He stated,

“This is the phase banning we are going to be embarking on so that others know that in a short while, either they get out or get something else to do.

“From the 1st of June, the LCDAs that are underneath them, we are going to publish them and list all of them, so we are giving the notice now.


“Begin to do your strategy now, from the 1st of June, we want all the Okadas to be completely off these major roads”.

Many has said the good within the fact is that Okada riders have become very unruly.

However,  Okada users are also saying life is going to be difficult for both the riders and average Lagosians.


Do you think the governor has the political will to enforce this new band?
