Iliyasu-Bashar, who appreciated the efforts of the FRSC, however, urged the corps to do more to tackle the lingering issues of increasing accidents on the highways.
The Emir pledged that the Emirate would collaborate with FRSC to sensitize motorists through consistent public enlightenment to obey road traffic rules.
He called on the corps to raise its enforcement and prosecution of violators, assuring that the emirate would lend its support to the corps.
The Royal Father also appealed to the command and other security agencies to identify and expose the bad eggs among them who extort motorists with a view to flushing them out of the system.
He said: “I want the positive image of the corps protected by continually sanitising the system.
“I also want to advise all security agencies to ensure that only fit and people worthy of good characters are recruited.
“I want to use this medium to note that the ban on motorcycle operation in Lagos has led to the influx of many of the operators into the state and most of the motorcycles are not registered.
“As a body saddled with the responsibility of ensuring safety on roads in addition to vehicle registration, I enjoin you to ensure proper registration of the bikes and licensing of the riders for safety and security reasons,” the Emir said.
Earlier, the Zonal Commanding Officer, ACM Olagunju, appreciated the support of the Emir and the traditional institutions in Kebbi state.
He thanked the Emir for keying into the programmes of the corps to reduce casualties and injuries resulting from accidents on the highways.
Olagunju sought for further collaboration with the emirate to tackle overloading across the state and assured the Emir of the efforts of command to reduce the menace.
He said vehicles including motorcycles with old number plates as well as those not properly registered were being impounded.
The Zonal Commanding Officer told the Royal Father, that the focus of the FRSC management was to ensure the discipline of his personnel.
Olagunju promised that the corps would not relent in its goal of ensuring compliance with traffic laws for improved road safety records in the Zone.
The Zonal Commanding Officer was accompanied to the palace by the Kebbi State Sector Commander, Mr Ebenezer Asaniyan, and other senior officers from the command.
