Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun‘s Special Adviser on Media, Hon. Remmy Hazzan, has said that okada riders who were banned from Lagos have no place in Ogun. He disclosed this on Thursday while addressing newsmen after the launch of his book, ‘Wisdom Nugget for Daily Living’ in Abeokuta.
According to him, okada riders would be phased out from Ogun State gradually. He said transportation by Okada has no place in the national policy, describing it as a menace. He emphasized that the riders would be taken off the streets of Ogun, saying, however, that it will be a gradual process.
Read Remmy Hazzan’s statement below:
“Ogun State is open, but if it is about Okada, maybe you need to look somewhere else. It then doesn’t mean those who are already in the business in Ogun are cast away yet.
“We have a broad national policy that does not support that (Okada riding), which means we will do something that is a phased gradual removal of this menace from our streets. But it will be gradual, it won’t be radical.”
