Nigerians on social media have reacted to the news that from January 2020, males and females will not be allowed to take the same commercial tricycles across Kano state.
According to them, the directive which came from the state governor, Umar Ganduje, is wrong and hypocritical.
Some also described it as oppressive, discriminatory, illegal and unconstitutional.
Here are other reactions to the news by some Nigerians on Facebook.
I hope the Kanawas clapping for Sheikh Umar Ganduje and thumping their chest for the new gender apartheid policy of his administration will have the courage to demand they be put in different commercial vehicles and tricycles separate from women when they travel out of the state. Say like in Lagos State..
I hope they will tell the governor to also make a law that will create separate markets for women and men differently. That will be nice to see.
I hope they will tell him to build different hospitals meant for women and men differently and that the medical personnel in such facilities should also be of exclusive sex peculiar to the gender of the hospital.
I hope they will tell him to ensure that only female commercial drivers drive female passengers in the new state policy banning tricycles from carrying both sexes at the same time.
I hope the shopping malls in the state will be separated exclusively for men and women. For example: Shoprite for men, Shoprite for women
And so on and so on.....
By the time Ganduje has succeeded in reducing all of you to prehistoric men and women living in cave distant from any ray of civilization while he is busy cornering the resources of the state for the advancement of his own good and that of his family, you'd realize that government has no business legislating for the people how they conduct their religious affairs...
Religious hypocrisy in Kano is as yellowy as the MTN logo... Everywhere you go
Gov. Ganduje's policies on people of opposite sexes not boarding same tricycle is at best hypocritical, oppressive, discriminatory, illegal and unconstitutional.
It can never stand the test of legality.
He should also create separate markets for men and women or in the alternative, differentiate outing time between men and women. By extension, men should not drive the tricycle otherwise, it's a mockery policy. What a set of blind leaders!
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that persons of the opposite genders can no longer ply the same commercial tricycles popularly known as ‘A daidaita sahu’ in Kano state.
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.
