The Okada Ban And Public Transportation In Calabar: Ideas, Issues, And Reality.


Transportation simply refers to the movement of people or goods from one point to another.

It comes in different forms. When it is offered for a few, it is referred to as public transportation in Nigeria even though the actual meaning slightly differs.

It is done with the help of motorcycles, cars, trains, ships, and airplanes.

In Calabar, the Cross River State capital, Governor Bassey Otu announced a ban on the use of motorcycles to convey people in the metropolis and city. 

But, that has brought a lot of questions.

Why the ban?

How long will it last?

What happened to the initial ban?

Are there alternatives?

How will this impact the movement of people?

These and more form the basis of this week’s ‘The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo’ with the topic: “The Okada Ban And Public Transportation In Calabar: Ideas, Issues, And Reality.”

The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Bassey Otu, Mr. Emmanuel Ogbeche, and the Chairman of Cross River State Civil Society Network, Leader Ben Usang were guests.
