Edo: Ministry of Transportation Special Announcement

July 15, 2022.


In a bid to stem the worsening security challenges in the State, which in most
cases are facilitated by the use of motorcycles, tricycles and motor vehicles,
the Edo State Government wishes to use this medium to inform the general
public and to seriously warn motorcycle and tricycle riders in the State that the
ban on the use of motorcycles in Benin metropolis and restriction of tricycles
to suburban areas is still very much in force.

Similarly, the Edo State Government has directed that henceforth the use
of unregistered (unlicensed) vehicle of any category in the State is hereby
prohibited. By this announcement, drivers/owners of unregistered and
unpaintedbuses and taxis especially Toyota Yaris used for commercial purposes
are mandated to register their vehicles on or before 1st of August, 2022.

Furthermore, the State has constituted a Taskforce comprising security
Agencies, Edo State Traffic Management Agency (EDSTMA) and officials
of the Edo State Internal Revenue Service (EIRS), Public Works Volunteers
(PUWOV) and oficials of Edo State Security Network to enforce this directive.

Engr. Osasere M. Evbuomwan
Honourable Commissioner,
Ministry of Transportation
