Kano state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje is considering the possibility of banning the operations of ‘A Daidaita Sahu’ tricycles in the state, according to the Managing Director Kano Road Transport Agency (KAROTA), Bappa Babba Dan Agundi.
Mr. Dan Agundi told reporters in Kano that the governor is awaiting a security report about whether to ban or to reorganize the operations of the commercial tricycles.
“I don’t want to preempt the security forces. I cannot say whether A Daidaita Sahu will continue or be banned. But I am advising them to improve their practices”, he said.
“If you told people in the past that commercial motorcyclists would be banned in Kano the response would have been ‘it is impossible’”, he added.
KANO TODAY recalls that Kano state government is planning to introduce exclusive bus routes and train services in Kano metropolis.
The KAROTA Managing Director added that his agency will focus more on ensuring compliance with traffic regulations rather than punishing offenders.
“Unlike before when agents will allow you to commit the offense before arresting and punishing you,” he said.
