The Government of Niger State has banned the operations of Okada (commercial motorcyclists), in Minna, the state capital, from henceforth.
The government in a statement made available to African Examiner said adequate arrangements have been made to cushion the effect of the ban.
The statement explained that the state Ministry of Transportation has now taken full delivery of 1000 units of Mahindra Tricycles (KEKEN TALBA) in addition to 8 units of 18-seater buses and 12 units of 100 capacity Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) buses that have already been put on the roads to ease transportation problems in the state capital.
It added that the newly purchased tricycles would be distributed to Okada operators through the Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle Riders Association of Nigeria (ACOMORAN).
