Commandant of the National Defence College Abuja, Rear Admiral Samuel Ilesanmi Alade has assured the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) of the commitment of the College to providing strategic leadership training for senior officers of the FRSC.

Rear Admiral Alade gave the assurance today while on courtesy visit to the FRSC National Headquarters Abuja, where he was received by the Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeemi.

According to Bisi Kazeem, Head, Media Relations and Strategy, FRSC, the Commandant said the Defence College and the FRSC have always enjoyed cordial relationship, stressing that in sustaining the collaboration, the College would be prepared to contribute to the human capacity development of the FRSC by organising a strategic leadership training that would take care of the needs of the senior officers.

While acknowledging the contributions made by some of the FRSC participants who passed through the College, the Commandant noted that the inputs of such participants have been useful in moving the Institution forward.. Admiral Alade who described the FRSC as a major stakeholder of the Defence College, stated that having taken over as the new Commandant of the College last month, he saw the need to pay the courtesy visit on the Corps Marshal to familiarise himself with the operations of the FRSC and to restate his commitment to sustaining the existing collaboration between the two organisations.

“I want to assure you that the National Defence College is prepared to assist the FRSC in developing its staff capacity by increasing its quota of student intakes,” he stated.

“We are also equally committed to organising a training programme that would cover such areas as peacekeeping and strategic management for specific set of officers.

“Let me also assure you that the College will continue to support the FRSC in other areas of training for the attainment of national safety and security,” he added.

Remarking, the Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi while expressing appreciation to the Commandant for the visit, congratulated him on his appointment, assuring him of the collaboration of the FRSC to make him succeed in his assignment.

Oyeyemi further explained that the FRSC requires more slots in the College’s student intakes, noting that greater number of officers who could have benefitted from the strategic courses organised by the College are denied such opportunity due to limited quota given to the Corps.

He therefore appealed for Commandant’s support for the call by the FRSC for increased quota of student intakes to enable more senior officers benefit from the yearly programme. While giving assurance of his commitment to collaborating with the Commandant in organising the proposed strategic leadership training for some senior officers, Oyeyemi restated the commitment of the FRSC to issues of national safety and security.

The Commandant, who was accompanied on the visit by some senior officers of the College, was taken round the FRSC facilities, where he commended the Corps for its huge investment in information and communication technology which facilitates its management of road traffic in the country.
