Days That Federal Road Safety Corps Cannot Work. Daily Law Tips (Tip 514) by Onyekachi Umah, Esq., LLM. ACIArb(UK)

Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has powers to ensure safe roads across Nigeria through the Federal Road Safety Corps. They ensure road users are happy and safe. So, what time of the day are officers and staff of FRSC not permitted to work, manage and arrest road users in any part of Nigeria.

Federal government agencies and commissions are created by federal laws and must work within their establishing/enabling laws. Federal Road Safety Commission was created since 1988 by Federal Road Safety Commission Act of 1988. Since law must grow with society, there was need to amend the above law, hence a new Federal Road Safety Commission Act was enacted on 25 May, 2007.

By the Federal Road Safety Commission Act 2007, there is no stipulated period within which FRSC cannot work in any part of Nigeria. They don’t have any day off as an establishment, they can work even on sunday and public holiday. FRSC is your saver, drive safely.


Sections 1, 30 and 31 of the Federal Road Safety Commission (Establishment) Act, 2007.

  1. Interesting. By the FRSC Operational Manual, members of the Corps are on 24 hours every day. The Corps operational commands (the Sector Commands, Unit Commands, Out-post Commands and Ambulance Service Unit known as Zebra) work on shift basis and standby team for emergency.
