FG INTRODUCES NEW VEHICLE REGISTRATION SYSTEM

The federal government of Nigeria is introducing a new electronic Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun says.

Any vehicle on which duty has not been paid will not be able to be registered and driven in Nigeria, she said.

“We are introducing a new system where all vehicles will be registered using the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), effective 31st March, 2017. Customs clearance will be linked to the VIN and this in turn will be required by each state government at the point of vehicle registration.

“We are using technology to make smuggling an unprofitable venture,” the minister stated.

Speaking at the commencement of a workshop on the new registration platform, held at the Customs Command and Staff College, Gwagwalada, Abuja yesterday, she said the initiative aims to introduce technology to counter the activities of smugglers and boost revenue collections.
