The Bayelsa State government has announced its decision to phase out the use of commercial motorcycles otherwise known as Okada in the state with effect from the end of this month. Governor Henry Dickson said the ban has become imperative following incessant cases of motorcycle accidents which has resulted in the maiming and death of commuters.

He told the bayelsa new media team that alternative measures will be put in place through the provision of a revolving loan for taxi cabs, buses and tricycles for genuine drivers in the state to boost their businesses as well as close any perceived gap that would be created by the ban.

The governor also pointed out that his administration was working hard to establish a driving school in the state to train drivers free of charge just as he urged those interested in commercial driving to get themselves registered with the state’s Ministry of Transport.

In addition, his government, he said will provide bus stops and walkways for pedestrians to curb indiscriminate parking of commercial vehicles while the roads in the state capital would be expanded to add to the aesthetic beauty of Yenagoa.
