Oyeyemi stated this at the Governor’s Lodge, Onitsha when he called on Governor Willie Obiano to chart an understanding of measures to the improved traffic situation in the state during the Christmas and new year celebration.
FRSC boss who said that the visit is the sixth exchange of brief between the Federal Road Safety Corps and the Anambra State government, which he stressed has yielded desired results, assured that they will relocate to Head Bridge, Onitsha to ensure that nobody passes the night on the bridge.
He explained that the briefing is usually to assess the traffic situation and draw joint implementation, pointing out that Anambra State government has sustained provision of logistics, assuring that the directives of the Governor will be implemented until the end of Christmas and New Year.
