Should "okada" Be Banned?

Hello people,

I have observed now for some time the uncountable number of lives lost through okada accidents attributed to the recklessness of the so called okada rider. To me, the economic disdvantages far outweigh the benefits.

What do you guys think??

NO!

We are too fond of banning things without providing suitable replacements or thinking the consequences through.

How these people go chop? If you ban okada, you might as well give them the keys to your house. There will be a serious upsurge in crime.

Until you find them an alternative source of employment leave them be.

No,it will make alot of people to be jobless,all they need is training and if possible the government should start doing riding training 4 them,like driving test.

Okada should be banned in all major cities

Nigerians make an habit of legalizing an illegality instead of solving the original problem.

No.

At the current time there is simply no replacement for the masses.

I believe we could strengthen safety regulation and toughen up the licenses required for Okada, and persecute those who hand out licenses to those who should clearly not operate them.

The problem in Nigeria is not lack of framework, but simple re-inforcement. If Nigeria had traffic officers in numbers comparable to western nations, and who actually went about doing their work properly, the Okada safety issue would be no more of an issue than motorbikes in Florida or California.
