Report owner of 'HAMID 1 18' to police - Mustapha Hamid appeals

Minister of Information, Mustapha Abdul-Hamid appealed to the general public to report a vehicle with customized number plate “HAMID1 18” to the nearest police station when spotted.

The picture of the white 4×4 vehicle which is being circulated on social media was purported to belong to the Information Minister days after pictures of a V8 with a customized registration number belonging to Deputy Health Minister, Tina Mensah emerged.

In a statement, Mr Abdul-Hamid to debunked rumour of ownership of the car, said checks with the Driver Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) revealed that the vehicle registration number does not exist thereby making the registration fake which is a criminal offence.

The statement read; “My attention has been drawn to a picture of a white 4×4 wheel vehicle with registration number 'HAMID 1 18' being circulated on social media purporting to be my vehicle.

“I wish to state the following:

1. That I do not own the said vehicle.

2. That I have never owned or used a white 4×4 wheel vehicle.

3. That anyone who knows me well, will know that I will never customise a vehicle registration number either in my name or otherwise.

4. That checks done at the Driver Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) reveals that the said vehicle registration number does not exist in their system.

5. That any person who sees the said vehicle should report same to the nearest police station since the registration is fake which is criminal.”
