20,000 drivers’ licences ready for collection in Lagos

Lagos  State governor, Mr. Babatnde Fashola  has visited the drivers’ licence Facility at Ojodu to complete   his driver’s license process, directing all the agencies concerned to publicise the fact that over 20,000 licences are ready for collection across the state.

The governor went through eye and written tests with the Vehicle Inspection Service, VIS, and photo data capture with the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, at the end of which he got his temporary driver’s licence.

In an interview at the premises of the driver’s licence facility after the exercise, Governor Fashola told newsmen who inquired about his experience, “the only thing now is that I was told that there is a batch of drivers’ license there that people have not come to collect. So we will, at the state level and with the FRSC, think about how to create public awareness on this.

“I am told that about 20,000 people out there are yet to collect their licences. They (Drivers Licence Facility agencies) are concerned about cost and may be they are thinking about how to publish the names on the internet or something. Perhaps, it is a good time, those who have come here for biometrics may come here and do random check and they will respond to them.” the governor said.

He described his experience during the exercise as good, noting, however, that it was presumptuous to judge with his own experience since it could also be possible that he received a fast tracked treatment because of who he is.
The governor said he got favourable feedback from members of the public whom he met and spoke with at the facility.
