Yuletide: VIO deploys 1,700 personnel in FCT



The Directorate of Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Road Traffic Services, DRTS, says it has deployed 1,700 personnel to ensure the free flow of traffic during the yuletide celebration in the territory.

Mr Kalu Emetu, the spokesman of the service, made this statement in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said the service has already sent its personnel across the city and the satellite towns to ensure a seamless traffic flow and hitch-free celebration.

”The job we are doing at the moment is the same job we have been doing. The only difference is that we have reinforced our capacity further for a hitch-free celebration.

”Our men and materials are well positioned. Over 1,700 of our men are in different locations within the FCT. They have been briefed on how to relate with the public, especially the motorists.

“They have been told to ensure that all they do is in line with the provisions of the Road Traffic Act CAP548, and in line with the FCT Traffic Regulations for professionalism,” he said.
