The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Monday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Federal University of Technology (FUTO), Owerri for degree awarding programmes.
Newsmen report that with the MoU, the FRSC’s academy in Udi, Anambra is now affiliated with the university.
Corp Martial of FRSC, Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, perfected the MoU with the Vice Chancellor (VC) of FUTO, Prof. Francis Eze.
According to the agreement, FUTO will supervise and award Diploma, Degree and Post Graduate certificates to successful graduates of the academy on Transport Management Technology (TMTech).
