a media statement by Bisi Kazeem, the Head, Media Relations and Strategy of
the Corps,
Corps Marshal of FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi has directed that the
Special Intervention Patrol be used to impress on field commands to sustain the
enforcement drive on Speed Limiting Device Installation in Commercial Vehicles,
continue the sensitization exercise of the 2016 Ember Months campaign, and to
reduce road traffic crashes caused by Overloading and Over speeding.
While
all field Command operatives are to be involved in the Special Intervention
Patrol, Commanding Officers are to ensure that special attention is given to
all crash-prone areas within their jurisdictions, as well as to ensure that
Officers, Marshals and Special Marshals are adequately mobilized in readiness
to fully participate in the exercise.
The selected corridors that are
considered as flashpoints for overloading infractions are:
Kaduna-Abuja-Lokoja-Okene route, Garaku-Akwanga-NasarawaEggon-Lafia-Makurdi
route, Funtua-Tsafe-Gusau-Sokoto route, Lagos-Ogere-Ogunmakin-Ibadan route,

route, and Jebba-Olooru-Bode Saadu route.

In a separate development, Corps
Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi has enjoined staff across the country to embrace the modernization
programs being put in place by the Management of the Corps to facilitate steady
growth and development of the organization.
He stated this in Makurdi, Benue

capacity development effective implementation of the various policies could run
into a hitch.

administration and
management created by the Federal Government in 1988.
