According to the statement, all personnel have been adequately briefed on the imperative of ensuring that motorists are made to drive in accordance with the stipulations of the Nigerian Highway Code and other regulations.
Dr Oyeyemi urged Christians to manifest love, care and obedience to established laws so as to portray the lessons of the season in a positive light.
He noted that the Corps will continue to sustain every arrangement already in place to ensure the safety of all road users, including aggressive public education campaigns and effective deployment of operational materials to enforce law and order.
He warned drivers to desist from all forms of overloading of vehicles either with persons, animals or with goods and excessive speeding among other bad road use behaviours.
While urging them to exhibit more tolerance and imbibe patience, the Corps Marshal further called on Nigerians to cooperate with law enforcement agents and ensure maximum compliance with all established rules so as to avoid the wrath of the law.
Dr Oyeyemi wishes all travelers a happy and safe celebration while urging them to call the FRSC call centre through the toll free line: 122 to report any emergencies.
