2023: I will review Lagos Okada ban if elected, says Jandor

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, Abdulazeez Olajide Adediran (Jandor) has promised to review the ban on operation of commercial motorcycles (Okada) in some parts of the State if elected in 2023. 

The Nation reports Sanwo-Olu few months back banned the operation of commercial motorcycles on highways in 10 Local Government Areas and 14 Local Council Development Areas in total.

The ban, which appears to be gaining more ground, may likely be extended to more areas.

Sanwo-Olu had said the Government took the decision in line with the State’s Transport Sector Reform Law of 2018 to immediately address the chaos and menace created by the operations of Okada in the listed areas.

But faulting the State Government, Jandor who spoke during his campaign train to Eti-Osa Local Government Area in company of popular singer, Bankole Wellington aka Banky W on Saturday, promised to revisit the Okada ban policy.  

He said: "Now they've chased all our people away. We cannot do Okada again. Okay, if we cannot ride Okada again, what are you giving us in return? Nothing. Does that make sense? We will come back as governor of the state in 2023 and revisit all those issues. 

"If we are taking away something from you, we must be able to give you something back. PDP does not discriminate. We all together own this land."
