We’re Not Responsible for Production and Issuance of Illegal Number Plate in Kano, FRSC Reacts to ‘Chip Whip’ Saga

Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Sunday reacted to the existence of a number plate issued with the wrong spelling of “CHIP WHIP” instead of the correct spelling of CHIEF WHIP to the Kano State House of Assembly.

FRSC, in a statement by its Commander, Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, stated categorically that “the said number plate did not originate from any of the FRSC Number Plate production centres, neither was it issued by the Corps.”

“We are therefore making it abundantly clear to members of the public that FRSC as the lead agency in road traffic management and safety administration in the country has nothing to do with the said number plate as some people are insinuating on some social media  platforms.

“For the avoidance of doubt, FRSC with its International Quality Management certification (ISO 9001: 2008) has rigorous quality procedures for producing and issuing any of its security documents which makes the possibility of such obvious grammatical errors on any of its licences an impossibility.

“Consequently, the Corps Marshal, Dr  Boboye Oyeyemi has ordered the Sector Commander of Kano State to investigate the origin of the purported number plate  with a view to bringing the perpetrators of the illegal act to book.

“Furthermore, he has directed  all field commands  across the country to be on vigilance and clampdown on producers and issuers of fake number plates.

To this end, he calls on members of the public to immediately report any act of such illegality against all FRSC security documents, while assuring of the competence and diligence of the Corps in carrying out all its assignments geared toward ensuring safer road environments for safety and security of all Nigerians,” the statement said.
