Sokoto begins registration of motorbikes, tricycles
In its bid to strengthen security measures, the Sokoto State Government has directed all commercial motorcycles and tricycles operating across the state to register their personal information (biodata) within 30 days.
It said failure to comply with the directives may result in the total ban of commercial motorcycles and tricycles operations in the state.
The essence, it said, was aimed at curtailing the high level of insecurity in the state.
The Special Adviser to Governor Aminu Tambuwal on Special Duties, Muhammad Sa’idu Gumburawa disclosed the development in Sokoto.
Gumburawa explained that the collation of the motorcycle data and verification exercise commenced in October and is expected to end this month.
“The exercise became necessary so as to checkmate the operation of the commercial bike in view of the incessant cases of banditry attacks being reported in the state.
“The exercise would also enable the state government to have authentic record and documentation of commercial motorcycle and tricycle riders working in the state,” Gumburawa said.
He assured that after the exercise, registration numbers would be issued to owners of the motorcycles and tricycles for easy identification in addition to reflective jackets.
He, therefore, advised the commercial vehicle operators across the state to support the project and desist from any illegal activity that may cause insecurity.
According to him, all the motorcycles operating in the state must participate and should be endorsed by their district heads.
