Bolanle Olukanni, Ifuennada, Leo Dasilva and others react to okada, Opay and keke ban



A few days ago the Lagos state government announced that okada riders and keke napep riders are going to be banned in some major places in the state.

Nigerians have taken to social media to share their opinion on the ban. Nigerian celebrities like Bolanle Olukanni and Big Brother Naija stars, Ifu Ennada and Leo Dasilva, also added their views on different social media platforms.

According to Olukanni, the Nigerian government hates the people. She stated that the ban would end up living so many people unemployed, adding that it is irresponsible for a government to take away the livelihood of so many.

Ifu Ennada took to Instagram to note that the ban makes no sense at all. She asked the government officials what they plan to do for people who would lose their jobs due to the ban.

Leo explained that commercial buses should be banned instead of the okada and keke napep. He added that they are the ones that actually cause a nuisance on the roads.

Other Nigerians reacted to the ban with their thoughts on Twitter. Some supported the government’s decision while the majority opposed it.

Heavy traffic is something that Nigerians complain of constantly in Lagos state and most times okada and keke napep riders save commuters a lot of stress because of their ability to drive through routes that cars cannot pass.

    The KEKE BAN in Lagos State has positive and negative effects on Lagos State residents. Yes, it’s no doubt it will lessen the risk of encountering accidents, but with the amount of traffic jam that occurs in Lagos, motorbikes have helped people a lot in reaching their destinations on time. So I hope the Lagos State Government removes the ban and find a way to improve their Traffic regulation system in other to reduce accident occurrence. I blog often and truly appreciate your content.
