Looking at what Nigerians had to go through during the just concluded general elections as regards the card reader then this gist sounds very funny to me. According to Guardian, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) will soon introduce a device similar to the card reader deployed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) during the last general elections, to detect the authenticity of Drivers’ Licence in the country.
This was disclosed by the Ogun State Command’s Head of Administration, Mr. Steve Ayodele, in his remarks during a sensitization programme for commercial drivers at Kuto Motor Park, in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Ayodele said the device, when introduced, would be deployed by FRSC officials on routine check on the roads, the police and banks. According to him: “The FRSC will soon introduce a small machine that will detect fake Drivers’ Licence.”
“The machine is like the card reader used by the Independent National Electoral Commission during the 2015 general elections,” Ayodele stated.
He added: “ The card reader will soon be introduced. The machines would be given to our officials on routine checks on the road, law enforcement agencies like the police and the banks.
Once the Drivers’ Licence is slotted into the machine, it will show whether it is fake or genuine.” Ayodele, while discouraging patronage of touts, said the official fee payable for license was N6,350.
Dear Nigerians, be getting ready o!!! You can’t begin to imagine the scenarios playing through in this head of mine.
