The Federal Road Safety Corps has clarified issues surrounding vehicles registration and number plate, explaining that the States Boards of Internal Revenue (SBIRs) usually sell them to the public.
According to a statement yesterday, the head of media and strategy, Bisi Kazeem FRSC noted that “the attention of FRSC has been drawn to a write up in the social media on the issue of number plate registration and difficulties applicants go through in procuring vehicle number plates.
FRSC wishes to make clarifications on some of the misconceptions and innuendoes contained in the said publication as follows:
“The FRSC responsibility is to design and produce vehicle number plates by virtue of Section 5(g) and Section 10 sub section 3(f) of the Federal Road Safety Commission (Establishment) Act, 2007. After production, the number plates are handed over to the States through States Boards of Internal Revenue (SBIRs) who now sell to the public. The payment for number plates by motorists is strictly within the purview of the States since such payments are regarded as road taxes. In like manner, registration of vehicles is also the responsibility of the State Licensing Authorities.”
The statement added that the FRSC however, collaborate with the State agencies involved to set national standards and develop a reliable national database for all registered vehicles in Nigeria.
