Nigeria has the fastest growing economy, and the largest population in Africa, its increase in population has increased the number of cars and other vehicles in the country with a ratio of one car to twelve people. It is ranked the number one car buyer in Africa. 

The FRSC was established in 1988, and since its establishment, there has been about a fifty-four percent (54%) reduction in road accidents. Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) is one of the approved agencies by the federal government of Nigeria responsible for road safety management and administration. Its essential function is to ensure the road is safe for road users and vehicles worthy of use.  

The only sector where job security is fully guaranteed is the federal sector. Federal government jobs are secured and come with other benefits such as pensions and health insurance. The role of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) is vital on Nigerian roads and cannot be overemphasized. Just like other federal jobs, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) also recruits artisans, merchants, and graduates from various fields into its agency annually.
