But while addressing a press conference Wednesday evening, the managing director of the Kano Road Transport Agency, KAROTA, Baffa Dan’agundi, said the ban had been lifted.

According to him, the public outcry that greeted the decision is also the reason for the suspension of the order.

“The government has heard the  outcry of the people, tricycle leaders and their riders.

“The state government revoked the ban following maturity shown by leadership of the association, which is very unlike them, as you will agree that they usually go on strike.

“At times they do things that are against law and order of the state when issues like this come up.
