The Federal Road Safety Corps, Ogun State has pleaded with road users to emulate Jesus Christ as they celebrate the Easter period.
Mr. Clement Oladele, Sector Commander of FRSC gave this advice in an interview with newsmen in Ogun State.
According to him, the Easter is about the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“Because Jesus Christ loves the world, he sacrificed his life so that human beings could find redemption.
“In the same light, when a motorist does not have love for other road users, he/she will not respect and tolerate them when they make mistakes on the highways.
“If a motorist does not love, he/she cannot respect the rules and regulations guarding the safety of the highways.
“If motorists do not have love for one another, they will not obey traffic officials that are labouring day and night, who have abandoned their families to ensure that people get to their destinations safely,” he said.
Oladele explained that if road users could emulate the qualities of Jesus Christ and apply those qualities on the highways, it would help to reduce the rate of crashes , save lives and properties on the roads.
