2023: FRSC to deploy 25,783 officials to monitor elections

THE Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it will deploy 25,783 officers to monitor the 2023 elections in different states across the country.

The commission said this is to curb electoral violence and ensure that the presidential poll is conducted safely.

    In a statement issued on Friday, the commission noted that it would also deploy 769 patrol vehicles, 139 ambulances and 33 light, medium and heavy tow trucks.

    FRSC said it intends to collaborate with security agencies to ensure orderliness and timely delivery of election materials.

    It added that the personnel deployed would work round the clock to monitor unfolding events at different polling units.

    “Being a member of the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security, the Corps will work alongside other security agencies to ensure orderliness and timely delivery of election materials,” the statement read in part.
