The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has finally commented on the controversy surrounding the registration of a Black Range Rover gifted Nana Aba Anamoah.
The media personality celebrated her 42nd birthday on Friday, June 19, 2020, and in marking the day, she was gifted a Black Range Rover by an unidentified person.
The car driven by her friend Empress Jamila, a fashion stylist, to her workplace, GhOne TV, caught a lot of buzz on Twitter. But one thing that caught the attention was the number plate of the luxurious car; GR2050-20.
The controversy was heightened when it was alleged a Nissan Rogue Sports Utility had been spotted in town with the same number plate.
Reacting to the controversy in a statement copied to GhanaWeb, the DVLA has announced that the number plate on the vehicle purported to have been gifted to the Acting General Manager of GHOne TV, Nana Aba Anamoah is fake.
According to the management of DVLA, the registered vehicle in their system with the number plate GR 2050-20 is that of a Nissan Rogue Sports Utility vehicle and not the Range Rover.
“Checks in the system indicate that the Black Rage Rover has not been registered.
“The authority wishes to remind vehicle owners and the general public that a person shall not drive a motor vehicle or trailer unless it is registered,” the Authority said in a statement copied to JoyNews.
Below is the full statement:
The Authority added that it has commenced investigation into why the two vehicles have the same licence plate number.
“We, however, urge the owner of the Range Rover SUV to visit any of our offices to regularize the process for a genuine registration number plate.”
