Government will devise a mechanism to flush out middle men, popularly known as goro boys, who sometimes issue fake licenses at the various Driver and Vehicle License Authority (DVLA) centres across the country, the Minister Nominee for Transport, Kwaku Ofori-Asiamah has promised.
This move, he said, will be enforced through sensitization and the intervention of the enforcement agencies.
“The issue of goro boys is an issue that confronts every service seeker.
I have said that so long as there is human interface in doing some of these businesses, it will create an avenue for them so one thing I will seek to do is to advise them [DVLA] to go for full automation, technology and constant education. We need to educate the general public about the existence of these goro boys and the need for them to be very careful and also try to bring in the enforcement agency,”
The DVLA in 2014 complained about the influx of Goro Boys at the Authority.
The Authority explained that, the Goro boys interrupt their work by harassing and intercepting documents from clients supposedly to be sent to DVLA officials.
The Authority therefore pledged to get rid of them by clamping down on their activities.
Speaking during his vetting at Parliament House a few hours ago , Mr. Ofori -Asiamah said his Ministry will also devise a mechanism to ensure that roads registered by the DVLA are road worthy.
