Lagosians Call Out Governor Sanwo-Olu Over Okada And Keke Ban

Lagosians are presently expressing their displeasure over the ban of motorbikes (Okada) and tricycles (Keke napeps) in certain areas of the state. Residents of the state have called out the Governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for taking back on his promises.

Last year, the Governor was present at the Covenant Christian Centre annual Independence Day event tagged “The Platform”. At the event, Governor Sanwo-Olu applauded the bike hailing system and stated how the government plans to regulate its activities.

However, Lagosians are now stating that they have been scammed by the Governor, who has gone back on his promises.

 

Today is the first working day since the ban started. Twitter users have revealed that the crowds at bus stops have increased, and there are no bikes to convey people to their places of work.

Meanwhile, some people feel that the policy will be lifted after a few months, and that is all hearsay. As such, we have to look at alternative ways to live with the policy while it stands.
