Owners and drivers of old rickety cars would not be allowed to ply the Federal Capital territory (FCT) roads from September 1, this year.
This was disclosed by the Managing Director of Temple Resources, Segun Obayando whose company operates the Computerised Vehicle Inspection Machine System across the Federal Capital Territory.
Vowing to employ the services of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in ensuring full compliance warned that the era of impunity and giving excuses are over.
Speaking on the importance and necessity of averting road accidents via periodic checks of vehicles, Mr. Obayando told Leading Reporters that “The computerized vehicle driven system has the capacity to eliminate accidents on the roads.
“Our company has started to put the public on notice to ensure that their vehicles are on good condition as non-compliant vehicles will not be allowed on the roads from the take off date.
“Vehicles owners know what to do and when to check their vehicles. The problem is that Nigerians keep managing and managing themselves to death. We want everyone to be a beneficiary of the project”
He said that states like Lagos, Anambra, Enugu, Abia, Niger and Sokoto will soon take off on the computerized systems having signed working agreement with them.
