Lagos State Unveils Transportation System That Will Replace Okada, Keke Marwa
From the month of July, Lagos State Government will introduce what it describes as First Mile and Last Mile (FMLM) mobility solution to replace banned Okada and tricycle.
This was made known by the Commissioner for Transportation, Frederick Oladeinde on Wednesday at the 2020 ministerial press briefing at the JJT Park, Alausa, Ikeja.
The commissioner said: “Following the restriction of motorcycles and tricycles for commuter operations in some areas in the metropolis, the government is working on implementing a First Mile and Last Mile (FMLM) mobility solution.”
He explained that Okada and tricycle are not part of the state’s transport architecture, adding that they are constituting nuisance on the roads and responsible for the high rate of accidents and crimes.
“We have identified 285 last mile routes within the seven bus reform initiative zones across Lagos. We have developed bus specifications and shared same with potential bus manufacturers. We expect these to be rolled out in the next two months,” Oladeinde said.’

Instead of eradicating these kekes & OK okadas, the government can restrict them to localities in the state and have them registered under the authorities of those localities with labels of identity on them and specific routes in the localities. Please consider this.

Aside from the show of shame called road re-surfacing that is periodically done alone the mile 12 under-bridge to Ketu corridor needless to say the amount of abandonment we suffer in Fagbile phase 3 estate, Ijegun.
We are only remembered when its time for election to come out and vote enmass because of the high population.
After the election no politician ever remembers us.
Do you want to ask if we counsellors, chairman, represntative, senator or all those other brigandes?
Of course they only exist in Abuja.
FMLM or whatsoever you call it would for sure not happen here. Lolzz! We don’t have the roads through which it would ply because we are definitely not part of Lagos.
