The FRSC has relieved the state sector commander of duties following remarks on the fuel subsidy.


Fredrick Ogidan, the Corps Commander overseeing the Kwara State sector command, has been relieved of his position following a controversial comment made by him at a public event.

Reported by Premium Times, Ogidan’s statement during the conferment of Special Marshal on the Founder of Al-Hikmah University, AbdulRaheem Oladimeji, suggested that the removal of fuel subsidy was impacting the operations of his command. He stated, “The subsidy removal has increased our budget and limited our movements, which has affected our operations. However, the good news is that the issue is already receiving attention and a necessary response from the headquarters. Very soon, we are expecting an increase in our finances following the assurance from the Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali Biu.”

Sources now indicate that Mr. Ogidan has been “recalled to the national headquarters of the commission.” The FRSC management views the comment as an act of indiscipline, contrary to the organization’s code of conduct and regulations on the maintenance of discipline.
