PDP Convention: FRSC warns Abuja residents against traffic, security



Ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, national convention holding today, Saturday, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has warned Abuja residents of pending traffic buildup around the Eagles square.

One of the nine aspirants for the National Chairmanship position of the PDP, Chief Bode George on Friday, stepped down from the race.

The Corps Public Education Officer, Mr Bisi Kazeem, gave the warning in an interview with journalists on Friday.

Kazeem said an increase in vehicular and human traffic was expected in roads around the Eagle Square, also warning residents to be security conscious.

“There is going to be increase in human and vehicular traffic especially around the venue of the event, and roads leading to Abuja.

“But we have adequately deployed men and logistics to cater for motorists coming in from Lokoja, Kaduna, Niger and Nasarawa States.

“We have beefed up our patrol and ambulance points on the roads.

“From Friday night until Sunday, our men will be at the various junctions leading to the venue of the event.

“Our own is traffic control to safeguard the lives of Nigerians.

“We don’t want crash, and that is why we are calling for caution and patience among motorists and other road users in Abuja on Saturday,” he said.
