New Number Plates and License: Again Court Rules Against FRSC

A Federal High Court in Abuja has again stopped the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC from imposing new drivers’ and vehicles’ licenses on vehicle owners whose papers are still valid.

The court also declared as unconstitutional the threat by the commission to start arresting car owners who had not obtained the new driver’s license even when their present license are still valid.

In a judgment delivered by John Tsoho, the court held that there is no law backing the redesigning of the old number plates. Tsoho, who delivered the judgment in a suit filed by a lawyer, Emmanuel Ofoegbu, against the FRSC, held that the FRSC had no power to impose the redesigned number plates on vehicle owners, who had not acquired them.
