The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has indicated its readiness to collaborate with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in a bid to curb the proliferation of identity forgery and fight the menace of global money laundering.
“We believe it was possible for people to open multiple bank accounts in Nigeria using different names because they can access multiple driver’s licence. That can be stopped if we use the new driver’s license.
“The implication of that is that the EFCC should get the entire banks’ customers to recertify their account details, working with the existing drivers licenses used for opening bank account. This means that any bank customer that does not have the new driver’s licence ought not to have an account opened beginning this year. In that way, people with multiple accounts using the old driver’s license will be forced to close them down,” he said.
