STATE Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Enugu, Ogbonnaya Kalu has said that it had spread its intelligence to hunt, arrest and prosecute driver’s license racketeers within Enugu State.
The sector commander who made this known while speaking to newsmen in Enugu, said that Nigerians wishing to obtain the driver’s license should go directly to FRSC website to get enlightened and fill license forms.
Mr Kalu revealed that the license was still affordable, and the one of three-year duration cost #6,500 while that of five-year cost #10,500, saying that they should go to a designated FRSC licensing offices and other FRSC formations to make adequate inquiries on how to obtain genuine license from the right source.
“Obtaining the license is further made easy by the FRSC, Vehicle Inspection Office (VIO) and state board of internal revenue having a one-stop shop.
“The one-stop shop brings all these agencies involved in license production under one roof, and all issues concerning license is sorted out under the same roof.
“So, for no reason should any one patronise touts or racketeers, who always inflate the amount payable to obtain a license.
“These unscrupulous elements also produce fake licences to unsuspecting members of the public,”
He further said that any member of the public should report any person, group or syndicate claiming to produce, obtain or help in processing the license, noting that it was a serious offense to drive without a valid license.
