The Kano State Government has banned tricycle riders known as “Adaidaita Sahu” from operating on some major roads within the Kano metropolis in the state from Wednesday, November 30, 2022.

The government, through the Kano Road Traffic Agency, said it took the action after providing 100 ultra-modern buses and 50 taxis that would be conveying passengers on the roads that are prohibited for tricycle operators.

This was disclosed in a statement on Tuesday by the Public Relations Officer of KAROTA, Nabilusi Na’isa.

“Adaidaita Sahu drivers (tricycle operators) are prohibited from following Ahmadu Bello Way by Mundubawa road to Gazawa and Tal’udu road to Gwarzo,” the statement partly read.

According to the statement, the government has provided buses in order to enhance transportation in the state as well as to make it easier for people to follow these routes.

The statement added that the government will also announce when tricycle operators will stop using other major roads in the state once it provides more ultra-modern buses and taxis to ease traffic congestion in Kano city.
