Boboye Oyeyemi, corps marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), says no driver should transport corps members leaving orientation camp from 6pm.
He gave the warning during the FRSC end-of-the-year meeting with transport union stakeholders, in Abuja, on Tuesday.
The meeting is one of the programmes done in preparation for the end of the year activities. It particularly looks at how vehicular accidents can be reduced during the festive periods.
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members for Batch C Stream II had resumed orientation camps on November 28 and would end December 19.
Boboye said any driver that transports the corps members from 6pm above, will face serious consequences.
“No transport union should convey any corp member and those leaving the orientation camp on Thursday, December 19, 2019 from 6pm. Any vehicle that violates this order will be dealt with seriously, as the FRSC is committed to the safety of lives and properties,” he said.
“I want to urge the state coordinators of different NYSC orientation camps to send signals to the corps members to be aware of the information. This has become necessary to address road accidents and crashes that occur during the festive periods across the country. The safety of the youths, goods and Nigerians’ lives at large is our major concern.”
The FRSC also boss urged corps members to use motor parks while boarding vehicles. He urged them to avoid roadside vehicles for security reasons.
He called on the transporters to reduce prices of transportation fares for corps members in order to make it affordable for them.
“This is the main reason why you see corps members boarding vehicles at night and, sometimes, on the roadside,” he said.
“The belief is that the prices of transportation would reduce at night by boarding at the roadside. This is not safe at all.”
In reaction, Yusuf Adeniyi, national secretary, Road Transport Employer’s Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), said the directive will be complied with, adding that the transportation fare will be reduces for corps members during the period.
“We will direct all the offices nationwide to bring down the prices and provide good vehicles for their safety,” he said.

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.
Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
