As part of its Ember month’s campaign, the Plateau Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has embarked on road safety campaign in churches.
FRSC Sector Commander in Plateau, Mrs Pat Emoerdi, addressed worshipers on Sunday at St. Finbar’s Catholic Church, Rayfield, Jos.
She said the church service was organised to commemorate the 2018 African Road Safety and World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
The week-long event has the theme: “Roads Have Stories’’.
According to Emoerdi, the need for a safer highway for all road users cannot be overemphasised, as safety is everybody’s business.
“We wish to seize this opportunity to sensitise all of us gathered in this church on the need to be very conscious while plying highways during this ember months.
“Christmas is already knocking. This is the season that comes with high vehicular movements with many motorists, particular commercial drivers rushing just to embark on many trips in the name of making more money.
