The Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong, has assured that his administration will continue to develop transport infrastructures as well as ensure the completion of the Federal Road Safety Training School in Shendam so as to guarantee that the personnel have a conducive environment for manpower development.
The governor stated this when he visited the headquarters of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Abuja to witness the decoration of Mr Hygenus Fuomsuk to his new rank of Deputy Corps Marshal (DCM).
Lalong, who also participated in decorating the new DCM, said he was glad to witness the elevation of Fuomsuk, whom he described as “a committed officer that has served diligently over the years,” adding that, “an elevation like this is an opportunity to serve Nigeria and be patriotic.”
Although, the new DCM’s appointment is to represent the North Central Zone in the FRSC, the governor, however, urged him to “look beyond that zone to serve with dignity and treat everyone with respect, irrespective of where they come from. Nigeria is your first constituency.”
He also used the opportunity to call on the Federal Road Safety Corps to continue to work hard in assisting the fight against COVID-19 pandemic by enforcing transportation guidelines.
Earlier, Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi said the promotion of DCM Fuomsuk and others were well-deserved and merited because of their track record of loyalty and dedication to duty.
He appreciated Governor Lalong for the support he has continued to give the FRSC, particularly his recent intervention towards the completion of the FRSC Training School in Shendam, which he said will be completed before the end of the year.
Also decorated at the brief event was DCM Samule Obayomi, from Kogi State, who is proceeding on retirement leave.
