The Federal University of Technology, Akure has been described as a blessing to the operations of the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC).The new Sector Commander, Ondo State FRSC, Commandant Edward Zamber made this known during a courtesy call on the Management of the University. Zamber said “The location of the Federal University of Technology, Akure is a blessing to our staff and our operations. In our sector, an officer must be a University graduate and we always encourage those with lower academic qualifications to upgrade themselves by availing themselves of opportunities and availability of higher institutions around them. We thank FUTA for contributing to the intellectual development of our staff. A University is meant to impact its environment. This you have been able to do to the FRSC over the years. Your impact has further developed our staff.”
The Sector Commander also called for synergy between the two institutions. According to him FUTA and FRSC need to collaborate in the area of training staff and all those who have access to driving on the proper use of Highway Codes.
He also promised his organization’s assistance in the area of obtaining and renewing of vehicle plate number and drivers’ license. He warned sternly against obtaining fake license from touts who parade themselves as staff of FRSC. “The only authentic way to obtain or renew driving license is to visit our offices nationwide. We have a procedure you can explore so as to beat those impersonating as FRSC staff” he added.
Zamber who shared the readiness of his team to interact with students so as to give them proper orientation on driving and related activities also promised to serve FUTA the more whenever the need arises.
