Kano State Government has placed a ban which will now restrict men and women sitting together in tricycle across the state.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje today made this known at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course organised by Muslim Students Society of Nigeria held at Bayero University, Kano.
Ganduje represented by the Commander-General of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina, announced that enforcement of the ban will start by January 2020.
It was further learnt that former governor of Kano, Ibrahim Shekarau introduced commercial tricycles popularly known as ‘A daidaita sahu’ as a means of transportation for women only after banning commercial motorcyclists from conveying women.
However after Shekerau left government, tricycles have been allowed to carry passengers of of both sexes before the recent ban.
