Governor Ganduje bans men and women from boarding same tricycle in Kano



Governor Abdullahi Ganduje placed a ban on men and women boarding the same tricycle in Kano State. The Kano State Governor who was represented by Commander-General of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course organised by Zone A of Muslim Society of Nigeria held at Bayero University, Kano, said the ban will be enforced from January 2020. It was further learnt that former governor of Kano, Ibrahim Shekarau introduced commercial tricycles popularly known as ‘A daidaita Sahu’ as a means of transportation for women only after banning commercial motorcyclists from conveying women. However after Shekerau left government, tricycles have been allowed to carry people of both sexes before the recent ban.
