“Consequently, to ensure compliance, the EIRS, FRSC, VIOs, EDSTMA, Security Agencies and Transport Unions shall be at all private and commercial motor, tricycle and motorcycle parks to ensure motorists possess valid vehicle and driving documents.”
He listed vehicle licence, driver’s licence, number plate, certificate of road worthiness, hackney carriage and vehicle insurance cover as part of valid documents every motorist should possess.
“For the avoidance of doubt, motorists found to be in contravention, shall be prosecuted in line with extant Road Traffic Laws,” Eboigbe added.
