The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has introduced a “Roll of Dishonour” to tackle corruption among its personnel.
FRSC Zonal Commanding Officer, Kingsley Agomoh, made this known when he declared open the FRSC zonal RS7 quarter retreat in Abuja on Saturday.
Mr. Agomoh said that the corps had been battling with cases of corrupt personnel who tarnish the image of the commission, saying the initiative is to eliminate corrupt practices during patrol.
The FRSC official said the measures adopted would ensure that the integrity of the agency was not tarnished
He said that the Roll of Dishonour is aimed at publicising any staff whose appointment was terminated because of extortion and malpractice.
“We have in the past done everything to stem corruption from the FRSC to make it a world class organisation,” he said.
“To let people know that we don’t tolerate unwholesome behaviour of our men on duty surveillance has been carried out on the FRSC personnel while on duty on the roads.
“We have discovered how to tackle the menace of corruption. The role of dishonour is a zonal initiative where we are going to have a board that will have corrupt officers name written.
“So, if you are caught for any act of compromise on the roads and you have gone through the trial and found wanting even after appeal and running through the course your name will appear.”
Agomoh said that even when such official is sacked his name would remain on the board in all unit and zonal commands to serve as deterrent for others.
He added that the board would have the culprit’s name, the offence committed and his state of origin.
“This is so that if tomorrow your child or relative walks into the office and sees your name they will know why you were terminated from the FRSC.
“So, in the morning as our men are going on patrol they will see the board and ask themselves, do I want my name to be here?
“Of course the answer is no, so they will conduct themselves well,” he said.
He urged all the commands to replicate the Roll of Dishonour Board in their respective commands.
