Efe Ofobruku,accompanied by other members of the committee,added that the public hearing was to seek the views of the people relating to the proposed law, disclosing that his committee is expected to put together a report that has the inputs of all key stakeholders.

"The Commissioner,Directorate of Transport,Mr.Vincent Uduaghan,said that the state government was always concerned about the safety of motorists in the state,saying that the proposed law would reduce cases of motor vehicle accidents on the roads.

"Relying on the statements of experts, Mr. Uduaghan stated that many road traffic accidents in recent times were traceable to the activities of untrained mechanics or the use of fake and substandard motor spare parts.The Transport Commissioner also observed that some notorious people use unregistered motor mechanic workshops as a safe haven to perpetuate crime,disclosing that there were instances where law enforcement agencies traced stolen vehicles to such places where they are cannibalised and sold as spare parts.

"Mr. Uduaghan said that the proposed law will bring sanity to the roads,eliminate quackery in the automobile industry and restore confidence to vehicle users.Others who spoke,including officials of DESTMA,NATA,NURTW,as well as individuals and organisations highlighted the importance of the bill and stressed the need to accommodate the interest of all stakeholders in the proposed law.The committee is expected to submit its report next week.
