By Leonard Egwuma
Mr Meshach Jatau, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Abia has advised the security officers and others who are highly placed in the society to get their driver’s licence.
Jatau gave the advice when Brig-Gen. Solomon Kumapayi, the 14 Brigade Commander, Garrison Command, Nigerian Army, Ohafia, paid him a courtesy visit in Umuahia on Wednesday.
The sector commander reiterated the importance of driver’s licence, saying that it would prevent them from certain eventualities or embarrassments.
He said, ” Most times the driver will be driving you, so your are not subjected to the possibility of being involved in a crash.
“But there are certain exigencies that might warrant that you drive yourself.
“If such happen and there’s an accident and your victim dies, the family of the victim might decide to go to court.
“If you have a driver’s licence, you will be charged for manslaughter, but if not, you will be charged for murder.That is what the law says.”
“Uniform men sometimes feel that they are immuned but we advise that they get driver’s licence because it is very important,” he appealed.
Jatau expressed happiness for the level of synergy between the Army and the Corps, adding that he had always told people that “the Nigerian Army is the best friend of FRSC.”
He described the synergy as quite rewarding and called for further collaborations in addressing the security challenges in Abia.
Earlier, Brig-Gen Kumapayi, who noted that he assumed duty as the brigade commander in March 2019, said the visit was to commend FRSC for its laudable activities in the state.
“Your men in Ohafia have been part and parcel of us.We want to solicit that the level of co-operation we are enjoying here should continue.
“Please feel free to continue to interact with us. We are ready to work with you. The Army is very keen in having a good working relationship with other security agencies,” he said.Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
