Oyeyemi instructs FRSC staff to quickly upload vehicle information



By Ibironke Ariyo

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) urged its staff to maintain the interface with states and local governments to ensure the regular and timely upload of vehicle information for enhanced national security.

FRSC Corps Marshal Dr Boboye Oyeyemi on Monday called the National Vehicle Identification System (NVIS) 2021 training for office officers in Abuja.

Oyeyemi said the national average download has remained stable, hence the need to strive to continuously improve efforts, in line with the increase in vehicle registration.

He said that a consistent and sustained upload of data would also provide more support and guidance on the mode of patrol operations to be adopted by the field commands at different times.

Oyeyemi also said that the theme of the workshop, “Efficient NVIS Data Capture and Vehicle Safety,” was aimed at strengthening the body’s ability to improve data management.

This, he said, was in line with Goal 2 of the body’s 2021 corporate strategic goals, which focused on improving staff capacity and road safety management skills.

According to him, the workshop is designed to highlight the need for precaution and due diligence in processing and processing data, in order to achieve the required precision.

“NVIS is a component of the National Uniform Licensing System (NULS), which is a unified system primarily designed to automate the processes involved in the production of plate numbers, registration and verification of vehicles.

“It was launched in the country on January 16, 1993 with the introduction of retro-reflective license plates and the adoption of the alphanumeric system.

“The program aims to correct the haphazard motor vehicle registration process that existed before the creation of the FRSC.

“However, states and the CTF have adopted different modes of licensing drivers and registering vehicles, with glaring disparities that denied effectiveness.

“So far, the data generated is used to support the survey activities of the National Bureau of Statistics and other governmental and non-governmental institutions,” he said.

According to him, since its inception, more than 500 stolen vehicles have been recovered by security agencies thanks to the support of the platform which provides real-time information and access to vehicle details required by security agencies.

Oyeyemi said the leadership will continue to initiate policies that guide the corps’ operations and help resolve emerging challenges.

He said management has also put in place arrangements to purchase and deploy mobile capture equipment to ensure efficient capture of tricycles and motorcycles across the country in NVIS.

The head of the FRSC assured the staff that the leadership will continue to provide all the support necessary to facilitate the tasks of the body and bring about positive results. (NOPE)
