Insecurity: Group wants FCT ban on street trading, motorcycle/tricycle transportation



The Anti-Corruption and Research-Based Data Initiative, ARDI, has written to the Minister for Federal Capital Territory, FCT Abuja, demanding, for security reasons, to ban street trading in the federal capital territory. The group also said that another potential source of insecurity is the operation of both motorcycle (Okada) and tricycle (Keke) as means of transportation. In a letter on the urgent need to restore security and sanity in the FCT, ARDI Executive Secretary, Chief Dennis Aghanya said that their suggestions deserved urgent attention because of the special status of the FCT and the security challenges currently facing the country at present. ARDI maintained that there is a need to ban the use of motorcycle (Okada) as a means of transportation in the FCT and satellite towns because it has completely defaced the city and also serve as a tool for insecurity. It cited the Kano and a few other states examples where decency has been restored and insecurity checkmated from the ban of the motorcycle as means of transportation, noting that the FCT needs the measure more than any other area.
