The state government had in a statement signed by Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, insisted that commercial motorcyclists must stop operating by 8pm
“Osun State government wishes to reiterate that the closing time for Okada operations is still 8:00pm. This is regardless of the full relaxation of curfew in the State.
“The government also implores all commercial motorcyclists who are yet to register, to do so promptly.
“As at today, records show that more 8000 forms have been issued. The government commends those who have complied and enjoined those who have not to do so quickly with their unit leaders”, it reads.
