He also sought the support of residents in the area of Public-Private-Partnership(PPP) in procurement of tow trucks that will yield financial benefits for the partners from proceeds of the activities of the tow trucks.

“All the efforts of the community to establish the FRSC office in Iseyin till date were noted by the Abuja office. Iseyin has shown so much cooperation with our officers unlike some others that chased out our officers from their community and after some years, pleaded that we come back.

“We should remember that all that God gave us are for the benefit of others, people should do things for the sake of humanity, the water project is not just for the FRSC office as it will have spiral effects on the working condition of officers.

“The request for driving school will be looked into soon as it will hasten other sectors of development among motorists and residents.

“We therefore appeal for donation of ambulance and tow truck but if the tow truck can be done under PPP, we are ready for it. The truck owners who can be individuals or the local government will get their own share while FRSC will also get its own.”

She maintained that by doing so, the developmental momentum would be accelerated.
