There appears to be no succor in sight for former bike riders in Lagos state. The Ogun State Government opened it’s arms them on Wednesday but rejected them on Friday.
The initial announcement was made by the Ogun state Chairman, Caretaker Committee on Transportation, Mr. Femi Adeniyi, on Monday. He assured the motorcyclists, who were leaving Lagos for Ogun, following the ban slammed on them, of adequate accommodation, provided they would be law- abiding.
In dramatic turn of evens much to the chagrin of the bike riders the Special Adviser on Public Communications to Governor Dapo Abiodun, Remmy Hazzan, said nobody has been authorised to speak on the issue on the government’s behalf.
The Special adviser noted that Okada operation is replete with many challenges, including that of security, which is the reason their activities have either been totally banned or restricted in many parts of the country.
Mr Hazzan added that his state does not have the capacity to cope with the menace and security challenges the influx of the Okada operators from Lagos state will bring.
