Following the ban on commercial motorcycle operators in Lagos State, the Ondo State government, on Saturday, said it has put in place some measures to prevent the influx of Okada into the state from Lagos State.
The Special Adviser to the State governor, Mr Tobi Ogunleye, who disclosed this to Tribune Online, said the state government has established a Rider Institute in the state to register all commercial riders in the state.
He said rather than proscribe the activities of the riders in the state outrightly, all the commercial riders would be registered to curb the rate of crimes in the state.
He said any unregistered commercial motorcycle with the institute would not be allowed to operate in the state.
He said “apart from this, the state government will soon introduce a tricycle scheme known as Keke Aketi in two of the estate in the capital city to prevent crimes in these estates.
“This scheme will be extended to other places but any unregistered motorcycle will not be allowed to operate in the state.
“This registration will include all their data and their next of kin. This will allow us to monitor the activities of the commercial motorcycle operators.”
He said new commercial motorcycle operators would not be allowed in the state saying all new Okada riders will not be allowed to operate in the state.
