FIWON Condemns Ban Of Okada, Keke In Lagos

Published

The Federation of Informal Workers’ Organizations of Nigeria (FIWON) has condemned the ban of motorcycles (okada) and tricycles in some parts of Lagos state.

General Secretary of FIWON, Mr. Gbenga Komolafe while addressing a press conference in Lagos said that the ban is a direct slap on the working people of the state.

He stated that apart from the fact that the Keke Marwa has not been known to ply highways, extending the ban to inner roads and neighbourhood transport routes is ill thought out.

He said, “Even in highbrow gated communities such as Omole Estate and Ikeja GRA, residents, who have all the leverage to restrict Keke Marwa from entering their gates into the communities, allow them because they are aware that not all the residents are car owners.

Komolafe noted that while the argument that Okada and Keke are prone to fatal accidents, allowing them on major highways “is a failure of regulation on the part of law enforcement agencies saddled with the responsibility of road traffic management in Lagos.”
