The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) on Tuesday said it would no longer accept the collection of driver’s licence by proxy. This was disclosed by Vincent Nwokolo, the Commanding Officer in-charge of Zone one, consisting of Kano, Kaduna and Jigawa states, while speaking at the Road Safety Stakeholders Summit in Dutse. Nwokolo said anybody seeking the issuance of the driver’s licence must be present at the FRSC’s one-stop-shop for his biodata to be captured. He explained that the measure was to check the issuance and circulation of fake drivers’ licences among motorists. He added that most of the licences produced by proxy were illegal and were not in the commission’s database. According to him, the corps will henceforth prosecute any persons found in possession of such licences.
