The medical outreach of the Federal Road Safety Corps(FRSC) has been commended by the state chairman of Nigerian Union of Road Transport Workers, comrade Erebo Thankgod. According to him, the programme was very encouraging since it would enable the drivers to take care of their health issues.
The chairman made the commendation when the FRSC medical team carried out checkup and eye tests for drivers and workers in the motor park.
” Without Road Safety Corps, there is no Union and without Union, no Road Safety,” he stated.
He said, the programme has afforded the drivers the opportunity to know their medical status even as he regretted the low turn our of drivers at the programme.
“Most drivers are not here and they are supposed to know that checking their health often is a good thing for them”,he said.
