Okada Ban: Lagos Deploys 65 Buses To Major Roads




In response to criticisms against the Okada and tricycle ban, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, directed the deployment of a fleet of 65 buses to be made available by the Lagos Bus Services Limited (LBSL), to service major routes in the state, starting from February 3.

The governor stated, in a statement, that the dispatching of buses to major areas in the city was an effort to ease the challenges Lagosians might face because of the ban.

“The little discomfort experienced by commuters on some routes due to the absence of motorcycles and tricycles is noted. This will not last as alternatives are being rolled out, a fleet of 65 buses will join the others on some major routes as from Monday, February 3, 2020: No less than 550 more buses are being expected,” Sanwo-Olu said.
