Society Donates First Aid Materials To Anambra’s FRSC Command


The Anambra State Chapter of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) has donated 20 boxes of first aid materials to the Anambra State Command of the FRSC.
Delivering the items in Awka, the Chairman of the PSN in the state, Mrs Chisom Uchem, said the gesture was to complement the efforts of the FRSC in tackling emergencies.
Uchem said the PSN was impressed with the efficiency of the command and needed to support the establishment to do more.
She said the donation would go a long way in supporting the FRSC to do more to save the lives of road users.
The chairman called on individuals and corporate bodies to assist the FRSC in its bid to reduce carnage on Nigerian roads.
The RS5 Benin Zonal Commander, Mr Shehu Zaki, described the donation “as historic”.
Zaki said he had not seen such assistance since he joined the FRSC, noting that the FRSC needed assistance from the public.
He described safety as everybody’s business, saying that all hands must be on deck to keep roads free of accidents.
The zonal commander said that the FRSC had created the special marshals’ unit to accommodate volunteers wanting to enlist in the FRSC.
The Anambra State Sector Commander, Mr Sunday Ajayi, described the PSN as partners in progress, promising to ensure judicious use of the first aid materials.
Ajayi said the doors of the FRSC were open to members of the public wishing to assist the FRSC in service delivery.
Each of the 20 boxes contained essential medical materials, including methylated spirit, forceps, scissors, Iodine, Paracetamol, bandages and plasters.
