The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has cried out over the refusal of former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and about 219 lawmakers who failed to return to the National Assembly to return their official vehicle number plates.

The FRSC corps had petitioned the Clerk of the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, to retrieve the vehicle identification plates from about 69 senators and 151 members of the House of Representatives who are nor part of the 9th National Assembly.

Speaking on the development, the FRSC Public Education Officer, Corps Commander Bisi Kareem, said, “We have written to the clerk of the National Assembly to direct former lawmakers to return official number plates issued to them. We expect the clerk to reach out to them; we cannot get across to them ourselves, that was why we wrote to the National Assembly about it.”

Recall that forty-two of the senators lost out in October last year at their parties’ primaries while others were defeated at the National Assembly elections.

Apart from Saraki (Peoples Democratic Party, Kwara Central), others expected to return their official vehicle number plates are Godswill Akpabio (All Progressives Congress, Akwa Ibom West); Nazif Gamawa (PDP, Bauchi); Rafiu Ibrahim (PDP, Kwara South); Tayo Alasoadura (APC, Ondo Central) and Yele Omogunwa (Ondo South), among others.

However, The Punch reports that many former lawmakers and ex-officials were still using the official number plates.
