The Nassarawa State Governor, Engr. Abdullahi A. Sule, has commissioned the first computerised vehicle inspection center in Lafia, Nassarawa State.
Governor Abdullahi A. Sule, who presided over the commissioning exercise yesterday, said establishing a Computerised Vehicle Inspection Centre in Nassarawa is one of the milestones of his administration.
According to the Governor, the new computerized scheme would help the State to reduce accidents and carnages on the highways.
The Governor also appreciated the management of Temple Group Limited, led by the Group Managing Director, Prince Segun Obayendo and praised their dedication and commitment to promoting safety across the country.
Obayendo, who is also the President, Chartered Institute of Transport Administration (CIOTA) Nigeria, stressed that with the Computerised Vehicle Inspection Service, subjectivity of vehicle testing would become a thing of the past as the new mode of inspection is more objective and gives more accurate detection of defects in vehicles.
The event had in attendance several high profile guests including the Managing Director of Temple SYC, Mrs Ifeoma George-Oji, government functionaries, agencies, among many others.
With the commissioning, Nassarawa joins the list of states who have adopted the Computerised Vehicle Inspection Service to determine the road worthiness status of vehicles such as Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Kwara, Niger, Delta, Akwaibom, Crossriver, Kano, Kogi, Rivers, Ebonyi and Anambra.
