Reps to investigate indiscriminate issuance of drivers’ licence

The House of Representatives has directed the committee on Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) to investigate the indiscriminate issuance of driver’s licence to motorists.

Moving the motion, Ezenwa Francis Onyewuchi (PDP Imo state) said that the aim of the motion was to ensure sanity on most Nigerian roads. He said the driver’s licence regime had been commercialised to the extent that it could be acquired from the road side.

“It is only in Nigeria that one can purchase a driver’s licence, this is rather unfortunate” he said.

According to him, the FRSC Act, 2007 empowered the commission to investigate and certify driving schools as well as minimise accidents on the highways. He identified lack of proper training as a major cause of road accidents on Nigerian roads.

The motion which was unanimously adopted without debate was referred to the committee on FRSC for further legislative inputs.

The committee is expected to report its findings to the house within four weeks.

    I hope the Governors that generate revenue from the proliferation of drivers licences and riders cards, to the detriment of pedestrians and accidents victims, are actually found wanting, prosecuted and jailed for multiple man slaughter, negligence that lead to deaths and fatalities, crimes against society, mis-directing and mis-informing the public, amongst other offenses.

    But I know that the investigation would be inconclusive… no head, no tail.

    Oh NIGERIA…!
