The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Dr. Willie Obiano has inaugurated the newly established Computerized Vehicle Testing Service centre, which was done in partnership with TEMPLESYC  LTD saying that it was one of his projects to ensure safety of lives and property of Ndi Anambra.
                During the inauguration, recently at Awka Governor Obiano said that Computerized Vehicle Testing Service Centre (CVTSC) which was the first of its kind in the whole of South East and South South geopolitical zones of Nigeria was just one out of the three CVTSCs his administration intends to establish, saying that others will be located at Onitsha and Nnewi in due time to ensure proximity to car owners and minimize carnage on our roads.
                “I am very delighted this afternoon to commission this modern vehicle clinic. This is the type of thing you see in Big cities like USA and we decided to bring it down to this place. One of my main duties as a Governor is to protect lives and property of indigenes. It is not only to drive away kidnappers, armed robbers and other miscreants which I have successfully done but also to minimize the rate of road accidents in our state. One of the major killers of our people I have observed is road accidents,” he said.
                Governor Obiano further revealed that about 100 Vehicles Inspection Officers (VIO) will be employed in the state to ensure that there was adequate man power to inspect vehicle fitness.
“We are going to increase the VIOs by additional 100 persons. If your vehicle is not fit to ply our roads, just come to this clinic. The importance of this clinic will not be over emphasized. We’re going to enforce it to make sure that we minimize the rate of road accidents; the doctors are here to check the problems of your vehicles and rectify them”, said Obiano
                Moreso, Governor Obiano said that he had equipped the Federal Road Safety Corps with speed testing gadgets to monitor speed of vehicles of drivers passing through Anambra State roads, adding that he has provided alcohol detecting devices to track defaulters who drink while driving.
                “This is an important landmark project. I encourage everybody to come here. We have intensified the patching of potholes on roads, road decongestion and I have equally equipped the FRSC with speed testing gadgets and Alcohol detecting devices. This is not to witch hunt anybody but to ensure that lives of road users are protected. This administration is not interested in the IGR that will come from here but rather that vehicles plying our roads are healthy,” said Obiano.
                Earlier in his address the chairman of ANSIPPA, Igwe Cyril Nweze of Umuoji said that the three CVTS would gulp about 1.6 billion naira, adding that it would create jobs, reduce accidents on our roads, reduce pollution of the environment by vehicles not road worthy and ensure road decongestions. He further called on other investors to come and invest in Anambra State.
                The Commissioner for Roads, Rail and Water transportation, Princess Chinwe Nwebili said that her ministry will enforce that road users test their vehicles and get certification from the facility before issuing them driver’s license t o ensure road safety.
                The Md of Templesyc Ltd, Segun Obayendo said that the project was what the United Nations has declared as part of the road safety pillars. He thanked Governor Obiano for being a detribalized Nigerian and one who placed safety above IGR.
                FRSC Commander of Anambra State, Sunday Ajayi employed Ndi Anambra to use the facility to ensure their vehicles were road worthy and thanked Governor Obiano for earlier providing vehicle recovering equipment to ensure road decongestion.
