The Kano State Government has banned persons of opposite genders from plying same commercial tricycles across the state from Jan, 2020.
Governor Ganduje revealed this yesterday, at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course organised by Zone A of Muslim Society of Nigeria.
The Governor who was represented by Commander General of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina, said the Kano state government is committed towards upholding Islamic values.
Commercial tricycles, popularly known as ‘A daidaita sahu’ in Kano, were introduced by a former governor of Kano, Ibrahim Shekarau, as a means of transportation for women only.
The tricycles were introduced after Shekarau’s government banned commercial motorcyclists from conveying women.
Since Mr Shekarau’s exit as governor, however, tricycles have been allowed to carry people of both sexes, a move the state government has now said will be changed.
