According to an earlier statement credited to the Executive Chairman, Ekiti State Internal Revenue Service, Mr Olumuyiwa Ogunmilade, the enforcement will border on comprehensive checks of Vehicle Particulars and Driver’s License.
He said: “Also the use of old number plates will no longer be tolerated as stated in the laws of the country.”
Mr Ogunmilade stressed that the enforcement is not meant to victimize anyone but to make sure that things are done appropriately. He mentioned that the exercise had begun on 27th of January but it was halted due to limited awareness.
The Executive Chairman stated that Ekiti State Internal Revenue Service has since then done the needful by going on air to announce the commencement of the exercise.
He said ”the publicity that has been done is aimed at creating awareness in the State to make sure that every citizen in the State is intimated on the road enforcement which will commence on Monday, 3rd February”.
Mr Ogunmilade has since advised those that fall under any of these categories to visit EKIRS to obtain the authentic Vehicle Particulars, Driver’s License and new Number Plates.
