As part of measures to ensure a hitch free electoral process in Edo State, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has deployed 1,500 members of its personnel to cover the forthcoming gubernatorial elections, slated to hold on Saturday 19 September, 2020.

Mr Kazeem noted that the corps marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, equally approved that a total of 35 vehicles, including tow trucks, ambulances and other operational vehicles be deployed to aid the electoral processes in the 18 local government areas of the state.
