A postponement of the new drivers’ license and plate number enforcement is not in sight as the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has reiterated its commitment to commence enforcement operations on the scheduled day - October 2, 2019.
This was disclosed by the Sector Commander in Osun State, Peter Oke, while speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo the state capital on Wednesday.
Oke stated that the command had outlined a framework for enforcing the new regulation throughout the state. Part of the strategy for the operation includes collaborating with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the state to create public awareness ahead of the D-day. Various campaigns are being done to sensitize members of the public on the importance of having the new license and plate number.

Speaking further, the Commander said that the portal used for issuing the driving particulars will be handled by the state department for Motor Licensing Authority (MLA). And with more road activities in the ember months, the state has heightened road safety measures.
Lamenting over abandoned drivers’ license by motorists, the FRSC official urged those who were yet to pick up theirs to do so at the commission’s office nearest to them.
“Awareness campaigns are being carried out by the command to inform and educate the public on the enforcement plans.
“The command’s enforcement in the state has improved towards the ember months.”
