Abuja: Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has commended the the Inspector General of police, Alh Usman Alkali for banning the use of Spy number plates.
It will be recalled that the IGP had recentl ordered total ban of SPY number plates, directing immediate reversal to the original registered number plates.
In a statement by Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Education Officer, the Corps Marshal described the IGP’s order as a bold step.
Dr Oyeyemi further directed FRSC Commanding Officers across the country to join hands with the Police Force to enforce the order.
He added that they should ensure that no stone is left unturned in the enforcement of the order.
According to him, road users who also parade faded number plates should endeavour to replace them with new ones so as to avoid impounding their vehicles.
Oyeyemi further ordered full force and immediate impoundment of private vehicles that are using commercial number plates
He reiterated the implications of the continuous use of faded and other unauthorized vehicle number plates to national security.
In his statement, the use of the SPY and other unauthorized number plates to continually violate traffic rules and regulations must be brought to a halt, hence the directive given to Commanding Officers to brace up and ensure that they give adequate priority to the enforcement. (Flowerbudnews)
