The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has warned parties and politicians to avoid excessive speed and reckless driving.
Corps Marshal Dauda Bio on Tuesday asked convoy drivers to handle vehicles with caution.
Biu’s warning followed several car accidents, some fatal, involving party members and supporters.
A statement from the Corps’ General Education Officer, Bessie Kazem, urged drivers to obey traffic regulations to avoid accidents.
The marshal said that despite repeated warnings and appeals by the FRSC, many motorists still violate applicable laws.
“The officers were instructed to enhance the visibility of the patrol teams at specific strategic locations,” Kazem noted.
However, Bio praised parties and candidates who abide by traffic rules.
The agency announced the deployment of more operational vehicles and manpower to combat bottlenecks.
