Plateau Youths Kick Against Relocation of FRSC Academy from Jos to Enugu

…Threaten Total Mass Protest

Agabus Pwanagba, Jos

Following the relocation of the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) Academy from Jos to Enugu, some Plateau youths have staged a peaceful demonstration, threatening a total mass protest in the entire middle belt zone if the decision is not reversed.

The Youths who were in their hundreds on Friday gathered at the Plateau State House of Assembly Complex, to demand that the lawmakers take up the matter.

The group’s spokesman, Friday Bako, said they gave the legislators a two-week ultimatum to reverse the relocation or face massive protest by youths from the middle belt region.

He noted that, the FRSC academy was established in 2007 by the then Corps Marshal General Haladu Hananiya for the training of its officers in Jos, but describing as unfortunate and criminal for the present Corp Marshal General, Osita Chidoka to order the relocation of all staff at the academy to Enugu, his home state region.

“Since Mr. Osita Chidoka has only about a year left before the expiration of his second and final term in office, is he trying to justify his mostly lack-lustre tenure to his kith and kin by taking away the FRSC Academy from Jos to his home region?” The group wondered.

Bako further explained that, for former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Haladu Hananiya to have cited the Academy in Jos shows they knew it is the best for the country.

“What advantage does Enugu have over Jos to host the Academy? Especially since it is an acknowledged fact that Plateau has the most conducive weather in the Country.

“Since the Chairman FRSC Board, Mr. Felix Chukwu also hails from the South-East zone as Osita Chidoka, it seemed he connived with the Corps Marshal General to perpetrate this illegality.” Bako lamented

He called on the Federal Government to ensure the return of the academy to Jos, adding that youths from the middle belt zone will embark on Mass protest daily until it’s returned.

Responding, the Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Hon.Titus Alams, urged the youths to be patient and promised that the lawmakers will take up the matter.

  1. We would stampede all government and economic activities for a day in the State and other middle-Belt States if the decision is not reversed to show how serious we are and how vital the academy is to us . The explanation the Sector Commadant gave us in the close door meeting we had with the Majority Leader and Committee PLHA committee on Works is just laughable. How can you plan to relocate an academy 12years before its establishment in 2007? I have never seen where a woman would be planning for abortion when she is not married or conceived(when she is not yet pregnant). Thanks for the update
