The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Kebbi on Tuesday tasked motorcycles and tricycles owners to acquire their number plates and driver’s licences before Oct. 2.
“We are informing the general public, particularly motorcycles and tricycles riders in the state that the enforcement of number plates and licenses scheduled to commence on 1 August, 2019 has been postponed to 2 Oct., 2019.
“Motorcycles and tricycles owners should, therefore, take advantage of this postponement to process and acquire their number plates and licenses before the new date,” he said.
Asaniya urged motorcyclists and tricyclists to learn to do the right thing without having to be compelled by traffic officials.
In his response, the state Chairman of the Okada Riders Association, Alhaji Nafi’u Zaki, told NAN that their members were law abiding, adding that, “you hardly see our members without number plates on their vehicles.”
He assured the FRSC of their support in ensuring the successful enforcement of the number plates and drivers’ licenses in the state.
Zaki said the enforcement by the FRSC was a good move, adding: “I see no reason why someone can buy a motorcycle of N230,000 but fail to buy a number plates of N7,500.”
The chairman also called on members to always drive with their drivers’ license and adhere to road rules and regulations for their safety.
