Aniagwu said: “This is another testimony of the Okowa-led administration to leave behind a stronger Delta.“We have always assisted federal institutions in the state – the police command, civil defence, immigration and of course the 63 brigade Nigerian Army, which we built and handed over to them, and so this isn’t the first time the state government is assisting the Federal Government.“The capacity that we increase here in Delta has a way of impacting at the federal and so we are happy that we have been able to help the Federal Government in putting up this project and am sure that the Vice President will be very happy with what we have done here.“As a government we are happy because what we are going to gain is far more greater than what we have put in here,”
“This is actually a Federal Government agency and the story of this place started towards the end of 2019 when the FRSC expressed the intention to have the inspectorate training centre in Delta.“Due to the importance of road safety, the State Government decided to assist the FRSC to ensure capacity building in curbing road accidents.“We thought it necessary to assist them in capacity building and because its sited in Delta and we will gain a lot in curbing road accidents in the state. he added.
