Boboye Oyeyemi, the newly appointed Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission, assumed duty in Abuja on Wednesday.
President Goodluck Jonathan had earlier that day approved Oyeyemi’s appointment to replace, Osita Chidoka, who is the new the Minister of Aviation.
Until his appointment, the new corps marshal, who was second to Chidoka in the FRSC hierarchy, was the Deputy Corps Marshal in charge of FRSC’s Motor Vehicle Administration.
Oyeyemi, who addressed the marshals, thanked the president for his appointment. He urged the officers and men of the commission to cooperate with him so that together they could sustain and even surpass achievements recorded under the leadership of Chidoka.
He expressed happiness that he was the first pioneer officer to be appointed as its chief executive since its inception in 1988.
