The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has warned that driver’s licence applicants are expected to present their National Identification Number before they can be attended to.
This new development was a directive given by the federal government and enforcement will take effect from December 21 and there would be no waiver for anyone.
Mr Bisi Kazeem, Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM), Corps Public Education Officer, announced this in a statement released.
“Following the Federal Government’s directives on the harmonisation of citizens’ data by relevant agencies, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) had in compliance with the directives earlier put members of the public on notice. As a follow up to that, FRSC Management has resolved that effective 21 December, 2020, all applicants for the National Driver’s Licence in Nigeria must present the National Identification Number (NIN) from the @nimc_ng before they can be captured for any class of the licences produced by the FRSC”, the statement reads.
