Gov. Ganduje Bans Males & Females From Plying Same Tricycles
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has banned males and females from plying same tricycles across the state with effect from January, 2020.
This was contained in an official announcement by Governor Ganduje on Wednesday at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course (IVC) organised by Zone A of Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSSN) held at Bayero University, Kano.
Present at the Islamic Vacation Course were students of secondary schools and tertiary institutions from the 19 Northern states and Abuja.
Speaking on behalf of Ganduje, the Commander General of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina, said the move is to ensure that the state upholds Islamic values.
Tricycles were introduced in Kano by a former governor of the state, Ibrahim Shekarau, as a means of transportation for women only after he banned commercial motorcyclists from conveying women.
Since Mr Shekarau’s exit as governor, however, tricycles have been allowed to carry people of both sexes.
