President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Dauda Ali Biu as the acting corps marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
The appointment was announced in a statement released by the FRSC on Monday.
Biu will replace Boboye Oyeyemi, the former corps marshal, who bowed out of service on Sunday.
Handing over at the FRSC headquarters on Monday, Oyeyemi wished the incoming corps marshal a successful tenure, adding that his appointment takes effect immediately.
Speaking at the event, Bukhari Bello, the FRSC board chairman, congratulated Biu and urged him to sustain the tempo and ensure the mandates of the corps are acted upon.
Bello lauded the former corps marshal for laying a good foundation and legacy.
On his part, Biu appreciated the management of FRSC and the presidency for the appointment, pledging his diligence and zeal in carrying out the FRSC mandate.
Biu holds a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from Ahmadu Bello University and was the assistant corps marshal, finance and accounts, in 2014 before becoming the deputy corps marshal in 2016.
He joined the FRSC in 1988 and has worked across several formations.
