The Commandant, Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), Seni Ogunyemi has said that enhancement of professionalism in carrying out duties, human capital development, integrity and discipline would be the focal point at this year’s Corps Commander’s Conference,
Ogunyemi in a chat with the Press in Abeokuta said, the Conference with the theme, “A system Approach to Human Capital Development to Attain Road Safety Vision 2020 Agenda”, which would be for senior officers of the Corps from GL10 and above, will commence from November 30 to December 2, at the Peacock Hall, Divine Providence Hotel and Suites, Abiola Way, Abeokuta.
He revealed that the aim of this year’s edition of the conference was to improve on their professionalism, as well as equip them technologically, to prepare them for the task ahead, saying, ‘’they are the next in line, that is, succession-wise to the top hierarchy of the TRACE Corps’’.
Commander Ogunyemi noted that distinguished personalities, who are veterans in their field of endeavours, have been chosen to share their wealth of experience with the Senior Officers at the Conference, adding that the Officers would in turn, be able to develop the middle-level managers of the Corps.
“In this technologically driven age, where human capacity development is paramount, the conference is important because when you are well trained and equipped, you will be able to give your best, in terms of effective and efficient service delivery to the generality of the public within and around the Ogun State traffic corridor”, Ogunyemi said.
The TRACE boss however appealed to the State Government to continue to support the Corps to better enhance its operational activities in the State, as well as corporate bodies, noting that the improvement in the area of logistics, Officers welfare and provision of operational equipment would go a long way in reshaping the Corps.
According to him, “road traffic management is highly capital intensive, and we are fully aware that the government cannot do it alone, that is why we are looking towards the side of the corporate world to also benefit from them through Corporate Social Responsibility, which will help support what the government is doing, as we all know that, safety on our roads is collective responsibility”.
