The Governor of Enugu State Peter Mbah has banned the unauthorized use of vehicles with tinted glass in the state.
The ban was officially announced through a public service announcement issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Chidiebere Onyia, on behalf of the governor. The primary objective of this ban is to tackle the nefarious activities of kidnappers and other criminal elements operating within the state.
According to the announcement, the ban will come into effect after a four-week grace period, starting from the date of this notice. Subsequently, enforcement will commence on Monday, September 4, 2023.
Governor Mbah’s administration aims to give vehicle owners with tinted glasses sufficient time to take appropriate action. Specifically, those who did not obtain Police Tinted Permits before the suspension of its issuance by the Nigeria Police Force on June 7, 2021, will be granted this grace period. During this time, they are expected to remove or replace the tinted glasses if they were factory-fitted, in accordance with the provisions of the law.
Stringent measures will be enforced against defaulting vehicles. The enforcement taskforce will impound such vehicles, and they will only be released to their owners after the tinted glasses are removed or replaced, and the specified fines are paid.
Governor Mbah reiterated that the ban is primarily aimed at curbing the activities of criminals and enhancing the overall security and safety of the people and residents of Enugu State.
In this regard, he sought the understanding and cooperation of the general public in ensuring the success of this security measure.
