Our attention has been drawn to the indiscriminate and unauthorized use of official Abia State Government vehicle plate Numbers by former public servants and former appointees of the Governor without valid authorization.
We wish to strongly advise that all former public office holders who were issued such numbers during the period of their service to the state are expected to return such plate numbers to the Transport Officer in
Government house Umuahia immediately after their tenure expires.
Also, the covering of plate numbers by unauthorized individuals and former office holders is illegal and such persons will be prosecuted by law enforcement agents on apprehension. Proper authorization should be obtained from the office of the Chief Security Officer to the Governor, the State’s Head of Service or the NIGERIA Police Force before any individual can cover official plate numbers.
Affected individuals are advised to do the needful immediately or face the consequences of the law.
Chief Security Officer to the Governor
