RE: Imo Sacks Okada
Imo Acquires 1,500 Cabs, Bans Okada

Imo State Government is to ban commercial motorcyclists, popularly known as "okada" from plying the streets of Owerri, the state capital, in the next few days.

The government has acquired over 1,500 state-of-the-art vehicles to operate as taxicabs in the state capital.

State Liason Officer in Abuja, Elvis Agukwe, disclosed this at the weekend.

He said that Governor Ikedi Ohakim would soon launch the cabs in the state.

Agukwe also disclosed that work on the state’s N5 billion China Town project would soon take off.

According to Agukwe, the vehicles would be leased out to the unemployed in the state on an interest free basis, pointing out that the cabs are already in the state.

"Okada would be banned in the state; they would no longer operate in the Owerri capital territory.

"Most of the okada riders who are graduates would be retained and absorbed in the taxi initiative. Others will now have to operate in the outskirts of the city", he added.

Sacking Okada is not a problem, the real problem is what will be put in place to reabsorb the okada men because they feed their family from that trade.

What they should have done is put that money into fixing the roads and then ban the okadas ……. right now taxis will not transport people efficiently.

The roads are not in any condition for that (Taxi) form of transportation to be the only source of transportation.

Honestly sometimes I wonder what these Governors are smoking! Expressionless

acquire 1500 taxis implies having an avenue to embezzle money since EFCC is on their neck.

RE: Imo Sacks Okada
ban okada equates to increase in crime......displaced okada drivers with no means of income, state not proving them jobs etc, how will those with family feed, how are they suppose to live... so they join gangs, armed robbers and God help the useless police force......

overall position is curfew, state of emergency in every state... look at port harcourt...

God, Military rule is now looking so good beacuse "democratically elected a$ holes" no sabi chit

RE: Imo Sacks Okada
for the record, am not complaining, i am merely stating my opinion/views for what it is worth.

Furthermore, if you can search through some topics here since i logged in, i have always held the opinion, that nigeria was far better off under military rule than the so called demo crazy.....

those are my views, opinions not complaint
