Federal Government To Ban Okada Nationwide


"Commercial motorcycles popularly known as ‘Okada’ may soon be banned throughout the country.
The proposal for the ban was made by the National Council on Transport after its annual conference in Enugu State and endorsed by the Minister of Transport, Sen. Idris Umar.

A statement from the Federal Ministry of Transport on Saturday evening stated that the ban of commercial motorcycle was one of the measures proposed towards adequate provision of safety and secure transportation in Nigeria.

It said the recommendation was contained in a statement of the week long meeting which had in attendance all the state commissioners of transport, permanent secretaries, directors and officials in the federal and state ministries of transport across the country.

    “All states and the Federal Capital Territory have therefore been advised to establish a public transport system that ensure strict regulation of the operation of public passenger transportation system through a well-articulated management system for enhanced safety, security, effective and efficient service delivery,” the statement said.

Please don't forget to ask the States to provide jobs to absorb all those who will loose their livelihood as a result of the ban!! Always doing things upside down. Am sure one of has just finish a factory in Japan, China or India that produces Keke NAPEP....we know ourselves too well
