Enforcement of ban on Keke Napep has started in Imo state
Rochas Okorocha, the governor had said months ago that Imo no longer needs Keke Napep as a result of the rapid development in the state
The state had banned the use of Keke Napep some months ago Imo state government has started enforcing the ban on tricycle riders, popularly known as Keke Napep in some designated areas in Owerri, the state capital. The state government had on August announced the ban on Keke Napep from operating in the state capital. Sam Onwuemeodo, the chief press secretary to the governor while disclosing this had said:
“Years ago when the Keke people gave me a very resounding support, I promised you people that I will change you from three legged to four legged and for that reason, today marks the beginning of movement from tricycle to full car.
“Now government has made provision for 2,000 taxis to enable all of you to have one taxi each. This is done to give you comfort and make your life prosperous. I would have not been happy if I finish this government without fulfilling my promise. “For purpose of clarity this is government empowerment scheme to empower the masses, to reduce pain in your families and to bring comfort.
Keke has served us well in Imo state and I want to thank you all for serving us well but as Imo state is developing and getting better with good roads and a lot of infrastructural developments, Keke can no longer be the appropriate means of transport within the Owerri City, this is why we are moving from Keke to a full car.”
In a post, Okechukwu Bernad Franklin, a Facebook user posted some pictures of Keke Napep being confiscated. This comes barely 24 hours after Governor Rochas Okorocha appointed his younger sister, Ogechi Ololo, as the commissioner for happiness and couples fulfillment. Ololo was among 27 new commissioners and 27 transition committee chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state sworn in by the governor on Monday, December 4.
Before her new appointment, she served as the governor’s deputy chief of staff and special adviser on domestic matters.
