Here Are The Phone Numbers Of Lagos State Legislators To Call About The Okada / Keke Ban

February 3, 2020

Doing the exact opposite of what the government supposedly intended, the recent Okada/Keke ban in Lagos has thrown the state into chaos. Over 800,000 people (formerly Okada and Keke drivers) have lost their sole sources of income and daily commuters now have to walk insane distances to get to work. If things continue as they are, crime will increase and the peace and safety of the people the government claims its concerned with will be a thing of the past.

Twitter user @DavidIAdeleke came up with an idea on how we, the people can fight this. He put together a list of all the Lagos state legislators, along with their phone numbers and email addresses so residents of Lagos can call and let them know, in detail, how terrible this ban is for the people.

Here’s the list:

@DavidIAdeleke has already called his legislator and shared some important feedback:

There it is, people. Please, call your legislators and let them how this Okada/Keke ban affects you and everyone around you. Now is the time to put our collective foot on their necks (as nicely as we can) and not let up until they do something.
