Federal Road Safety Corps has advised motorists to emulate Jesus Christ as they celebrate the Easter period.
The Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr. Clement Oladele, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ota, Ogun.
According to him, the Easter is about the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“Because Jesus Christ loves the world, he sacrificed his life so that human beings could find redemption.
“In the same light, when a motorist does not have the love for other road users, he/she will not respect and tolerate them when they make mistakes on the highways.
“If a motorist does not love, he/she cannot respect the rules and regulations guarding the safety of the highways.
“If motorists do not have the love for one another, they will not obey traffic officials that are labouring day and night, who have abandoned their families to ensure that people get to their destinations safely,” he said.
Oladele said that if motorists could emulate the love, kindness, tolerance, and humility of Jesus Christ and apply it to the rules of the highways, it would reduce crashes and save more lives and property on our roads.
