The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has hinged the poor traffic management in the country on inadequate manpower in the federal government agency.
The commission said the paucity of personnel accounted for the increasing carnage on Nigerian roads since its men could not meet the global deploymentÂ standard in all highways where road users drive recklessly.
The FRSC Zonal Commanding Officer in charge of Ekiti, Kogi and Kwara States, Assistant Corps Marshall Amanche Nwaka, said this during a courtesy visit to Ado EkitiÂ on Wednesday.
Nwaka applauded the inter-agency synergy between the FRSC and the Ekiti State Traffic Management Agency (EKSTMA), saying this has brought about the improvement in traffic management in the state.
The zonal commander also lauded Governor Ayodele Fayose for placing high premium on rehabilitation of roads, describing the huge investment in road infrastructure as a veritable weapon to curtail accidents and deaths on the roads.
