Nigerians are fund of joking with almost everything. The Nigerian vehicle registration plate also called number plate was introduced in 1992 under the government of General Sani Abacha.
Below is an image of a typical Nigerian vehicle number plate.
The plate number is generally white, it carries the Nigerian national flag or the national coat of arms at the upper left hand corner. The state name in which the plate number is issued is boldly written at the top center and the state slogan beneath, and then "Federal Republic of Nigeria" is written at the bottom.
The unique plate combination itself is in the format ABC-123DE. The first three letters indicate the local government area the vehicle was registered, this is followed by three digits and two letters and a background consisting of an outline of the Nigerian map.
But some Nigerians have taken the number plate thing to another level. Below are some hilarious plate numbers people are using.
What do you think about the owners of those vehicles? Do you think they are should to be arrested for using plate numbers not they are not supposed to, or do you think they should be allowed to do what ever they like since they own the car? What is your take?
