FRSC issues 1,197 drivers’ licences in Osun

14 May 2015, 13:14

Osogbo - The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Osun on Wednesday said it issued 1197 drivers licences in April to motorists in the state.

The Sector Commander, Muhammad Husaini, made the disclosure in an interview in Osogbo.

"Any drivers’ licence procured without the bearer going to the commission’s office for physical image capturing and provision of bio-data is not authentic.

"Anybody using a driver’s licence procured through payment to a middleman without making a physical appearance at the commission’s registration and capturing office is using a fake drivers’ licence.

"Information on the new drivers’ licence is uploaded into the FRSC database and it is only licences issues by the commission that are certified authentic," he said.

Husaini, therefore, called on motorists not to patronise touts or middlemen in processing or procuring their drivers’ licences.

He, however, said there were procedures to follow in procuring the new drivers’ licence, saying applicants could get more information on the FRSC’s website.

He advised motorists not to patronise any middleman or touts in procuring drivers' licence, insisting that the commission had not authorised anybody to act on its behalf.

Husaini said anybody caught using fake drivers' licence on the road would be apprehended, adding that using fake licence would attract sanctions.
