Former political office holders and retirees in Ogun State risk being arrested should they fail to return government number plates in their possession.
This is as the government issued directive that all unauthorized number plates in possession of public officials be returned to the office of the Head of Service without further delay.
A statement by the Permanent Secretary, Bureau of Service Matters, Dahunsi Ogunleye, on Friday confirmed that security agents have been directed to arrest private vehicles with government number plates henceforth.
Ogunleye directed that all number plates affixed to unserviceable vehicles be removed, adding that the ones with retirees and ex-political office holders be returned immediately.
Meanwhile, all accounting officers have been told to furnish the Office of the Head of Service with details of allocated official vehicles, with government number plates for record purpose.
