Kano bans tricycle operations on major roads


The Kano Road Traffic Agency has banned tricycle riders known as “Adaidaita Sahu” from operating on some major roads in Kano.

The ban will come into effect from Wednesday, November 30, 2022.

The order was contained in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of KAROTA, Nabilusi Na’isa, and issued to newsmen in Kano on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

The statement partly reads: “Adaidaita Sahu drivers (tricycle operators) are prohibited from following Ahmadu Bello Way by Mundubawa road to Gazawa and Tal’udu road to Gwarzo.”

As an alternative, the government has provided 100 ultra-modern buses and 50 taxis that would be conveying passengers on the prohibited roads.

The statement adds that the government will also announce when tricycle operators will stop using other major roads in the state once it provides more ultra-modern buses and taxis to serve as alternatives.
