Managing Director of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), Nurudeen Rafindadi, has disclosed that the agency will embark on palliative repairs in the 353 critical roads in 16 major corridors of the country.
This according to him, is to ensure a trouble free yuletide season.
In related development, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has disclosed that a total of 201 mobile courts will be activated to try defaulters while 21,000 personnel will be deployed nationwide.
Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, said the mobile courts would prosecute stubborn drivers who violate traffic rules resulting in traffic gridlock.
The FRSC boss further disclosed that the Nigerian Air Force has allocated two helicopters for aerial surveillance during the period, adding that over 1,000 patrol vehicles have been deployed and that, all their offices in across the country would be shutdown for operation.
He added that FRSC offices would be shutdown nationwide except for drivers license officers to ease traffic on the roads.
