FG Lacks Jurisdiction to Intervene in Lagos Okada Ban – Amaechi
The Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, says the federal government does not have the jurisdiction to intervene in the recent ban of Okada and tricycles in some parts of Lagos State.
The Lagos state government started to implement a ban on motorcycles, popularly known as Okadas, and tricycles in major parts of the state on Saturday.
However, the Minister, told newsmen that the Federal Government could not intervene in the matter as it was a state affair.
However, Mr. Amaechi, pointed out that the reason for the ban included insecurity and increased Okada accidents in the state.
He added that likely problems to face were unemployment and an increase in crime.
