Following the spate of insecurity in Oyo State, Governor  Seyi Makinde has said that okada riders may have to be registered.

Makinde, who was quoted to have spoken while briefing newsmen at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, on Wednesday, explained that “We will also be meeting with the heads of the association of Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle and Tricycle Owners, Repairers and Riders Association of Nigeria (ACOMORAN).

“The option is very simple for us. It is either you get registered and we know who are the operators or we regulate your operation. We can say that after 6 p.m., we don’t want to see okadas and tricycles on our streets. We have the power to do that but how does that affect our economy? I personally believe that they are filling a gap. If demands exist, we want them to maximise the gains coming from their operation. 

“But if they would not register their people, we will be left with no choice than to just regulate the hours in which they operate. So, I am hopeful that they will cooperate with us by getting their people registered.”
