Kano: Tricycles banned from conveying opposite sexes
Starting from January 2020, tricycles across Kano state will be disallowed from conveying both the male and female genders together across the state.
This development was disclosed by the Commander General of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina, who represented Ganduje at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course (IVC) organised by Zone A of Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSSN) held on Wednesday, December 25, 2019.
On why the government is committed to imposing the ban, Ibn-Sina who spoke on behalf of Ganduje, stated that the state government is committed to upholding Islamic values.
According to Ibn-Sina, the law stipulates six months suspension, a N5,000 fine or both for any defaulter. He added that the agency would collaborate with Kano Road Transport Agency and other agencies to ensure strict compliance.
The announcement has been met with mixed reactions with arguments for and against the move coming to light.
