PSHA Demands Full Enforcement of Law Against Okada, Keke Operators
The Plateau House of Assembly has called for the full enforcement of the law banning the operations of commercial motorcycles and tricycles in Jos, the Plateau state capital.
The House in a motion of concern raised by member representing Lantang North Central, Daniel Nanbol, expressed concerns over the non-compliance of the law by motorcyclists.
Hon. Nanbol reminded the House that there was a law banning the operations of motorcycles in Jos and that even the tricycles have designated areas within which to operate, noting that the unimpeded operations of Okada and Keke riders in the state were constituting a security threat to the citizens.
“It is not safe to board even tricycles in some areas, it will be good for the law enforcement agents do their job,” he said.
The member representing Jos North-North Constituency, Hon. Baba Hassan also expressed worry over the increasing rate of insecurity posed by the unrestrained operations of Okada and Keke riders in the state.
Also contributing, the House Majority Leader, Daniel Naanlong said that it was imperative for the people to adhere to the laws.
“We must ensure that the laws we enact are fully implemented,” he said.
The Speaker of the House, Abok Ayuba, agreed with his colleagues saying that it was sacrosanct for the laws and motions passed by the house to be implemented.
“The implementation of the laws we make must be enforced and we must call on those who fail to implement it to come before us and explain the reason for the failure,” he said.
