Former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State Jimi Agbaje has condemned the ban of Okada and Tricycle operators on some routes in the centre of excellence.

The opposition leader described the ban by the state government as counterproductive and will be difficult to enforce.

He added that the ban will have negative ripple effects on the economy of the state with so many already out of work and cause inconvenience to commuters.

In a statement on his verified Twitter handle, Agbaje said Okada and Tricycle operators in the state have thus far regulated themselves and should be allowed to continue operations.

“A Lagos for the 21st century needs proper planning. The reasons for the ban on commercial motorcycles and tricycles by the Lagos State Government are noted. But what about the people?

“My view is that such an outright ban on major routes will be counterproductive and difficult to enforce. It will also have negative ripple effects on the economy with so many already out of work & cause inconvenience to commuters.

“The formal operators that have thus far regulated themselves should be allowed to continue, with stringent regulation and enforcement of traffic laws.”
