Foundation begins anti-graft sensitisation for FRSC cadets, trainees
The Akin Fadeyi Foundation (AFF) and Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), with support from the MacArthur Foundation, have commenced a series of planned sensitisation workshops across FRSC training centres.
The first set of these anti-corruption training was launched at FRSC Academy, Udi, Enugu State, and the Marshal Inspectorate Training School, Owa-Alero, Delta State.
At both locations, over 500 cadets and trainees had the opportunity to engage with fundamental information on anti-corruption, accountability, and effective leadership as a crucial launching pad in their careers at the Corps.
According to Executive Director, AFF, Mr. Akin Fadeyi, the project is in line with the foundation’s behavioural change objectives, aimed at an infusion of the core values of transparency and integrity-driven service delivery in newly recruited FRSC cadets and trainees.
He said the training also supports the organisation’s strategic agenda to deepen its work with the FRSC in a partnership that commenced in 2019 with the adoption of the FlagIt app by the Corps.
In his address, FRSC Corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, represented by Abah Charity Ojoma, said: “Over the years, the leadership of the corps has demonstrated zero tolerance for corruption in the system through rigorous policy formulation and implementation processes, dynamic and result oriented operational activities and above all, continuous monitoring, surveillance and evaluation procedures in line with established processes, procedures and services.”
