Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross State has issued an executive order banning the use of motorcycles in Calabar, the state capital and its environs.

In a statement by the state’s Security Adviser, Mr. Rekpene Bassey, the governor said any violation of the order would attract severe penalty.

It read: “Governor Imoke has issued an executive order of total ban on the use of motorcycles in Calabar and its environs. This order comes into full force from October 25.

“Consequently, any violation of this order will attract appropriate and severe penalties, including the impounding of the motorcycles irrespective of whether or not the rider is wearing a crash helmet.

“This action is in the interest of the safety, security and welfare of all persons in the state capital, particularly following the persistent abuse of exemption accorded motorcycle owners and users by the governor.”

The statement, however, said there were arrangements to grant special passes and identification to persons performing special duties requiring the use of motorcycles, including courier services.
