Good. Those terrorists masquerading as Okada riders from the North can now take their Okadas back to where they came from. You can not destroy your region with terrorism and banditry,and think you can do same in the Southwest. Infact, the southwest govt should place a complete ban on it.

Anytime Lagos is discussed you see them having opinions and suggestions, very irritating

How will people going to ikotun from cele express get Home. I pray they don't lynch enforcement officers because with Bike, Hundreds of people still Jostle for Few bikes. Alaba int. Road is under construction,
Apapa tincan Road, how will they cope. I know this enforcement might not work in ajegunle because they have a lot of Okada Riders and you don't want to joke with them in their zone.
Please Let the Ban be off Major Roads and allow them run within streets and places under construction.
Register them or bring opay back . Till our Roads are motorable enough.
Nice input, they either bring back the likes of Opay, Gokada, e.t.c.
This ban without resolution will cause more harm than good, most especially for a highly populated city like Lagos, it's wrong without absolute and timely resolution...

Necessity is said to be the mother of invention

About time, we need to be proactive and security conscious

We must not allow what is happening in the North East to get to Lagos

Neighbouring states should also take proactive measures especially Ogun State where incidence of kidnapping has been on the increase.

Lagos no be Katsina or Maiduguri




You are spot on. I wonder what Ogun state governor is doing concerning the issue of kidnapping. He should as a matter of urgency place a ban on it.

That's good. If they can't find something else to do. They should relocate to other states or their state.

Okada has been banned in Lagos as far back as 3 years ago. No be Lagos buy okada for them.
You mean banned in some lga’s not general Lagos?? Cos okada riders still operate in certain places.

Let’s get our facts right biko.

Na so we think it won't work at the Six LGA where there is total ban currently...

Have you asked yourself where all the bikes at those LGA have disappeared to

That's the way they will disappear if the ban is extended to other LGA... Government is powerful.

The places that are not motorable. How do they expect people to commute in those areas?
They can ban on major highways but not within streets. It's not sustainable

Bringing up proper solution that will taker over the ban is needed. This ban will cause lateness to work/appointments for the lower class who don't have personal vehicle, crime(many of the bike riders have no backup, many graduates/artisans with no forthcoming contracts/low patronages among them. You can't imagine the population of lagosians these riders feed on a daily basis, many are breadwinners of their family).
They should try to bring back the likes of Opay, Gokada. E.t.c.

They can't ban Okada everywhere in Lagos. It won't simply work

By the time, the government start going around all the local governments, with tax force every day arresting and crushing their bikes . nobody go tell dem before dem relocate or find something else to do.

Total okada ban is very harsh.
I think LASG should form a partnership with corporate organisation where they employ buy okada and employ riders with the assurance they will behave well like gokada and opay

Are you from Lagos State? Do you know what year okada started in Lagos?

When Babangida was there there was nothing like okada

So do not make it sound like there has always been okada in Lagos. People survived without okada and they will again

In making social policy government has to balance the benefits against the risks and the rational conclusion is that the risks outweigh the benefits.
The job of government is to take difficult decisions without sentiments.

Many of them are not from Lagos state and the message is that they should leave if they cannot find something else . Lagos is not for poor people feeding on okada earnings . Bitter truth

Lagos state cannot employ the whole country

Very good, mega city does not use okada. We can not allow the urchins and minority decide for us.
Re: Okada Ban: Lagos Stakeholders Settle For Overall Enforcement In All LGAs by aribisala0(m): 7:55pm On Aug 16
They can go to Abuja .Lagos has not hosted FCT since 1991 and when FCT was in Lagos State there was no okada so stop blackmailing us.
Re: Okada Ban: Lagos Stakeholders Settle For Overall Enforcement In All LGAs by azikiweironsi(m): 7:57pm On Aug 16
Nice move. The Lagosians have spoken.
At least it reduces the menace of criminals rushing to Lagos in the guise of insecurity and unemployment in their region. No more artisans, the positions has been taken over by foreigners. No one dear argue with an Okada rider others will swamp on you like angry bees. If you are lucky not to be lynched or stabbed with their dangerous weapons. Pretending to be working during the day but extremely dangerous at night serving as informant to their commanders or involved in kidnapping, robbery etc....
It is high time for an outright ban.

In fact Ogun State supposed to have taken the measure immediately after Lagos pronounced the ban, but Alas, there is no visible present of
State government in Ogun State, more or less like Ogun State have ghost Governor.

Those people are moving in masses to Ogun State since they are not finding it easy in Lagos State.
