The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has decorated no fewer than 12 newly promoted officers with new ranks in Enugu State.
Decorating the officers in Enugu on Thursday, Mr Joseph Toby, the Sector Commander of FRSC Enugu State Command, said that “promotion comes only from God and no officer should see it as a right’’.
Toby urged the newly promoted and decorated officers to redouble their efforts and put in more sacrifice to uplift the Corps anywhere they found themselves.
He said: “I urge you to be dutiful and committed to attaining the mandate of the Corps. Be more dedicated to ensure you deliver daily on any task handed over to you.
“I thank the Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi and the FRSC management team for approving your promotion as well as other support they have been giving to this Command.”
The commander reminded the officers to pay due and devoted allegiance to constituted authorities within the Corps and other places they were posted for their daily assignments or duties.
Toby called on them to keep mentoring junior officers for them to be properly guided on issues of the road safety job as well as other germane matters of life.
Responding, Mr David Ekpekpe, who was recently promoted and decorated with the rank of Deputy Corps Commander (DCC), appreciated God, the Corps Marshal and FRSC management team for the promotion.
Ekpekpe, who spoke on behalf of the newly promoted officers, said: “I will not fail to thank our amiable Corps Marshal and the entire Corps management team for the confidence reposed in us.
“We are assuring the Corps Marshal, FRSC management team and the Enugu State Command that we will continue to give our best to the job.
“We will behold discipline and integrity even as we carry out our daily duties with dedication and commitment,” he said.
