Commercial motorists in Ekiti have raised their voices loud to the Government to help them reduce the cost of the fees they are required to pay for the collection of new driver’s licences and the renewal of expired ones.

Someof the motorists who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ikole-Ekiti said that it has become difficult for them to afford the exorbitant fees charged by the Ekiti Internal Revenue Service on driver’s license.


Mr Gbenga Ogunleye, a driver said that it has become difficult for him to renew his driver’s license because it was too expensive to do so. He said that fees for the renewal of the driver’s licence have gone up from N5,500 to N 8,500, and appealed to the state government to consider them also.

Ige noted that many commercial vehicle drivers do not have valid driver’s licences and so prefer using old number plates until they can afford the cost of a new ones.

Oni appealed to governor Kayode Fayemi to reduce the cost of both the number plates and driver’s license.

A private vehicle owner, Mr Ayodeji Ojo, said that the cost of getting a new driver’s licence in Ekiti has become too expensive for him, and appealed to the state government to bring down the fees and make it affordable for all drivers.
