The Cross River State Chief Vehicle Inspection Officer (CVIO), Engr. Paul Bepeh, has advised members of the public to do the right things at all times irrespective of their positions.
Speaking in his office when he received the Obong of Calabar, His Eminence, Edidem Ekpo O. Abasi-Olu V, and the state Head of Service, Mrs. Mary -Theresa Ikwen, in his office for physical driving test and road sign drills under the new National Driver’s License Scheme.
He said the example of the first class Monarch in Nigeria and the State’s number one civil servant, shows that nobody is above the law and called on other highly placed members of the public to follow the example of the two personalities, rather than asking for exemption from physical driving test and fair knowledge of the high way codes.
The chief VIO said the essence of physical driving test and drills on high way codes is to ensure that everyone behind the steering knows the road signs and veritable process of minimizing accidents and carriages on our roads.
He lauded the Obong of Calabar and the State head of Service for showing good examples worthy of emulation.
Bepeh said in no distant time, his men will hit the road with the expectations that drivers would have complied with the requirements of the new drivers licence and the high way codes that will allow them to drive vehicles on Nigeria roads.
