Speaking during the induction of the newly posted Officers at the academy, the Corps Marshal charged them in a paper titled, ‘ Ethics, Commitment, Patriotism and Service Delivery’ to always be mindful of the fact that the FRSC as a public organisation with commitment to eradicate road traffic crashes through well defined strategies, and therefore, cannot afford to fail in its responsibilities.
Oyeyemi said: “As members of the Corps, we must make optimal contributions to its growth and development which are predicated on public approval of quality of service delivery”
He called on the newly redeployed Commandant and other staff of the academy to work within the ambit of the regulations guiding their performance.
According to him, “Those who have been charged with leadership responsibilities must lead and guide their wards well within the regulations while the followers must also comport themselves well to achieve the desired symmetry of overall accomplishment. Anything short of these would result to an aberration capable of tarnishing the hard earned reputation of the Corps and we cannot allow this to happen”
