The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has issued a disclaimer saying the number plate on a vehicle purported to have been gifted to the Acting General Manager of GHOne TV, Nana Aba Anamoah is fake.
According to the Deputy Chief Executive of DVLA, Prince Opoku Edusei, the number plate on the black Range Rover was not authorised by his outfit.
He disclosed that the registered vehicle in their system with the number plate GR 2050-20 is that of a Nissan Rogue car and not the Range Rover.
Speaking exclusively to ABC News on the issue of duplicated number plates in the country, he said “They say in every situation there’s only the truth and the lie. There’s no way DVLA will register two vehicles with the same number. We’ve conducted our own investigations and realised that the vehicle that bears that number, one of them which is the black Range Rover is not a registered vehicle in this country. So the number on the vehicle is not authorised or issued by the DVLA. The rogue is in our system and duly registered and so that is the number that has been assigned. So obviously the range rover is not registered. We don’t have such in our system.”
He further revealed that the issue has been handed to the Ghana Police Service to begin investigations to bring to book all culprits behind it.
“We’ve requested the police to go into it. We have done our own in house investigations and we’ve realised that that is not legally licensed vehicle so we’ve asked for further investigations and I’m sure that another statement will come out to that effect to know what the DVLA is doing about it.”
The Deputy DVLA boss therefore advised the ace broadcast journalist to visit their office to register the vehicle or face legal actions.
