Federal Road Safety Commission’s threat to
impound vehicles come October 1 might not just
happen any more, after a Federal High Court in
Lagos this morning declared the new number
plates illegal, saying it’s unconstitutional.
The judge said; that it was unlawful for the
commission to impose the new number plates on
Nigerians, where no existing law permitted it.
The suit was filed by Emmanuel Ofoegbu, a lawyer,
against FRSC after they insisted every Nigerian
must get the plate number, or have their vehicles
impounded as from the 1st of October, 2014.
God bless Mr Emmanuel. Whoop! Whoop!! But
what of those of us that have changed out
number plates? We want our money back Lol
