Hard Times For Okada Riders In Ogun State As Governor Abiodun Bans Okada Riders In Ogun Highways

The Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has told Okada riders in the state to stop plying the highways. The Governor made this announcement as a result of the dangers involved in riding motorcycles in highways. Riding motorcycles in highways is dangerous to the rider and their numerous passengers.

Governor Abiodun made this known while inaugurating the Ogun State Transport Master Plan Committee in his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Ogun State. The Governor said that motorcycles were never meant to operate on highways. According to the Governor, the main purpose for the continued existence of motorcycles was to move people from the interior parts of the town to the major roads.

Motorcyclists in Ogun State readily operate in highways and expressways. Such practices will definitely put the riders life and that of his passengers at high risk. His first Tak for his newly inaugurated Ogun State master plan committee members led by the State Commissioner for Transportation, Engr Gbenga Dairo, was to formulate a strategy on how to stop Okada riders from plying the highways.

Okada riders in the state will be affected by the decision of Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun, but the decision is commendable considering the risks involved in allowing Okada riders to continue operating in highways.
