The Federal Road Safety Corps says it is not entangled in a promotion scandal.

FRSC spokesman, Bisi Kazeem, in a statement on Wednesday, was reacting to a recent report by Daily Trust.

He noted that the agency is guided by the principle that promotion is for the uplift of deserving officers who have met statutory requirements as defined by the Public Service Rules, the FRSC Conditions of Service, the FRSC Scheme of Service and the FRSC Promotion Policy.

“He/She (officer or marshal) must have satisfied the requirement of 3 or 4 years waiting period as applicable on rank. This provision excludes officers transiting from Assistant Corps Marshal to Deputy Corps Marshal which is based on availability of vacancies in any of the six geo-political zones of the federation.

“It is noteworthy to realize that the Corps has 6 DCMs only, each representing the 6 Geo-political Zone. This means that apart from ACM to DCM.

“Others must observe statutory waiting period and can only be qualified for promotion after the required period is met; and 2. The officer must be free of any disciplinary case(s),” he stated.

Before publishing the story, Daily Trust had contacted the Corps Secretary/Assistant Corps Marshal, Susan Ajenge who signed the memo containing the announcement and the list of promotional officers and marshals, but she said the list was not for public consumption.

“This is just an allegation as the list of the promotable officers and marshals is not meant for public consumption.

“Therefore, no rank was left out. This promotion is an internal affair of the FRSC and any person not happy with it should approach the corps marshal. I’m not in a position to comment on this,” Ajenge had said.
