The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) on Friday advised residents of Lagos who wanted speedy issuance of the new drivers licence to go to its Ojodu office in the state.
Mr Nseobong Akpabio, the Sector Commander of FRSC in Lagos, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the state had the largest centre in the country and had two machines in Ojodu alone.
Akpabio said that there were data capturing machines in four other locations in Eti-Osa, Ikeja, Bariga and Ikorodu but the ones in Ojodu had lesser people using them. He said that the machine in Okokomaiko was burnt during a riot and that government was working to replace it. "We have five centres in Lagos State; so, if we you are picking a centre for the driver's license and you are in a hurry, we advise applicants to pick Ojodu, one which has a new machine and has less applicants," he said.
He advised applicants not to patronise touts and ensure that they went to the Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) for screening to qualify for the issuance of vehicle licence.
