Na’isa said the action was taken after the government had provided 100 buses as well as 50 taxis to ease the conveyance of passengers on the roads.

The government had in July prohibited tricycle riders from operating from after 10pm in the state.

In the latest statement, Na’isa said: “Adaidaita Sahu drivers or tricycle operators are prohibited from following Ahmadu Bello Way by Mundubawa road to Gazawa and Tal’udu road to Gwarzo.”

He added that the government would also ban tricycle operators from using other major roads in the state as soon as it provides more ultra-modern buses and taxis in the state.
