Lagos Begins Compulsory Computerized Vehicle Inspection



Lagos state government has announced commencement of computerized vehicle inspection service to determine the road-worthiness of vehicles in the state.

The new inspection service enables road users to know the status of their vehicles by going through series of tests.
Managing Director of Lagos State Computerized Vehicle Inspection Service (LACVIS), Segun Obayendo, noted that “We were unpopular when we started official operation in March 2017.”

“We encountered quite a lot of cynicism and skepticism as people had issues copping with the change in the price for inspection or wondered whether their vehicle will fail or pass.

“Inspections save lives of the drivers and other road users from accidents occasioned by mechanical failure and LACVIS computerized inspection process helps to detect mechanical faults before they become disaster on the highways.

“Our computerized inspection program ensures that vehicle owners are pro-actively contributing to a cleaner and healthier environment with an emission test. Vehicle emissions continue to be a major source of urban air pollution.

“However, the test checks the emission level of exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons and others from a vehicle. If everyone chooses to be compliant, what we will have is improved air quality and other health and economic benefit.”

In his remarks, General Manager, LACVIS, Segun Ogunnaike, said “in the next three years, there will be at least 57 computerized inspection centers across the state.

“The idea is that before any vehicle is issued the road worthiness certificate, such vehicle will have to undergo inspection.”

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
