Some senior military officers, Politicians, road users have criticized the present leadership of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) for the promotion of an Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) to the rank of Deputy Corps Marshal (DCM) and new Corps Commanders (CC) to the rank of Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) while excluding the Northern states in the country from the development.
It could be recalled that the Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO), ACM Bisi Kazeem, who had disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, added that 26 Deputy Corps Commanders (DCC) were also promoted to the rank of Corps Commander (CC).
The northerners while speaking to newsmen on the promotion in Abuja at the weekend, Gen. Yakubu Mohammed, Northern Youth Leaders Forum and members of the Arewa Consultative Forum and some civil society groups Ibrahima Kankari and Abdulazeez Yar’adua said that the approval which came at the end of the meeting of the Commission on 12 April 2021 which ratified the resolution of the Establishment Committee was done with misconception and hatred for the region.
They called on the leadership of the FRSC to reverse the promotion and do the right thing to avoid any action.
The group called on President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint a capable hand that would drive the growth of the corps in line with global best practice.
According to the FRSC in a statement: “ACM Victor Nwokolo becomes DCM, to represent the South Eastern Zone, following the retirement of DCM Kenneth Nwaegbe.
“Three other ACMs, who were also promoted with the mandate to proceed on terminal leave with immediate effect are ACM Kehinde Adeleye in charge of Policy, Research and Statistics Department at the national headquarters,
“ACM Godwin O. Ogagaoghene, the Zonal Commanding Officer in charge of Benin Zonal Command, as well as ACM Edward A. Zamber, the Zonal Commanding Officer in charge of Yola Zonal Command, ” he said.
Kazeem also gave the names of the nine CC promoted to ACM as CC Kumapayi Ayodele who currently is the Sector Commander in Anambra, CC Wobin Gora, Sector Commander FCT and CC Chidi Nkwonta, Sector Commander, Bayelsa.
“CC Adetunji Adegoke, the Deputy Corps Secretary at the National Headquarters, Abuja, and CC Godwin Omiko, Deputy Commandant, FRSC Command and Staff College, Bayelsa.
The Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, equally congratulated the newly elevated officers for their excellent performances during the exercise, noting that every promotion comes with greater responsibilities; while he admonished those who were not promoted to keep faith alive and hope for the best as opportunities still abound in the future.
According to Mohammed who spoke on behalf of the northern groups,  the FRSC must do what is right otherwise we will call for urgent action against this lopsided promotion
