VIO generates N541 600 from motorists

06 June 2013, 16:02

Birnin Kebbi - The Kebbi Vehicle Inspection Office (VIO) has realised N541 600 in two months from fines imposed on erring motorists .

The Director, Abdullahi Faruk, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi on Thursday.

Faruk said the revenue was generated from activities of the VIO Mobile Court, adding, "the court will be sustained to end reckless driving, traffic offences as well as improve revenue generation.

He identified shortage of staff as a major challenge to the office, adding that there was lack of manpower for routine activities within the 10 zones.

"The mobile court had assisted in the reduction of traffic offences which included out dated licence, overloading as well as protection of other road users,’’ he said.

He said in 2012, N1.4 million was realised from the high way patrol, N2.2 million on Road Worthiness Certificate and N1. 8 million on drivers’ licence.

Faruk said the office had established good working relationship with department of internal revenue, Police and Magistrate’s Court.

"We will require additional support from state authorities, especially on recruitment of staff,’’ he said.

He also expressed concern over the acquisition of driver’s licence through dubious means.

"If the issuance of drivers’ licence becomes our sole responsibility, the cases of fake and unauthorised issuance will be stopped.’’
