The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Kwara Command, has said that more than 5, 000 driver’s licences were yet to be collected by their owners in the state.
The FRSC Sector Commander, Sunday Z. Maku, made this disclosure in Ilorin on Wednesday in a press release he signed and made available to our reporter.
“The Federal Road Safety Corps, Kwara State Command during its last count of unclaimed printed driver’s licences at the Kwara State Internal Revenue Services, discovered more than 5, 000,” Maku said.
The commander, therefore, called on applicants, who had applied for driver’s licence and whose temporary licence had expired to check for their licences at the Kwara State Internal Revenue office.
According to the commander, FRSC has cleared all the backlogs of unprinted licences before issuing the press release.
“Applicants whose licences are among the printed ones are expected to collect the original within one week after the press release,” Maku added.
The commander warned that after the expiration of the one week notice, expired temporary driver’s licences would no longer be accepted.
