Eid-el Fitr: NEMA, FRSC deploy personnel nationwide


The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) says it has deployed its personnel nationwide to ensure smooth flow of traffic and emergency response during the Eid-el Fitr.

The agency said this in a statement signed by Mr Manzo Ezekiel, Head, Press and Public Relations.

He said the exercise was part of a collaboration with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and other stakeholders.

“The deployment is a continuation of a similar exercise during the recent Easter celebrations and would last a period of one week.

“NEMA offices nationwide have been activated to deploy personnel and equipment this weekend to strategic road corridors that usually experience a high volume of vehicular movements during festivities.

“Others are Directorates of Road Transport Services (otherwise known as VIO) and National Union of Road Transport Workers and others in the various states and FCT Abuja,” the statement read.
