“Thanks to Prof Wole Soyinka. It [Federal Road Safety Corps] was his idea. It was he who was concerned about road accidents and came up with a programme which they started in Ibadan. I can't remember what it was.
As a government in those days, we were very receptive to bright ideas. Anybody who came with a very bright idea and was capable of doing it, we gave them support. So, we gave Professor Wole Soyinka all the support and I am glad that till today it is still working.” – Gen Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida
