The enforcement of the Ogun State Motorcycles Riders Identification Scheme is scheduled to begin on Monday in Abeokuta, and other parts of the state.
Ahead of Monday, only 25 per cent of targeted motorcycle riders in the state have registered in the scheme, and issued with the unique Biometric Identity Cards.
Chairman of Commercial Motorcycle Riders Identification Scheme (CUMORIS) in Ogun State, Juwon Adebanjo, who made this known in an interview with a Rockcity FM correspondent, Yemi Eniola, said operatives of the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement (TRACE) will join in the enforcement of the rider’s permits.
He warns that motorcycle riders who fail to register and produce the biometric identity cards will be sanctioned, but silent on the stipulated penalties.
Adebanjo said those who had registered under the scheme started receiving their unique identity cards as from last November 12.
According to him, the registration of motorcycle riders in the scheme which started on June 29, 2021, was shifted to October 1.
He however explained that the enforcement was shifted from October 1 to November 22, because of the sudden reposting of the state police commissioner.
Adebanjo while commending the commercial motorcycle riders union in the state for their cooperation said the registration is for all persons riding motorcycles in the state.
