Ogun Government Set To Ban Okada Riders by Islie: 11:02am On Feb 07, 2020
Barring any last-minute change, Gov Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State would ban Okada riders in the state.

This was disclosed on Thursday by Gov Abiodun’s Special Adviser on Media, Hon. Remmy Hazzan.

Hazzan, while addressing newsmen after the launch of his book, ‘Wisdom Nugget for Daily Living’ in Abeokuta, said okada riders would be phased out from Ogun State gradually.

He reechoed that Okada riders, who were banned from Lagos State, have no place in Ogun.

The Special Adviser said transportation by Okada has no place in the national policy, describing it as a menace.

He emphasised that the riders would be taken off the streets of Ogun, saying, however, that it will be a gradual process.

“Ogun State is open, but if it is about Okada, maybe you need to look somewhere else. It then doesn’t mean those who are already in the business in Ogun are cast away yet.

“We have a broad national policy that does not support that (Okada riding), which means we will do something that is a phased gradual removal of this menace from our streets. But it will be gradual, it won’t be radical,” Remmy Hazzan said.

This one is mature, wise and sound. Not a stogee,notice he's emphasis on " phases " implying there's going to be a process to be followed through with.


Not the one here who understand very little about projection execution and process who doesn't know the difference between a democratic structure and a totalitarian institution.


A product of an undemocratic, autocratic franchise and cultist platform would never appreciate democratic principles angry

Why ban without an alternative
Re: Ogun Government Set To Ban Okada Riders by Chevronstaff: 2:53pm On Feb 07, 2020
Some countries look for possibilities of creating jobs for their citizens but in Nigeria, we transgress those little opportunities..
Lagos/Ogun state Okada Ban will make thousands of people jobless without other alternative means of living..

There is a trend. Perhaps something we dont know. I know majority of okada riders in Ogun are local. The Gov is saying locals are fine for now but if they allow...make I leave am here.

They better cos 100% of the okada, keke riders that have been rendered jobless in Lagos are going straight to Ogun state... First stop... before spreading themselves through out the south west into states that allow them to stay

It should also be the era of demolishing shanties and useless markets

We must move forward!

Nigerians and hypocrisy
In Aba no okada
in onitsha no okada
in kano no okada
in several states no okada
why are we shouting and crying over okada ban in Lagos
Let the IPOBS and AREWAS doing okada in Lagos return to their respective states and do okada
Lagos must develop
Whoever is not happy with our able Lagos governor can jump into lagoon
