Guess Where Banned Commercial Tricycle Owners In Lagos Are Planning To Relocate To!

Following the recent ban on Okada and Tricycle aka 'Keke Marwa' from operating in various local government areas in the South-Western part of Nigeria, precisely, Lagos state, till further notice, many people living in Lagos which is the commercial capital of Nigeria, will be affected as they use motorcycle and tricycle daily to go about their daily lives.
Over 21 million people live in Lagos, according to the National Population Commission of Nigeria.
The present worry of many commuters in the city said the government is yet to provide alternatives before they announce the ban on Monday, January 20, 2020.
The truth of the matter is that this move will affect many people!
However, an encounter with some tricycle riders opened up some concluded decisions. They had revealed plans to relocate to Mowe-Ibafo axis in Ogun state.
Their decision was made on the ground that it was the closest to Lagos where businesses are fast thriving. More so, the government there is not as tough as Lagos state.
Let's see where this will lead, because Mowe -Ibafo residents may just be ready to fight Lagosians coming into their terrain to share their businesses.
Many years back, after Ex-Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola banned motorcycles in Lagos state, many of the riders relocated to Mowe and met with serious antagonisms, ranging from stopping their activities as they identified their motorbike plates as ones with Lagos numbers!
Will Lagos state under Governor Sanwo- Olu revert, or will this law lead to a mass exodus of the bikers to Mowe -Ibafo as said by one of them?
Till then, let's keep our fingers crossed!

  1. The idea of banning keke or bike, is not ideal in anyway, how will those families cope, not that there are too many job opportunities available for them to engage in
