Motorcycle, Tricycle Operators must register with LGAs – Obaseki


Edo state governor Mr Godwin Obaseki has directed the sole administrators of the Local Government Areas to produce a register of motorcyclist mostly known as Okada and the tricycle also known as Keke operators operating in their locality.

Governor Obaseki gave the marching order during a security meeting held in Auchi, the administrative headquarters of Etsako west local government.

The production of the register according to the governor is part of the Security measures to nip security in the bud.

He said “On the 12th of September, each local government will give us the list of everybody they have registered to operate as motorcycle or tricycle riders.

“Effective the following Monday, we will start to enforce the rules that anybody who has not registered cannot operate as Okada and Keke NAPEP riders. We have agreed that we will provide additional logistics for security operations in Edo North, particularly the provision of more motorcycles for the rural areas.

The security meeting was attended by traditional rulers across the Edo north senatorial district.
