The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said the provision of the National Identification Number (NIN) is mandatory for all categories of vehicle registration.
This was made known in a statement signed by Boboye Oyeyemi, FRSC Corps Marshall, on Saturday.
According to Oyeyemi, all applicants for vehicle registration will from the second quarter of 2021 be required to provide their NIN before their vehicles would be registered.
The FRSC Corps Marshall explained that the move is in total compliance with presidential directive on NIN registration and integration.
The statement read: “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 also enhance adequate Intelligence gathering for security of lives and properties.”
The FRSC had mandated all applicants of the National Driver’s Licence in the country to present their National Identification Number before they can be captured for any class of the licences produced by the FRSC.
