He also asked the Regional Directors to note that the vehicles are by no means personal vehicles for District Directors and as such under no circumstances should they be misapplied. Managers have been entreated to ensure good safety and regular maintenance of these vehicles.
The Director General assured that allocation letters of the vehicles will soon be sent to the managers, indicating the comprehensive insurance premium payable and the date for collection.
