Speaking at the launch, the Honourable Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Mr. Sewedo Oluseyi Whenu said that the development is to further prioritize safe motoring measures for crime detection on Lagos roads.

According to him, one of the major benefits of the initiative is the creation of a robust database for all articulated and heavy-duty vehicles, especially those that ply State roads.

“As you are all aware, it is quite difficult to manage or deal with any problem effectively if you can’t measure it or have verifiable data. The essence of the database is, therefore, to provide and share valuable information and data on an articulated vehicle with the law enforcement agencies, the Nigeria Police and the Vehicle Inspection Service (VIS) for safety and security as well as criminal investigation and detection purposes”, he stated.

Oladeinde disclosed that all new vehicles coming into the State through the Ports will be required to obtain the Temporary Vehicle Tag (TVT) to be issued by Motor Vehicle Administration Agency (MVAA) as a means of identification for yet-to-be-fully registered, newly-acquired vehicles pending full registration.

He maintained that the new Articulated Vehicle Number Plate (AVNP) scheme has been designed and simplified to engender user-friendly and seamless procedures for the issuance of the plates, assuring that the pricing regime for the plates is affordable.
