The Federal Road Safety Corps has announced that vehicle registration will require National Identification Number (NIN) as a compulsory prerequisite.
Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, made this known in a statement on Saturday.
Oyeyemi said effective from the second quarter of 2021, applicants for vehicle registration would be required to provide their NIN before their vehicles would be registered, adding that the move was in total compliance with presidential directives.
Oyeyemi 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 also enhance adequate Intelligence gathering for the security of lives and properties.”
