I don’t know if anyone has seen this - www.lsmvaapvs.org. Powered by - Lagos State Ministry of Science & Technology.
ANYONE one can now query your plate number and retrieve your First name & Last Name.
I reached out to the ‘solutions architect’ (thanks to whois.com) who gave a flimsy excuse stating
“Your inquiry should be directed to the Lagos State MVAA office. Besides, the information listed there is public domain information. Also, it isn’t actually stored on the server. You can also access it via the askniid.org website. It is used by law enforcement to verify details about your vehicle.”
Really ? law enforcement ( with no controlled access ?)
NIID - http://askniid.org/checkpolicy.aspx has such query system but were decent enough to withold personal details.
Why am i sharing this ? One of us may know someone in Lagos state government that can make sure the name aspect is removed OR better still reach out to lagos state government on all channels till some action is taken.
Hope to hear some effective proposals .
