Lagos Ban Okada and Tricycles in Major Roads

To everyone who lives in Lagos, it’s impossible to restrict motor-cycles popularly known as okada on Lagos major roads. But as far as government is concern to protect and guide the people of Lagos State, the government can go extra miles in doing that. On Thursday the government demonstrates through law that anything is possible though it might take a little while, but it can be done.

Over the past few years, a lot of armed robbery in Lagos is been carried out through motor-cycle known as okada. Recently I almost fall their victim at under bridge Ikeja around 9:30 pm, but God save me from their hands, they quickly jump into their okada and speed up. Many have been robbed through this process once there is dark, but with the help of the government and Lagos State Security Trust Fund this evil act is reduced. 
The government has shown support to the police to protect life and properties from the men of under-world. To reduce this evil act to a minimum barest level, the government has sign the bill banning okada and tricycle on major roads into law. The law is meant to regulate the traffic administration in the state and also make the roads saver for users. By the time this law fully comes to stay, it means over 400 roads in Lagos will be restricted for commercial Okada riders and tricycles across Lagos state.
The government has begun a campaign to enlighten the populace to understand the law. According to Attorney General and commissioner for justice in Lagos Mr. Ade Ipaye “the state government would carry out a comprehensive programme to sensitize the public in order to ensure that people don’t fall victim of the law on the excuse of ignorance. The enforcement of the law will not take effect immediately until it was gazetted and then circulated to all stakeholders concerned to ensure they have access to the gazette.”
The governor said the law will brings decency in the state. He assured that the law will be friendly to law abiding citizens and for those who allays fears who may see the law has been too stringent, he said the law is a dormant piece of paper wish will not just jump on an innocent motorist in his/her vehicles neither will it come to his house looking for him but rather it is the man that always go look for the law.
He also added, we welcome people to our state, those who are ready to live with the reality and complexity that governs modern state that is growing and commercial capital for West Africa are welcome but those who cannot live with our laws should please stay away. This is the way we chose to live in Lagos.
By the time these laws come to the populace it means that 496 roads in Lagos will be restricted for okada and tricycle to ply. 
Some of the roads are:
Lagos-Ikorodu Expressway
Apapa-Oshodi Expressway
