UGHELLI—COORDINATOR of Civil Liberty Rehabilitation Initiative, Mr. Cyril Ojiemen, has faulted he proposed ban on commercial motorcycles, commonly called Okada in Delta State, describing it as mischievous and against the economic interest of the people.
Ojiemen, in a statement, yesterday, said: “Delta State Government’s proposed ban on Okada in major cities of the state is against the economic rights of the riders, and a deprivation of their means of livelihood and against the interest of the masses, who patronise Okada as a means of transportation.
“One of the primary responsibilities of any government is the welfare of the people. This is a government that had failed in its more than five years of existence, to provide basic infrastructure for the ordinary people.”
