Roads marshal calls for improved licensing systems

17 September 2015, 10:07Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, has charged staff responsible for processing drivers' licences to improve service delivery. 

He said FRSC could not afford to fail the expectations of Nigerians.

Oyeyemi stated this at the opening of a workshop for Sector Heads of Drivers’ Licence Centres from the 36 states of the Federation.

According to the Corps Marshal, the FRSC places importance on staff capacity building in order to prepare them adequately for technical and administrative challenges in their work  environment for enhancement of their productivity level.

The workshop is the fourth in the series of the training programme organised for the staff since the beginning of the year.

Oyeyemi stressed the importance of the National Vehicle Identification  Scheme and the National Driver’s Licence as platforms for collating the data, unifying the process of acquisition of the licenses and standardising the procedures with a view to ensuring the integrity of the system.

He added that in line with the federal system, a tripartite arrangement between the FRSC, the state Boards of Internal Revenue and Vehicle Inspection Officers was put in place to give the states full participation in the process leading to the issuance of the licences.

He listed some of the challenges facing the scheme as non-committal attitudes of some state governments and location of the driver’s licence centres in areas with inadequate security provision for the equipment.

This, he pointed out, led to cases of theft and disruption of production as well as parallel production of the licences.

Oyeyemi urged the heads of driver’s licence centres to improve on their relationship with members of the public, warning that cases of rudeness or abuse of public trust would not be tolerated.

“What I demand of you is improved service; making the best use  of the training you have received and reciprocating the gestures of  providing you with the right equipment and conducive environment to work” Oyeyemi said.
