Buhari approves funds for FRSC over properties damaged during #EndSARS protests



Due to the damage on properties wrought by the #EndSARS protests in October 2020, President Muhammadu Buhari has signed an approval for the disbursement of intervention funds to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

The intervention funds are meant for the replacement of the FRSC fleets and formations damaged during the protests.

This was disclosed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, (SGF), Boss Mustapha, during the inspection of the newly acquired operational vehicles and tow trucks for the FRSC on Thursday, April 22, in Abuja.

According to Mustapha, this was to ensure the effective enforcement of road traffic regulations.

“The Federal Government acknowledges the contribution of the FRSC to the reduction in Road Traffic Crashes (RTC) and facilities on the nation’s highways.
