Abia State Government Set to Ban Commercial Tricycles in Aba and Umuahia Metropolis, Amid Economic Crisis | #NwokeukwuMascot


 Dr Alex Chioma Otti 

According to a public service announcement published by the media adviser to the Abia state Governor, Mr Ferdinand Ekeoma.

Mr Ekeoma in the statement captioned, “UPDATE ON THE BAN ON COMMERCIAL MOTORCYCLES (OKADA ) WITHIN THE ABA AND UMUAHIA METROPOLIS” hinted that the Dr Alex Otti led Abia state government plans that areas affected by the earlier reported Commercial motorcyclist(Okada) Ban will be marked as Tricycle Restricted Areas.

The public announcement reads in full: “For purpose of clarity, the ban on the Operations of Commercial Motorcyclists takes effect only at the City centres of Aba and Umuahia, hence the word "Metropolis" was used. Those plying the routes outside the City Centres are not affected by this directive.

“Again, as mentioned in the previous release; the ban is only on Commercial Motorcyclists, not on private operators.

“Sanity, safety and security concerns formerd the basis for this decision as it was discovered that some Commercial Operators stray into the city centres to operate freely, a development that's not in the best interest of the state.

“Government shall take further action on this directive by ensuring that major parts of the city centres affected by the ban are properly marked as Tricycle Restricted Areas.

“To ensure that some security agents do not take advantage of this directive to resort to extortion and intimidation of Motorcyclists outside the affected areas, Governor Otti has directed that measures be put in place immediately to ensure that any security agent caught molesting any innocent motorcycle operator will be punished.” Mr Ferdinand Ekeoma stated.
