i think it's time we let LSG

i think it's time we let LSG be. For God's sake, other major cities in this country placed a ban on bike operations, and no eyebrows were raised. Did these state governors provide alternatives for those affected before bans were placed on this operation? I can't remember anybody calling the governors of Rivers, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers, FCT, et al, anti-people for eradicating this business ffrom their domain. If you can't cope with this directive, leave Lagos,or better still, go to hell.

HAVE PITY ON THE MASSES

It is a pity that 20 million people are working and just a man and his entourage are just enjoying the larges.It would have better if there is fear of God.By so doing,the masses will have some fresh air

BAD BELLE.

I JUST USED THE WORD BAD BELLE SO THAT SR WILL POST MY REPORT BECAUSE ANY BAD COMMENT AGAINST ACN IS SOMEHOW REDUCED TO GIVE ROOM FOR POSITIVE COMMENTS.

Hundreds of protesters marching against the state government’s new traffic law, Monday, in Lagos were turned back by armed police officers.
The protesters, made up of civil society groups and commercial motorcyclists, planned to march from the Nigeria Labour Congress’s Secretariat, Yaba, to the seat of government in Alausa.
The Joint Action Front, JAF, the organizers of the protest, said that the march was shelved as a result of plans by “outsiders” to take advantage of the protest and unleash mayhem.

how can ACN armed with forged certificates think of d poor

Is ACN the type of party to take over from PDP? This is a case of the devil u know, is better than the angel u don't know in Tinubus ACN! May the Good Lord Not allow such to take place in their envisaged Islamic Republic of D SW! For it would be the rule by ISLAMO jihadist in 9ja in 2015- Its clear by their actions that Fashola, Tinubu, Buhari, Sanusi and El Rufai are all members of the Moslem-brotherhood of Nigeria. If you want the rule by Islamos in BH, then go ahead and vote in Buhari-or keep on telling us that u don't care-provided he has another born again Islamo Bakare as his VP! Yes we hear u loud and clear! all u want is good governance abi) Then why not move over to Egypt-and see the result of their so-called Arab Spring? From doctors to Okada-soon it will be Molue drivers and Agberos who will be forced out of d West, with their anti peoples policies that has no place in any modern african society! Awo dashed them free education-they gave our kids stones as their slate!

BRF SHAME!

Maybe our politicians should be restricted to 4-year tenure.

BRF used the first term meeting peoples needs and turned on same people in his second term. How are the mighty fallen?

Dear Gov

Our dear governor, I do not support the bill of 3 years for a traffic offense. I will bomb Alausa if my bread winner is sentenced to three years in prison because of traffic offense. That is to harsh.
One week in jail or fine of 20 or 30k is enough lesson for anyone.
However, I must say that sanity has return to Lagos road since the ban on Okada. I support sir in that regard. I do not see 20 to 30 okadas crowding one motor drive simply because the Okada ran to the man.s car. Ban OKADA for life, it is not good for Lagos. It breads crime. We will soon get use to live without them. Saying that it is job is not true.

fashola no difference to military-brutalists

the power- drunk attitude of the military regime which led to the massive demand for a democratic dispensation seems not to be limited to the military brutalists. Decisions made by our democratic RULERS since 1999 has always been towed to favour some political grasshoppers and psychphants while the poor who spend 101% of their lives suffers,
Well!,he (Fashola)is not just been brutal,wat of d uncountable and unaccountable excessive tax charges on d poor in the name of road construction?, yet input from PPP & income from federal government hangs only God knows,.instead of building roads, he ban okada riders without creating jobs. then what different does it make from those rulers who kiil with gun and this slow poison.
Why can't he convert the unnecessary BRT lane to Motorcycle's.
it is a pity, this attitude of his (Fashola) deserves nothing but a NOUGHT. ACN-Bamboo dey work, Jaga' dey SHOP

idiots and jobless human i.e

idiots and jobless human i.e jaf and the so called okada riders.

Armed robbers disguised as JAF

who are these fools called JAF. I pray one of their own is involved or killed in okada accident. These bastards drive against traffic and dont respect rules. the so called protesters should leave lagos and go and ply their trade else where. Can they do this rubbish in other states where okadas are banned like rivers etc. If you feel so poor that you cant cope, go elsewhere and stop killing innocent people with your recklessness.
BRF please its time for outright ban because i think the sponsors of the so called rallies are the armed robbers using okada to terrorise lagosians. please dont balk.

PLEASE, WHERE IS 'OPUTA CHALLY BOY?'

I remember Chally boy going to Abuja one time to protest ill treatment of Okada operators. Where is he now? Or has Fashola also caged him? What is happening? Who is going to stand for these poor guys? Is everybody afraid to speak up against the Lagos state government? WHY?

FASHOLA, THE ANTI-PEOPLE GOVERNOR

The suffering of Lagosians are as a result of Media silence. The Gov. has been able to gag the media and that is why they're afraid of criticizing his bad decisions. Smaller businesses are being killed daily in the name of creating 'MEGA CITY'
Am sure one day the Governor will ask low income earners to leave Lagos for they cannot afford to pay certain services. May God protect the poor.
