Written by News Room on April 10, 2022
Federal and State agencies in Northwest say they are taking measures towards ensuring that motorcycles without license do not ply highways in their states.
Responding to a survey from Newsmen on the menace of non-licensed motorcycles, officers in charge of the agencies said apart from boosting the revenue generation capacity of states, ensuring that motorcycles were licensed was desirable considering the security challenges in those states.
The Sector Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Kaduna State Sector Command, Mr. Hafiz Mohammed, said unlicensed motorcycles were not allowed to operate on any road in the country.
He stated that the Kaduna state government had set up a Joint Task Force in the three major towns of Kaduna, Kafanchan and Zaria, to check unlicensed motorcycles.
He said motorcycles found not to have been registered would be confiscated, to be released only when the needful had been done.
