- The FRSC has released a set of criteria for disqualifying applicants who intend to work on its platform
- Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi on Tuesday, September 25, said that applicants with tattoos, bow and knocked knees will be disqualified during its screening exercise

Boboye Oyeyemi, the corps marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said that job applicants with tattoos, bow and K-legs will be disqualified from its ongoing screening.
Oyeyemi made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) while inspecting the screening exercise at the Ikeja 9 Brigades Military Cantonment in Lagos on Tuesday, September 25.
“In any uniform service, you are not supposed to have tattoo on your body; likewise twisted eyes, bow, K-legs and flat foot are not allowed in the service.
“This is because anybody with bow and K-legs will not be able to stand and walk for a long period of time.In uniform service, you must be able to walk and run long distances in case of emergency.”
He further said: To save life, you will be required to walk long distances and you won’t be able to perform your duty if you have “K” or flat leg.
“We have patrol duties for eight hours and rescue exercise can take up to five hours and if you are not fit you can’t do it. Likewise for pregnant and married women, we can’t take them because that is the rule for uniform services.
“We have states that have high concentration of applicants, like Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Kaduna, Benue, Lagos, Enugu and Oyo," Oyeyemi said.
Oyeyemi commended the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Air force, Police, Civil Defence and the Department of State Security Service for their support towards the success of the screening.
The FRSC boss said that the ongoing exercise across the country had been transparent, decent and on merit in line with the principle of federal character.
