FRSC Takes U-Turn On Petrol Tankers

FRSC Corp Marshal Mr Boboye Oyeyemi

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has withdrawn its directive to ban all petroleum tanker drivers from embarking on night journeys from Monday, December 19, 2016.

Corp Marshal of the FRSC, Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, made this known on Monday in Abuja.

Oyeyemi said the decision was taken to ease the movement of goods across Nigeria during the yuletide.

He said the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation gave assurance of adequate supply of petroleum products during the period.

Oyeyemi also noted that despite the reversal, the FRSC would ensure that tanker drivers comply with the minimum safety standards.

The corp marshal further emphasised that the compliance would help to prevent over speeding and avoidable loss of lives.
