The Ondo State Government has commenced registration of all commercial taxi drivers in the state.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Special Duties and Strategy, Doyin Odebowale said that drivers without valid driver’s license will no longer be allowed to operate in the state.

According to him, these steps were taken to guarantee the safety of the people of the state.

He added that it is mandatory for all commercial taxi drivers to register at the State Information Technology Agency, where their bio-data will be captured.

“There will be no registration by proxy. You must come with a driver’s licence. This must be done within three months,” he stated.

According to him, drivers must pay N2,000 for registration form, before they would be allowed to operate.
