Although the mobility sector is in its early stages, the ban could mean the end for major players like MAX.ng, Gokada as well as ORide.
Yet, the people who will be most afected by the ban are the bike riders in the sector.
Today, January 31, 2020, bike riders held a rally in Ikeja; headed to the Lagos State Secretariat, to protest the ban, urging government to regulate the sector instead.
While MAX.ng and Gokada riders were at the rally, ORide says they will release a statement before February 1.
The stakes are high: the ban, if it goes in place on February 1, will shut down the mobility sector. While there are legal questions on the ban, the government refuses to back down.
In an official communication from the government’s Twitter page, they provide some reasons for the ban. High incidents of road accidents, security and safety are some of the reasons given.
