GROUPS KICK, AS NUMBER PLATES SCARCITY PERSISTS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About fifty stakeholder groups in traffic and transport field are set to drag the Federal Road Safety Commission to the Presidency, National Assembly and the Courts of law if the present scarcity, difficulty, experience and hardship they are facing as regards the perennial scarcity of number plates is not addressed and tackled. Spokesperson of the groups, Alhaji Shittu Oluwatoyin stated this during the groups interaction with select media outfits to express their displeasure over how the Federal Road Safety Commission is hoarding number plates through low production and supply to states especially the F.C.T where most motorists prefer to register their vehicles. How can only the federal road safety commission be the print factory, producers, designers and suppliers of number plates in the country. It is only Lagos state that has its own number plates production plant. According to Shittu, it is high time state governors through their forum as well as the F.C.T authorities install number plates production plants in order to reduce the monopoly by the F.R.S.C. Above all, it could gear up internal revenue generation by the states instead of relying on the F.R.S.C solely for the production of number plates. At a time Federal allocation to states cannot yield the needed and required development, states can use this avenue as alternative means of revenue generation. Among the fifty groups are the Arewa Youths for Peace and Security represented by Salihu Dantata Mahmud, Publicity Director, Transport and Traffic Awareness Initiative represented by Shittu Oluwatoyin, Women for Safety Standards represented by Mrs. Ifeanyi Clara and host of others. Our government institutions like the F.R.S.C must live up to their constitutional tasks and responsibilities. Presently the F.R.S.C is over whelmed with so many self inflicted extra functions due to over zealousness and desire to take over traffic related issues from others sister agencies like the Police, VIO and others, this cannot be allowed to continue. The steps taken by the commission to change its name from the Federal Road Safety Commission to the Nigerian Road Safety Commission at the National Assembly is a dis-service to the Nation completely violating the act that established it in 1988 even though some of the aspects and clauses have been amended? Nigerian Motorists should come out en-masse to support our opposition to the one way traffic posture of FRSC in number plates production. The interest of Nigerians matters a lot, as such we are calling on the President, Leadership of the National Assembly as well as the Judiciary to intervene in this matter for the benefit of all Nigerians, the groups emphasized.
