The Abia State Government has suspended the restriction on tricycle and motorcycle operations within the state.

The announcement was made on Monday, July 1, in a statement released by the Commissioner for Information, Prince Okey Kanu. Previously, the government had set July 1st as the start date for restricting tricycle and motorcycle operations between 7 PM and 6 AM.

The suspension follows public appeals and concerns raised by residents, prompting the government to reconsider and temporarily halt the enforcement of the restriction.

The statement read: ”This is to inform the general public that the planned   restriction of the operations of Tricycles [keke] and Motorcycles [Okada]  introduced  by Abia State Government    between the hours of 7:00pm and  6:00am billed to start today, Monday, July 1st, 2024 has been shifted to commence on the 1st of August , 2024.

”However, the enumeration and registration of all commercial vehicles, tricycles and motorcycles in the transport sector in Abia state will commence today as scheduled.

“This adjustment is to accommodate the numerous pleas by Abians to be given more time to prepare for the effective implementation and enforcement of the policy.”
