Am very sure you must have heard or noticed the recent happenings in Lagos State, Nigeria.
Recently the State Governor issued a ban on popular motorcycle and Tricycle (Okada and Keke) riders activities in some parts of the state, this he said was as a result of continued security concerns. Though the ban came with some good reasons but the negative effects on the daily lives of people living in Lagos State has become very worrisome.
Among the side effects of this ban are:
* High unemployment rate due to the fact that many people (male and female inclusive) took the riding of Okada and keke as a way been self employed. This has destroyed their means of livelihood.
* Increased Human traffic. You heard that right! Just imagine the number of people that will be taking the roads on a daily basis now that the ban has been implemented.
* Increase in criminal activities. Just watch it and see, if something is not done quick about this ban you will notice that most of the people whom their means of living has been stopped will eventually go into the streets to start causing havoc. This is the same the government said made them to put the ban.
