The Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Oyo State, Mrs Chukwura Uche, has urged Special Marshals in the state to promote the mandate of the commission.

In his remark, the new coordinator of the Special Marshal, Oyo State, Mr John Adegbotoluwa, pledged to put in his best to serve better through sincere coordination of all activities of the special marshals in the state.
Adegbotoluwa promised that the executives would key into the corps corporate strategic goals, engage their members on patrols, traffic control and public enlightenment to motor parks, mosques and churches.
He further said that strong synergy between the special marshals, regular marshals and other sister agencies would be promoted.
