The Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) ranks and salary structure differs from other military agencies in the country. Their primary role is to regulate the highway/federal roads in order to prevent accidents from occurring especially for motorists and road users.
Becoming an officer in the FRSC as a graduate is something most young people who finished from the university would love to do especially when they don’t get jobs at other paramilitary organizations like NSCDC, Nigerian Immigrations, Nigerian Prison Service and Civil defense.
The reason is the salary structure of FRSC especially graduates is on the high. While those entered through OND or ordinary level certificate (o’level) salary isn’t as much as those of senior officers.
Recruitment exercise into the FRSC is a yearly exercise and is sometimes advertised on the pages of National Dailies, popular online news media outlets, etc. Interested candidates should always check newspapers for updates on FRSC jobs.
Since the establishment of the Federal Road Safety Corp in 1988, their functions has since be spelled out through Decree No. 45 of the 1988 as amended by Decree 35 of 1992. Some of which include:
1. Controlling the activities of vehicles on the highway for road users to avoid accidents.
2. Help recommend strategies and tech devices to help curb the risk of accident on the roads.
3. Advice both Federal and state government on traffic related issues.
