Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has banned opposite genders from entering the same commercial tricycles across the state.

Naija News reports that the governor made this known while speaking on Wednesday at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course (IVC) organised by Zone A of the Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSSN) held at Bayero University.

Ganduje who was presented by the Commander General of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina revealed that the ban would commence from January 2020.

He said the Kano state government was committed to upholding Islamic values.

Commercial tricycles, popularly known as ‘A daidaita Sahu’ in the state, were introduced by a former governor of Kano, Ibrahim Shekarau, as a means of transportation for women only.

This was after Shekarau’s government banned commercial motorcyclists from conveying women.

Since Mr Shekarau’s exit as governor, however, tricycles have been allowed to carry people of both sexes, a move the state government has now said will be changed.
