Barring any last-minute change, Gov Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State would ban Okada riders in the state.
This was disclosed on Thursday by Gov Abiodun’s Special Adviser on Media, Hon. Remmy Hazzan.
Hazzan, while addressing newsmen after the launch of his book, ‘Wisdom Nugget for Daily Living’ in Abeokuta, said okada riders would be phased out from Ogun State gradually.
He reechoed that Okada riders, who were banned from Lagos State, have no place in Ogun.
The Special Adviser said transportation by Okada has no place in the national policy, describing it as a menace.
He emphasised that the riders would be taken off the streets of Ogun, saying, however, that it will be a gradual process.
“Ogun State is open, but if it is about Okada, maybe you need to look somewhere else. It then doesn’t mean those who are already in the business in Ogun are cast away yet.
“We have a broad national policy that does not support that (Okada riding), which means we will do something that is a phased gradual removal of this menace from our streets. But it will be gradual, it won’t be radical,” Remmy Hazzan said.
Recall that FELLOW PRESS reported how Lagos State banned motorcyclists (Okada) and tricycle (Keke) from plying major roads and has reiterated its decision not to go back.
