Okada Ban: Lagos Govt Records 85% Compliance

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Shola Jejeloye, the Chairman, Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Unit (Taskforce), says there is 85 per cent compliance with the commercial motorcycle ban in the last three days.

Jejeloye said this on Friday in Ikeja, while speaking with newsmen, during the crushing of the commercial motorcycles, popularly known as Okada, which was confiscated during enforcement.

He said that the enforcement of the ban would continue, so as to ensure the sanity of the environment.

According to him, the enforcement of the ban did just begin on Wednesday, June 1, but has been in force since Feb. 1, 2020.

”Since then, we have been on it. It is just that people believe in violating the law, which I don’t think is good enough in a cosmopolitan city like this. But since June 1, there have been more than 85 per cent compliance.

“85 per cent compliance in the sense that we don’t see Okada on the roads, on the expressways any longer. The number has drastically reduced.

”They might be of the belief that the first one week of the enforcement will be thorough; after one week we are going to relax, anyway, we will watch and see.

”I am passing this message to them that from next week, we will do more intense enforcement. Even those areas we cannot get to this week, we are going to extend. So another phase will start on Monday.

”These three first days of enforcement is just to test-run it, to check the number of compliance, then the sustainability plan is the next phase, which we are going to enter on Monday,” he said.
