Ahead of the July 16 Osun state governorship election, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has approved the deployment of 1,500 personnel and 35 vehicles.

In a statement issued by the Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) Bisi Kazeem, and made available to journalists on Monday in Abuja, Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi, said the deployment was part of preparations to ensure a hitch-free election.

He directed operatives of the corps drafted for the election to ensure effective collaboration with the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), including INEC and other security agencies in the enforcement of restrictions on vehicular movement.

“To ensure that the corps plays an effective role in the elections, 1500 personnel of the corps have been deployed.

“A total of 35 vehicles, including tow trucks and ambulances, to strengthen enforcement of restrictions during the entire process of the election too have been put in place,” he said.

He said that the operatives drafted to cover the election had equally been mandated to clear obstructions from the roads, and urged them to carry out rescue operations in case of emergencies and maintain orderliness at the polling centres.

Mr Oyeyemi, however, warned the deployed personnel to exhibit the highest sense of professionalism, ingenuity, as well as to avoid any situation that could lead to abuse of the rights of electorates during the exercise.
