Rochas Okorocha Bans Keke Operators In Imo



Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state, Thursday, banned the tricycle operators from the state capital.

The governor disclosed this through a release issued to newsmen in Owerri, by the Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo.

In the release the Okorocha said they would be given taxes to make their lives prosperous.

It stated: “Years ago when the Keke people gave me a very resounding support, I promised you people that I will change you from three legged to four legged and for that reason, today marks the beginning of movement from tricycle to full car.

“Now government has made provision for 2,000 taxis to enable all of you to have one taxi each. This is done to give you comfort and make your life prosperous. I would have not been happy if I finish this government without fulfilling my promise.

“For purpose of clarity this is government empowerment scheme to empower the masses, to reduce pain in your families and to bring comfort. Keke has served us well in Imo State and

“I want to thank you all for serving us well but as Imo State is developing and getting better with good roads and a lot of infrastructural developments, Keke can no longer be the appropriate means of transport within the Owerri City, this is why we are moving from Keke to a full car.”
