The Lagos State House of Assembly was rocked with protests as thousands of motorcycle riders working for Gokada and Max, on Friday, came to reject the imminent Motorcycle and Tricycle ban.
The riders, who carried placards with different inscriptions, demanded the suspension of the planned ban on motorcycle and tricycle riders in 15 local council areas of the state.
At a press conference, the management of Max and Gokada had said the state government did not consult them before announcing its decision to ban motorcycle taxis in selected areas across the state.

The riders lamented that the ban would not only take their means of livelihood but also render them jobless.
They submitted a petition to the lawmakers, who came out to address them.
The member representing Alimosho Constituency, Bisi Yusuf, who represented the Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, urged them to obey the law pending when the House would look into their petition.
