The promotion of 3,628 marshals and the appointment of two Deputy Corps Marshals, (DCMs), have been announced by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC). Assistant Corps Marshal Bisi Kazeem, the corps’ spokesman, announced this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

“After carefully considering the Corps’ Establishment Committee’s resolution, the FRSC board approved the promotion of the 3,628 officers,” Mr. Kazeem reported. He instructed the recently appointed DCMs, Kayode Olagunju and Peter Kibo, to immediately go on terminal leave.

While Kibo served as the zone commanding officer in Lagos, Mr. Olagunju served as the commandant of the FRSC Academy in Udi, Enugu State.

According to him, out of the 3,628 officers promoted, 84 are deputy corps commanders who were elevated to the rank of corps commanders.

“211 Assistant Corps Commanders to the rank of Deputy Corps Commanders, 52 Chief Route Commanders to the rank of Assistant Corps Commanders and 716 Superintendent Route Commanders to the rank of Route Commanders,” he added.

Mr. Kazeem also said that 1,092 route commanders were elevated to the rank of superintendent route commanders.

In addition, 782 assistant route commanders were promoted to the position of deputy route commanders, while 691 deputy route commanders were promoted to the status of route commanders.

He claimed that the FRSC board chairman, Bukhari Bello, expressed satisfaction with the promotion process’ high degree of objectivity and transparency.

Mr. Bello challenged the promoted officers to recommit themselves and work harder to fulfill the Corps’ corporate objective. This, he stated, includes eliminating traffic accidents and fostering a safer driving environment throughout the nation.

He continued by saying that the commission’s effort to recognize brilliance, assiduity, and hard work included the exercise in promotions.

Dauda Biu, the corps marshal, thanked the newly promoted officers for their outstanding work, but stated that the Corps anticipated more from them.

Mr. Biu emphasized that every promotion entails more responsibility; so employees must give it their all, become more laser-focused, and carry out their tasks with zeal and commitment.

The corps marshal vowed to enhance the general welfare of all Corps members and urged them to uphold high moral standards and exert greater effort in fulfilling the Corps’ corporate mission.
