Governor’s Bold Move: Calabar Cracks Down on Commercial Motorcycles!

The Cross River State Governor, Senator Bassey Otu has ordered the immediate ban of all commercial motorcycles within the Calabar Metropolis.

In an effort to bolster security, Governor Bassey Otu has ordered a ban on all commercial motorcycles within the Calabar Metropolis. This move was made following “due consultation” with state security chiefs and is aimed at mitigating the use of motorcycles in criminal activities.

According to the statement, those willing to use their cycles to earn a decent living are restricted only to remote areas away from the city centre.

The ban isn’t all-encompassing, however, as those who depend on motorcycles for their livelihoods are allowed to operate in remote areas far from the city center. That is, assuming they meet the proper regulatory requirements.

The state government warned that anyone caught violating the directive will have the motorcycle impounded and the offender prosecuted.

Violators of this directive will be dealt with swiftly, warns the state government. Motorcycle operators who violate the ban will have their motorcycles impounded, and they will be prosecuted in accordance with the law.

“The Governor, Senator Bassey Out, after due consultation with key security chiefs in the state has directed a total ban on the activities of all commercial motorcycles within the Calabar Metropolis,” the statement read.

The directive comes “after due consultation” with key security chiefs in the state. This ensures that the decision is well-informed and strategically sound.

The state government also warned against the vandalization of public assets like streetlights, lamp post, traffic lights, advising criminals to desist forthwith as culprits will be made to face full wrath of the law.

In addition to the motorcycle ban, the state government also condemned the vandalism of public assets such as streetlights, lamp posts, and traffic lights. Criminals who engage in this activity are warned to cease immediately or face the wrath of the law.
