WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN THE FEDERAL ROAD SAFETY CORP
It is understandable that there is a high rate of unemployment in Nigeria. But be that as it may, you should understand that you should not jump into any work without prior knowledge about what it is all about.
Not everyone can work effectively as a Road Safety officer. How then can you know if you really should work as a road safety officer?
- You must have immense love for lives than money.
- You should have human sympathy to understand people always.
- Patriotic to the nation (Nigeria)
- A road safety worker must be diligent and disciplined.
If you lack the above qualities in you, I really doubt you will be a good Road Safety worker. If you have these qualities and even more, then you are good to go.
