N25,000 Replacement Fee For Faded Plate Numbers Justifiable, Legal, VIO Tells Motorists

The Spokesman, of the Directorate of Road Traffic Services (DRTS), FCT, Mr Kalu Emetu, says the N25,000 the service charges motorists for the replacement of faded number plates is legal and justifiable based on its mandate.

Emetu made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja.

He said that what people failed to understand was that there was no way the agency would replace faded numbplatformsors for motorists free of charge after they have used them for some time.

The question people normally ask is, why should we charge motorists or ask them to pay a fine for what they got from us?

“You see, everything in life has its life span. A situation where somebody uses a number plate say two to three years, not minding the way the person was using it, and gets faded.
