FRSC boss tasks commanders on performance evaluation
Corps Marshal and Chief Executive, Osita Chidoka on Wednesday tasked Sector Commanders drawn from the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory on the need for regular performance evaluation as yardstick for improved service delivery.
In a presentation titled, “Need for Resuscitation and Revival of Field patrol Activities” during a one-day strategic interactive session with the Commanding Officers, Chidoka said the United Nations’ adoption of road safety model in Nigeria had initiated a safe corridor project in the country.
The FRSC boss, according to a statement by the commission’s spokesman, Bisi Kazeem, the new project has thrown up numerous challenges in the area of the Corps redesigning its operational and administrative strategies in order to meet with the expectations of both the Nigerian motoring public and global mandates of the UN.
The Corps Marshal told the commanding officers, “The thrust of this meeting is for us to undertake a vigorous and holistic review of existential challenges facing the Corps, as the nation’s lead agency on road safety management and traffic administration and design realisable modalities towards addressing and reversing unfolding negative trends.”
A further analysis of the FRSC performance in the last one year, according to Chidoka, indicates an increase of seven per cent in road crashes and 15 per cent reduction in fatalities at the end 2012 first quarter.
He said the situation called for regular review and evaluation of the Corps’ policy initiatives/implementation, operational and administrative road map.
