FRSC lists gains of new driver’s licence
CORPS Marshall and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Osita Chidoka, has said that the newly proposed driver’s licence would help to curb economic crimes in the country. He spoke while on a courtesy visit to the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Larmorde in Abuja yesterday as he indicated interest to collaborate with the anti-graft agency to curb identity forgery and the menace of global money laundering.
The Spokesman to EFCC, Wilson Uwajaren, said that Chidoka explained to Lamorde and other top management staff of the EFCC that the old driver’s licence had been compromised by fraudsters within and outside Nigeria, necessitating the introduction of a new one based on a robust data base with unique identification system to replace the old one.
“He also informed the EFCC that because the driver’s licence was the most common means of identification required by financial institutions in most transactions, the new one will stop fraudsters from operating multiple bank accounts”, Uwajaren said.
