The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said it had made the presentation of a valid National Identification Number (NIN) compulsory for all categories of vehicle registration.
The Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, an Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM), said this in a statement at the weekend in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that FRSC had begun compliance with this directive since December 21, 2020, when the Corps Marshal directed that all applicants for the National Driver’s Licence must present their NIN before they would be captured for any class of licence.
“The FRSC Corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, has also made provision of NIN mandatory for all categories of vehicle registration, effective from the second quarter of 2021. This is in total compliance with the Presidential directives.
“All applicants of vehicle registration are, therefore, expected to present their NIN as a precondition for the registration of their vehicles.
“And there will be no waivers for anyone, irrespective of their status in the society,” he said.
