FRSC, ICPC Partner to Rid Nigeria of Fake Driver’s Licences

By: ROTIMI ASHER

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n an effort to rid the country of fake licences and sanitize the issuance of National Driver’s Licence system, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences (ICPC) have agreed to work together.

This agreement was reached during a meeting between the Chairman, ICPC, Mr Ekpo Nta and the Corps Marshal of FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi when the latter paid a courtesy call to the former in his office penultimate week.

Mr Ekpo praised FRSC for its initiative in reforming the licences system of the country, adding that, ” it would embarrass Nigeria if the driver licences issued and presented to foreign countries are discovered to be fake as a result of the reciprocity status of the country.

He said, ”this makes it important for relevant stakeholders to work together to ensure that the integrity of the system is protected and those engaged in parallel production like touts are fished out and punished accordingly.”

According to him, the driver’s licence is also an identity document that many rely on to transact business.

” We would therefore, work together to ensure that touts in the document are identified and punished,” he emphasized.

In his response the Corps Marshal expressed his determination to leave a legacy of corrupt- free agency for the FRSC and work hard to sustain its positive image through various policies and programmes including the inauguration of FRSC Anti- Corruption Committee.
