The Shared Prosperity administration of His Excellency the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma has continued in his reform to sanitize and improve on existing systems in the state for the safety and economic advantage of Imolites / residents.
In a bid to curb crimes and improve on statistical data on commercial transportation within the state, the Imo State government has launched a vehicle registration/ verification portal which is publicly accessible at https://imocitytransport.com/verify
This reform seek to tackle various areas of concern vis-a-vis distress, security and others. All commercial operators within the State, inclusive of haulage; trucks; lorries and tankers, will all be captured and enrolled into the database and an identification number issued – clearly printed on the vehicle.
All that is required to verify any commuter is the identification number in this format “Im00363A” and the particulars of the vehicle is displayed including the owners details and the driver’s details. So in time of distress, it would serve as a lead for security agency to wade in; should a passenger disembark and probably forgot an item, the driver’s contact can be pulled for communication.
This application of technology in transportation is one step too many in the right direction towards redefining the system within the state. It would create a hard time for perpetration of crime with commercial vehicles.
The 3R government is leveraging on the advantages of statistical figures in decision making by creating this database of all commercial vehicle owners and drivers for greater purposes of social benefits decisions.
