Residents of Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital, have been left lamenting and raining insults on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his administration, since a ban on commercial motorcycles (Okada) and tricycles (Keke) came into force on Saturday, February 1, 2020.
The ban, which affects six local governments spanning the heart of the city, has left many residents walking long distances where commercial buses cannot reach.
Lagosians say the ban is a myopic one, enforced without alternatives.

This is common in Nigeria. Every politician will sweettalk us because they want our vote, but once they get the power, the opposite is the case.
