FCT Minister Gives Reason Tricycle Was Banned In The State

The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, has said that the restriction placed on commercial tricycle operators to certain parts of the city was one of the most difficult decisions that the FCT administration had to make.






The minister who was represented by his Chief press Sec Mr Anthony Ogunleye said that the decision was imperative because commercial tricycles by law should not operate on the express and highways along with vehicles as they pose dangers to both passengers and riders.

According to Bello, most roads within the Federal Capital City, were expressways and thus could not accommodate the presence of the commercial tricycles and motorcycles.

He, however, said that the FCTA was not unmindful of the challenges commuters were facing as a result of the policy, adding that strategies were being put in place to improve on the public transportation situation in the FCT.


Bello said that the FCTA was working closely with the commercial tricycle association to explore the possibility of upgrading their operations to taxi cabs, NAN via dailypost.

  4. Yes the decision is good but without providing the means of livelihood to the riders immediately doesn't make sense. If they want to implement a law there should be provision of livelihood for the people affected.

  10. We so good at putting the cart before the horse in Nigeria. This shouldn't be just mere talk of providing an alternative to alleviate the stress this could bring to Abuja residents. They should do something about it expediently.

  11. Very Good.. the rate of accidents was alarming I witnessed one and I shed tears though I don't know any one of the victims, I parked off the road and came down from my car to assist the victims with other passersby.. most of the riders are racing stark drug induced illetrates who just take up keys and ride the keke.. it should be banned all over

  12. Oga pls just stop this nonesense you are saying, what other means of transportation did you provided before placing ban on trycycle? I could remember vividly when Kano State Government wanted to place ban on bike, Kwankwaso make sure there was enough keke on ground before placing ban on bike. Kwankwaso even got money frm Government coffer to purchase thousands of keke and put it on rent for the bike men and other jobless men that were relieved of their jobs in other to strike balance between the commuters and the bike men. Despite the fact that there was provision of keke, Kwankwaso still issued like 6 or 3 months to the public before he placed the ban.
    In your own case what have you put on ground for the poor masses and the keke riders? You people always like to bring untold hardship for the poor masses. May God deal with you all. If only you the way we suffer when we want to move arround within the town now, you won't be saying this trash. Mtcheeeew....
