Furthermore, 'Regulations 39(9) of the NRTR 2012 provides that 'All private and commercial vehicles shall as from the commencement of these regulations have on them Vehicle Identification Number Plates referred to in this regulation, and it shall be an offence for any vehicle not to have the said Identification Number Plates.' Vehicles in this context include motorcycles and tricycles.
It will be recalled that following the protests over the publication by FRSC of its intention to commence the arrest and prosecution of drivers or owners of vehicles using any number plate obtained under the repealed National Road Transport Regulation (NRTR) 2004 by 1st October, 2013; Mr Emmanuel Ofoegbu instituted an action against FRSC at the Federal High Court in Lagos in FHC/CS/1332/13 Emmanuel Ofoegbu Vs FRSC.
As a result of the ruling by the court below, FRSC appealed the Judgment in the Court of Appeal and on October 31, 2014 the court sitting in Lagos, unanimously held that FRSC had statutory power in line with the 1999 Constitution under the FRSC (Establishment) Act 2007 and the NRTR 2012 to regulate the use of number plates and to set deadlines for change-over to the new ones as provided for in the NRTR 2012.
