FRSC And their "wahala" by Bluette(f): 8:57am On Dec 07
Try to overlook the grammatical errors abeg.

Ouch! I still can't get over this lol. How can she serve this young guy "stew" this early morning?. Lol. It all started 2 weeks ago, my sister was fined by the Almighty FRSC officials to pay a sum of money due to a crack on her windscreen. She begged Mr. D for pardon and leniency, she tried to explain the sun was the main cause for the crack, but all her pleas fell on deaf ears so she was fined. My sis looked into the man's face and just smiled. "No problem I will make the payment" she said.

She did exactly as she said, she paid the money but she hasn't gotten over the issue. She told me she is patiently waiting to see the guy again on the road, that she has something to tell him. I asked her what it was she won't tell me.

Fast forward to this morning, I followed her to the main road to get something and then gbam! She saw Mr. D, "Haaa, look at that monkey faced guy that I begged". Then my sis parked, sis "you would be late for school o" I said, she just smiled and said she has to see the guy. I started getting worried, i know she isn't up to something good. My sis signalled to the man, he came, she greeted him so well, waoh! Asked after his family and then she asked if Mr. D could remember her face, the man said "No", she then explained what transpired between them & how she wanted to explain but they were too busy writing the amount she will pay. The man didn't say a word, out of the blues my sister calmly asked "now that I have paid, have u been promoted?,  has anyone recommended you to your boss for a job well done?,  has your life changed from what it was?"� Then she hissed at him and drove off. I looked back and saw the man standing in total shock and utter embarrassment, God!  I wasn't able to laugh when sis asked those questions but I kept replaying the scenes and I couldn't control my laughter. So these are the questions she has for the man. Though, I felt sad for the man but I also faults him and FRSC as a whole. If u observe so well, FRSC officials takes interest in private cars than public buses / cars. Are public buses invisible to the eyes or do they pay them their dues "bribes"?. The manner in which u correct a private car owner concerning his seat belt, tail lights, extra tyres, fire extinguisher, cracked windshield, should also be the same way u correct those public bus drivers. For Pete sake, they carry more people & goods than private cars and u see them parading the roads with broken tail lights, nylons plastered windshield, don't even talk of extra tyres, rear mirrors, and seat belts. It's 0.01%. They are more on the roads now, due to the festive period. FRSC Officials pls do the needful concerning those commercial vehicles. And to Mr. D so sorry about my sisters outburst lol, u should have gotten over it by now.

What has FRSC done for u that till date, u can't get it off your mind?

I suspect it varies from state to state.

FRSC harass both public & private drivers in some states but when you go further north....hmmmm Na them gentle pass. Although it all come down to knowing your routes well. I've seen many drivers increase speed when they sight FRSC officials. Who wan die. Oga will just look them past. But if you be trouble yourself & you've got plenty time to waste. They respect that.

Brutal truth: Only the weak,uninformed or disadvantaged get harassed by this uniformed men

I have Never been to the North. But over here (SW), they so much pick on private cars. It came to a point, I had to Google if FRSC serves only privates cars in Nigeria, I was shocked when Google told me otherwise. I only had the mindset, they correct private cars owners only.

Well you can't compare the aggressiveness of a public transport driver to the civility of private car owners. Especially in the SW. A bus driver will rather risk pursuit & fight than pay quietly, not to forget their colleagues that will park to support them. They fear VIOs more then FRSC. By the way those officers appraise you visually & by your composure. Most Women & old people are easy pickings
