Men, Women Banned From Entering Same Tricycle (Keke Nappe) In Kano
Men, Women Banned From Entering Same Tricycle (Keke Nappe) In Kano – The Kano state government banned people of the opposite sex from circulating the same commercial tricycles in the state from January 2020.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje revealed it on Wednesday during the closing ceremony of the 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course (IVC) organized by Zone A of the Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSSN) held at Bayero University, in Kano.
Ganduje said the state government is committed to upholding Islamic values.
Commercial tricycles, commonly 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.
It was after Mr. Shekarau’s government banned commercial motorcyclists from transporting women. Since Mr. Shekarau’s departure as governor, however, tricycles have been allowed to transport people of both sexes, a decision which the state government says will be changed.
