According to the former governor, he used the motorcycle at Ikeja, the state capital, due to traffic.
Fayose was enroute to the airport when he was stranded in traffic and decided to use a motorcycle to avoid missing his flight.
Motorcycles are very common in Lagos State. It is a popular means of transportation in the megacity. Lagosians use motorcycles to beat the traffic gridlock in the city.
The Lagos State Government had earlier prohibited the use of motorcycles in some selected Local Government Areas and highways, including Ikeja, where Fayose was spotted.
Former governor Fayose violated an important law when he rode a motorcycle in Ikeja on Tuesday.
The Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Law of 2020 prohibited the use of motorcycles (Okada) in 15 local government areas of the state.
The transport sector reform law of 2018 can be traced to the state road traffic law (2012).
Section 18 (23)b of the law says a motorcycle rider and his passenger on the prohibited routes are liable to six months in jail.
This means that Fayose violated the law when he rode on a motorcycle in Ikeja.
