Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), has said Nigerians would require a National Identity Number (NIN) before they can register their vehicles from the second quarter of 2021.
In a statement on Saturday, spokesperson FRSC, Bisi Kazeem, said the decision is in compliance with a presidential directive.
“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. 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 security of lives and properties.”
It said all those applying for vehicle registration “will have to present their NIN as a precondition for the registration of their vehicles.”
It added that “there would be no waiver for anyone irrespective of their status in the society.”
