Motorcyclists on Saturday lamented as Lagos State government commences ban on its operation in the state.

Reports revealed the aftermath of this law will affect more of the bike men from the northern part of the country, as they form larger percentage of the bike men in the state.


In a cross sectional interview with bike men around Apapa area of the state, many of the motorcyclists have poured out their feelings in respect to the okada ban law.

The predominant feeling among them is that of disapproval.


According to opinions gathered from few of them, they assert that, it's a disheartening move by the state government, and this is done in other to chase them into a rat h***.


Salisu Mohammed, one of the okada men who spoke to our correspondence said the okada business is the only way he eats and feeds his immediate and extended family.

What then would become of him, if he no longer plough those route where I make bulk of my income.


Also, another bike man, Abdullahi shettima asserts that, "this law no go work". When asked why he said so, he posit that, if government wants this law to work, they should at least give us a job to do.

"Then no fit tell me say make I no ride okada when they no give me work wey I go do and I no fit go thief, so this law na for government pocket."


Furthermore, Umar Tijani who also is a bike man in this area, lend his voice by saying, he's from Kano state and he has been in Lagos for the past three good years, and the only reason he's still in Lagos is because of the okada job he's doing.

"When I come from Kano, then say make i con do security, I do am for four months I con stop because I no like am, I con start okada work".

He further said that, since the government has resolved into banning okada people and Marua from working, he may consider going back to Kano as the only workable solution for him.


However, many of them took a stand that if the government wants to make an effective law on okada and tricycle, they should try as much as providing a tenable means of survival for them.

When asked on the kind of job they will like the government to provide for them, many of them kept mum while some suggests trades such as "meshai" or "fashion designing".

Some of them however alleged the government of using this gimmick to enrich the NURTW pulse.


The generality of the people spoken to, however, pleaded to the state government to look inward and readjust the law, because those major roads and bridges contribute enormously to their income.
