The Federal Road Safety Corps has commenced the enforcement of compulsory presentation of the National Identification Number (NIN) by applicants for national driver’s licence. The NIN would be a compulsory requirement for vehicle registration nationwide, with effect from the second quarter of this year. Corps Marshal Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi stated this in a statement, pointing out that this was in total compliance with a presidential directive.

In a statement signed by the Corps Public Education Officer at the FRSC, Bisi Kazeem, all applicants for vehicle registration are therefore expected to present their National Identification Number as a precondition for the registration of their vehicles from the second quarter of this year, April, adding that there will be no waiver for anyone irrespective of their status.

The FRSC further emphasised that “the exercise had become very imperative seeing the critical role a harmonised database on citizens’ information will have on national development in terms of resolving the challenges of identifying individuals to assist security agencies in data collation and speedy retrievals to address critical national security challenges.”

It stated that the Corps Marshal also urged members of the public who had not enrolled in the ongoing NIN registration at the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to do so as the corps would not register any vehicle whose owner is not captured in the NIMC database.

uoted the corps marshal,  Kazeem said “Beginning from the second quarter of this year (2021), if you want to register your vehicle, it is going to be compulsory for you to provide your NIN. This is part of the security checks. So once you provide your NIN, it makes the matter easier and helps the government in national planning, critical decision making and enhance adequate intelligence gathering for security of lives and properties.”
