FRSC reveals NIN registration mandatory for licence renewal

FRSC reveals NIN registration mandatory for licence renewal

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), on Thursday, February 4, said that the National Identification Number (NIN) was a prerequisite for issuance and renewal of driver’s licence.

Mr Adebisi Olajide, the FRSC Route Commander in charge of driver’s licence, Ore Unit Command, made this known in an interview in Ore, Ondo State.

Olajide said that the turnout of drivers had been impressive at the FRSC licensing office, adding, however, that many of them had issues because of their inability to provide their NIN.

He also said that some of the intending drivers and the old ones had issues with their dates of birth not corresponding with their information on the FRSC information portal.

“NIN is a prerequisite for drivers who want to have their driver’s licence and those seeking renewal of theirs.

“This has been a big problem with some of the applicants; because most of them have issues with their dates of birth not corresponding with their information on the FRSC portal.

“Drivers need to ensure that they have their NIN before proceeding to obtain or renew their driver’s licence,” Olajide said.

He, however, urged motorists to stop patronising quacks in the process of obtaining or renewing their driver’s licence; because of the NIN, saying that anybody caught would be dealt with in accordance with the law.

Meanwhile, the Soun of Ogbomosoland, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi, has lauded the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari; for approving the establishment of Federal Polytechnic in Ayede, Ogbomoso.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Soun on Wednesday, February 3, who called on the host community to give the institution the maximum support it requires for its smooth take off.

The monarch also lauded the President for approving a take-off grant of N2 billion for the new institution.

He also lauded Governor Seyi Makinde; the Minister of Youth Development and Sports, Dare Sunday, and other stakeholders.

The statement by the Soun read, “On behalf of the good people of Ogbomosoland, I convey my heartfelt and sincere appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the establishment of Federal Polytechnic in Ayede, Ogbomoso with a take-off grant of N2b.

“Mr President as you know, Ogbomoso is one of the prominent and ancient towns in Nigeria; and as such, your decision to site the higher institution in my domain is a good and remarkable development.
