The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has announced that the provision of the National Identification Number (NIN) is now compulsory for issuance of fresh driver license, renewal, and for all categories of vehicle registration.
The agency stated that this order will take effect from the second quarter of 2021.
This was contained in a statement issued on Saturday by the Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem.
He stated that the move is in total compliance with the presidential directives.
“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,” FRSC Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, was quoted as saying.
“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.”
