“Obey Traffic Laws or Turn to Farming”
Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos created quite a buzz this week when he told commercial motorcyclists in the state to turn to farming if the new Traffic Laws prove too stiff for them.
At a meeting with the state leadership of commercial motorcycle operators, popularly called okada riders, on Tuesday, the governor said their members were free to leave the job. Assuring okada riders of government support, Fashola advised that their members who could not cope with the law could “register with the Skill Acquisition Centres across the State or take to farming as a profession.”
