The Lagos State Government wants to ban okada and keke. This is because a lot of them drive carelessly, causing accidents.
Attempts to get them to drive more carefully has been largely ignored by many okada and keke drivers.
But banning okada and keke without providing alternative means of livelihood is not advisable.
An okada man speaking to BBC on the issue asked, and I paraphrase: if the thousands of okada and keke drivers [who have thousands of mouths to feed] are banned, how will it be?
That question to me, is food for thought.
