- From January 2020, males and females will not be allowed to take the same commercial tricycles across Kano state
- The ban is from the Kano state government
- The commercial tricycles were introduced by former governor Ibrahim Shekarau as a means of transportation for women only
Persons of the opposite genders can no longer ply the same commercial tricycles popularly known as ‘A daidaita sahu’ in Kano state.
Premium Times reports that an official announced that the ban from the Kano state government takes effect from January 2020.
This was disclosed by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on Wednesday, December 25, at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course (IVC). The event was organised by Zone A of Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSSN) held at Bayero University, Kano.
The Kano governor, who was represented by commander general of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina, said the state government is committed to upholding Islamic values.
Former Kano governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, had introduced the commercial tricycles as a means of transportation for women only.
However, since Shekarau's government left power, tricycles have been allowed to carry people of both sexes, a move which the Ganduje-led government has now said will be changed.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari felicitated with Governor Ganduje on the occasion of his 70th birthday.
Buhari in a message to the Kano state governor described him as a skilled politician, a party builder and a man who works for the success of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to him, the governor is one of the most patient and calculable politicians he has ever met in his life.
