Afolabi Oluwatobi said: “That is why Okada shouldn’t be totally banned in Lagos. It has saved many people their jobs, interview appointments and all. They should be regulated instead.
“To me, there is really no reasonable explanation to justify the ban of smart ride like Opay rides. Through apps, you can book a ride and no matter how remote your location, the bike will come and pick you up to your destination with full kit and head protector. There’s no smarter way to move around in Lagos than this and the government should look into it.”

Yusuf Adebanjo in his own comment said: “Correct man, pragmatism at its best. The Lagos traffic no send anybody ooo. I was once a victim myself, with all my official corporate wear and expensive perfume I had to humble myself, bury my pride and hop on a bike to the airport when it became evident I was going to miss my flight with the vehicle remaining stuck in traffic. For Lagos, you need to borrow yourself sense whenever you stuck in traffic.”
