The Federal Capital Territory Administration will from September 1, 2006, outlaw unworthy vehicles from the roads in the nation’s capital.

This was disclosed by the Managing Director of Temple Resources, Segun Obayando, which is the company authorized to operate the Computerised Vehicle Inspection Machine System across Abuja roads.

Obayando said the computerised vehicle driven system has the capability to eliminate accident on the roads. He added that the company has started to put the public on notice to ensure that their vehicles are in good condition as non-compliant vehicles will not be allowed on the roads from the take off date.

“Vehicle owners know what to do and when to check their vehicles. However, the problem is that Nigerians keep managing and

managing themselves to death. We want every one to be a beneficiary of this project, “he stressed.

He said that previous initiatives to jumpstart the computerised vehicle driven system was frustrated by defaulters, who resorted to cutting the corners by petitioning the Independent and Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to apply extreme rules about the operation of the company.

He said some states in the country including Lagos, Anambra, Enugu, Abia, Niger and Sokoto are on the verge of commencing the computerised system having signed working agreement to benefit from the operation.

Obayando acknowledged that the project is in tandem with the Abuja masterplan of linking up the Federal Capital with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) backbone as it applies all over the world, noting that this is the only modern way of cubing vices and criminalities in the capital city of Africa’s most populous nation.
