In an effort to ensure efficient collection of data and forestall fraud, the Anambra State Government will, on Tuesday, officially launch a new card-based vehicle registration and renewal license system.
The initiative is in line with Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s vision of transforming Anambra State through technology and process optimization.
The new system is an improvement on the current paper-based license issued to vehicle owners upon registration and renewal of their vehicles in the state.
The card-based license will come with several features, including advanced security measures, QR code, easier verification, and authentication.
Executive Director, operations & other taxes of the state government’s consultant on the implementation of the system, Dr Christian Madubuko, disclosed that the move is a significant step towards modernizing the state’s motor vehicle administration system and promoting road safety.
The new system will improve the accuracy of data collection, facilitate traffic management, and reduce incidences of fraud, especially in the areas of vehicle registration and renewal and enhances enforcement.
The Anambra State Government recognizes that implementing such a system will require collaboration with relevant stakeholders in the transportation sector, including the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO), Police, Army, and other road and traffic enforcement agents in Nigeria.
He further disclosed that the Executive Chairman of the Anambra State Internal Revenue Service, Mr. Richard Madiebo, a seasoned IGR expert with years of experience, is leading the significant growth of IGR in Anambra State.
