They said charity begins at home,if you can try to implement this for Nigerians moving abroad,why don’t your organization start with those driving in Nigeria first?The problem with Nigerian drivers is not the problem of knowing how to drive but obeying and abiding by driving laws Make obtaining one in Nigeria stress free and seamless first
Nonsense even you as a road safety officer can you travel out there and get recognised will they even allow you control pedestrians on their walk way sef or work as an agbero, this is just another scam to charge 100k for license.

Before announcing what you can’t accomplish, you must understand what you’re talking about. In USA, every state has their requirements to issue Drivers License which has nothing to do with Federal Government so your so called License will not affect anything in USA. Why is there no agency of government one can hold in high esteem None what so ever😩😩😩😩😩😩😩
lol. inconsequential. what has driving licence got to do with US and Europe? even if you get that naija licence you can't drive without going through driving test in those countries. Having one will only give you opportunity to skip test stages. Not a guarantee though. this country doesn't have a direction anymore
Idleness... Confusion... Who needs one una won find means to extort more bah

Hmmm... Ndi Oshi, for what ? you don’t think they are like you that don’t have other means of transportation apart from driving Good move Another misguided priorities. What will be the functions of the Nigerian drivers license in Europe, when they're obtained in Nigeria without going through the test process. Many Nigerians fail driving tests in Europe and US despite years of driving in Nigeria...
Really? They should focus abeg. They want avenue for more revenue. When you get there, you'll certainly still have to pass their driving test before issuance of license which cancels this one.
