A 21-day ultimatum has been given to okada riders to vacate all restricted routes in the Lagos metropolis.
Early today, relevant officials of the state government met with okada unions at the State Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, and stressed the need for okada riders to vacate the roads.
Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Tunji Bello who chaired the meeting told newsmen that government had decided to give the riders 21-day ultimatum for the unions to sensitise their members to vacate the restricted routes before enforcement would begin.
“We just held a meeting with the okada unions on what should be done; we have held meeting with security agencies before now. Recently, we noticed resurgence of okada riders going back to their old ways.
The SSG stated that enforcement was relaxed during the last election so that political parties would not capitalise on the enforcement for cheap political gains.
