Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Akinfesi gave the Wikipedia definition, along with reasons for the device.

"A speed limiter is a governor used to limit the top speed of a vehicle. Our members will comply with the speed limiter because it is a safety precaution to reduce frequent road mishaps.

Most of the accidents are caused by speeding, reckless driving and careless overtaking. So, if there is a warning caution device attached to a vehicle, then to me, it is a welcome idea. We will make sure that all our members buy the device and fix it in their vehicles," he said.
