Osun state suspends registration of Okada riders

The Osun State Government, yesterday, ordered the Department of Transportation to stop fresh registration of commercial motorcycles popularly known as Okada to curb invasion from neighbouring states.

In a statement by the Special Adviser to Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, Toke Olaniyan stated that the move was to check incursion of commercial motorcyclists from Lagos state as a result of restriction placed on the trade in some local government areas of the state.

Olaniyan said the state government is in talks with ACCOMORAN and other stakeholders involved in intracity transportation to ensure adequate scrutiny of commercial motorcyclists to check insecurity in the state.

The statement reads in part: “We are in constant touch with ACOMORAN and other associations concerned with intra-city transportation in the state to ensure proper scrutiny of all operators to provide adequate measures for security and safety of residents.”
