The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says February 2021 is the deadline for installing safety valves in oil tanks.
This, according to the security corps, is part of an effort to stop repeated explosions across the country.
Marshall Corp., Boboye Oyeyemi, announced this Wednesday at the end of the year at a patrol briefing in Abuja, the state capital.
Oyeyemi said safety valves are key to preventing tank explosions and ensuring that, “even if a tanker falls, it won’t spill.”

He also warned drivers to avoid violations, including speed limits, overloading, dangerous driving and illegal use of spy license plates, among other violations.
He added that there are situation rooms across the country and that over 25,000 staff have been deployed to cover significant routes during the yuletide.
