There have been rumours hovering around about Enugu state government set to ban tricycle (keke) from commuting in Enugu after the 2019 general election.

Enugu state government finally addressed the issue. This was made known yesterday by Vitus Okechi, Enugu state Commissioner of Transport, via a statement.

He described the ongoing rumour as false and baseless. He went on to say the state government has intentions of empowering the tricycle operators after the 2019 general election.

The statement reads;

“The attention of the Enugu State Government has been drawn to rumour making the rounds that it plans to ban the operation of tricycles (Keke) in the state after the 2019 general election.

“The state government wishes to state categorically that the allegation is false and baseless as there is no such plan.

“The government has implicit confidence in the leadership and membership of the Association of Tricycle Riders Transport Union in Enugu State, has continued to enjoy a cordial working relationship with them as partners in the development of the state and will empower them more after the 2019 general election in line with the policy thrust of the administration.

“We, therefore, urge the public to discountenance the said rumour as there is no iota of truth in it.”
