Okada Ban: Insecurity and road accident deaths has reduced – Sanwo Olu



Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu claims the Okada road ban in Lagos has reduced road accident deaths and insecurity in the State.

Speaking on a Television program on Sunday, August, 7, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu stated that the imposition of ban on motorcycles in the state has helped in addressing the issue of insecurity and road accident-related deaths.

He noted that since the ban, the number of accidents and security issues has dropped in the state.

He said: “Speaking on the ban on Okada, we have seen tremendous improvement in the areas that okada have been banned. Not only have we seen a drop on issue around security like traffic robberies, we have also seen a significant drop in okada accidents. We don’t see limbs been cut in our hospitals again.

In terms of death alone, at the peak of the ban, we had 5k50 okada related accidents on a monthly basis but now, okada related accidents have come down to less than 100.

I also told the RRS that we need to do a lot of pin downs and do pedestrian monitoring, so that people can see them. These are some of the things that we have been doing.”
