Ban on Keke: Twitter users groan as FCT begins full implementation

Published

Tricycle Lagos

The recent ban on the operation of tricycle popularly known as Keke within Abuja metropolis has sparked criticisms among residents on Twitter.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the FCT Ministerial Task Team on Traffic on Tuesday announced that it has concluded plans to begin full enforcement of the ban on major Highways and the city centre in the territory.

Chairman of the team, Ikharo Attah, revealed this at a sensitisation campaign held on Tuesday in Abuja.

Attah said that the exercise, in collaboration with the Department of Road Traffic Services, would not only restore sanity to the nation’s capital, but would also help in the fight against traffic gridlock.

He debunked insinuations by some individuals that the order was designed to unleash hardship on both the operators of the Tricycles and residents of the FCT.

He explained that the ban was in line with the transportation master plan of the city, which stipulated that the operations of all means of transportation should be regulated and controlled.

The task team chairman also said that the ban was meant to enhance the safety of the operators, as well as that of the passengers, because they would no longer be allowed to move on Highways.

According to him, the Abuja project will not succeed if laws and regulations that govern operations of businesses are not enforced and obeyed.

“What the Minister is asking the operators of Keke Napep is just to restrict themselves to areas designated for them to operate, as they cannot be everywhere in the city, particularly on major highways and the Central Area.

“The deployment of high capacity buses from the fleets of Abuja Urban Mass Transport, will cushion the effects of the ban,’’ Attah said.

Some residents have, however, taken to Twitter to condemn the move which they claimed would bring hardship upon residents and cause unemployment in the city.
