The Lagos State Government on Tuesday said there was no change in the cost of processing vehicle particulars and application for number plates.
A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Kehinde Bamigbetan, said the clarification became necessary in response to enquiries by members of the public who thought there was an increase in the charges relating to the motor vehicle administration.
Bamigbetan said anyone with evidence of any increase in motor registration rates from any of the official centres managed by the Lagos State Motor Vehicle Administration Authority (MVAA) should report to the government.
He said, “Although, the cost of maintaining the roads and expanding infrastructure which ease the operations of vehicles is enormous, the Lagos State Government will continue to bear the burden of keeping the roads good and safe for all users.”
He said some mischief-makers were exploiting the new Land Use Charge Law, which sought to raise more money for the provision of public infrastructure, to misinform the public.
