“Go to emergency wards and see what they caused” – Governor Fashola adamant on okada ban - Nawa if cars don't have accidents...all the trailers that fall daily at mile 2 and Apapa nko...there are no provisions for alternative means of transportation in Ikeja, keke napep ain't much,people are trekking seriously, what job do they expect the okada ridders to do sure is robbery because even graduates are jobless...honestly for the first time i disagree with these Fashola's law **not interested**

Lagos State Governor, Mr Babatunde Fashola (SAN) was on Tuesday challenged those supporting the unregulated operation of commercial motorcyclist to take a trip to the various hospitals and medical emergency centres to see the havoc wreaked by their activities.
Governor Fashola who spoke on the topic “Freedom from Fear” in relation to Law and Order in Lagos State said they should visit the hospitals and emergency wards and see those who have lost limbs, arms, those who have lost children or those who have become orphans by the recklessness of the okada riders.
Noting that a lot depended on the citizenry in ensuring an orderly society, the Governor said everyone must build a consensus that the idea behind the new traffic law was to ensure the protection of life and assets of every resident of Lagos and their businesses.

Tracing the various well organized public transport systems that had existed in the past like the L.M.T.S and L.S.T.C, he said it should agitate the minds of citizens and members of the Club how the State arrived at its present state in terms of the unbridled operation of commercial motorcyclists.
