LASG Reiterates Commitment to the Ban On Okada

The Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso has reiterated the determination of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration to ensure that the ban on commercial motorcycles, popularly known as ‘Okada’, is fully implemented in the affected Local Government/Local Council Development Areas of the State.

Speaking on a television programme ‘Lagos in Focus’ aired on MITV, Mr. Omotoso said the ban on Okada in nine Local Governments and six Local Council Development Areas has ensured the return of sanity and tranquillity on some roads while the crime and accident rates have also been drastically reduced in many areas.

Imploring Lagosians to always make use of the safe and conducive First and Last Mile (FLM) Buses as alternative means of transportation, Omotoso said the State Government has put in place 19 vocational centres where people can learn different skills at no cost to them, noting that about 6000 people have already graduated from the vocational centres.
