The Lagos State Government has promised to provide alternative means of transportation for Lagosians in the wake of its ban on commercial motorcyclists and tricyclists in certain areas of the metropolis.
It also praised ‘keke’ and ‘okada’ riders for complying with their restriction from six LGAs, major highways and bridges.
The enforcement by the State Security Council began on Saturday.
The ban has been widely condemned by residents as the government made no alternative arrangements for commuters, leaving many trekking and struggling to find means of reaching their destinations.
The state said the ban, which is being enforced in 15 local government areas and local council development areas across the state, became necessary due to the casualty figures resulting from their operations.
In a statement released on the official Twitter page of Lagos State Government Sunday evening, the government said the level of compliance was over 90 per cent. “In fact, some of the ride hailing companies directed their riders to obey the directive. This is commendable,” it said.
According to the statement:-
“the high level of compliance has shown that Lagosians agree with the government on the need to stop the danger that commercial motorcycles and tricycles have become a big threat to safety of lives and security of our people.
“The little discomfort experienced by commuters on some routes due to the absence of motorcycles and tricycles is noted. This will not last as alternatives are being rolled out.”
Alternative From The Government:-
It said a fleet of 65 buses will join the others on some major routes as from Monday February 3, 2020. “No less than 550 more buses are being expected. Besides, 14 ferries will be commissioned on Tuesday.”
It also said:-
“this will further open up the waterways, reduce travel time on various routes and provide safe, dependable and comfortable alternatives for commuters.
“The government is not unaware that enforcing this directive may lead to some job losses.
The Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, plans to announce some measures to tackle the likely effects of the order.
“Besides the programmes of various agencies, such as the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF), Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Office of Civic Engagement, Lagos State Parks and Gardens and others.”
Warning From Lagos State Government:-
The government warned those who are planning to unleash violence on the state because of the ongoing enforcement to have a change of heart.
“Lagosians are peace loving and law abiding people, who will not embrace any disruption of their legal activities by failed politicians hiding under the evil of unwholesome activism.
“The law enforcement agents have been directed to ensure that nobody takes the law into his hands. The government places a very high premium on law and order in the interest of all Lagosians.
“It will not fail to act when peace is threatened.” # Lagos State Government Gives Alternative To Ban On Keke & Okada.

Awazi OAP & Ex-Staff Calls Out Soundcity Over Unpaid Salaries And Sexual Harassment
The OAPs, Awazi and Mary have slammed “Soundcity” over unpaid salaries and alleged sexual harassment
The ladies took to Twitter to reveal the dirty doings of the popular media house. According to them, Soundcity has been owing staff for several years and have refused to pay.
They added that any staff that dares query the company over the unpaid salary gets fired.
Mary wrote, So ALL the OAPs that work at CMA (@Soundcity985FM and @Urban96FM ) went on a silent strike due to MNTHS of unpaid salaries but instead of settling things amicably, THREE of them were singled out and fired as a lesson to the others for daring to demand what is due to them.
This is not an issue that started today, It has actually been going on for YEARS and now that they’ve had enough, some of them get fired as a way of silencing the rest. And guess what? It worked!
This has to be the highest form of bullying I have ever seen. You owe your staff for MONTHS without any form of explanation/communication but go on to organize concert(S) and an award show and expect them to fold their arms and do nothing? Come on! These are the issues.
Awazi wrote Lol this is not a joke. Great platform aside Soundcity is easily the worst place I’ve ever worked in my life and this is taking unpaid internships into consideration.
The OAPs here are superheroes yet there constantly treated like shit. Burn the whole system to the fucking ground! In the last 8 months, so many people have asked me why I left soundcity and “threw away such a great opportunity”
LOL y’all don’t know the half of it. At the time I left I knew I was much better unemployed than working under the horrible conditions I was subjected to at soundcity.
Won’t even get deep into the details of things but imagine being for up to 5 months at a time then having to sit through some sort of interrogation with “HR” because you sent an insanely polite email asking for info on why you haven’t been paid.
This happened to @ilowitdfloEven going to pee on this place is a problem! I had to leave the entire building in the middle of my show sometimes to find a decent bathroom to pee in. Then sexual harassment ooo boy the sexual harassment in this place is on steroids! My God
Then there’s the fact that nothing works in this place! I’m talking microphone issues, headphones, air conditioning
Oh don’t get me started on the constant bullying and systemic attempts to intimidate anyone that has any kind of opinion or expectation for things to be done right
