The Senator representing the Lagos East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Gbenga Ashafa, has advised the Amalgamated Commercial Tricycles and Motorcycles Owners Repairs and Riders Association of Nigeria (ACOMORAN) to approach the National Assembly with a bill to regulate and institutionalise the association and its activities.

Ashafa made this statement on  Tuesday,as he made the call at a public lecture on the ‘Roles of Tricycles and Motorcycles in Transportation Development in Nigeria’ at the Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja.

The senator told the leadership of the transport union that such a bill would make it easier for the members of the association to access structured loans with the support of the Ministry of Transportation and other government agencies.”

“Ashafa who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Land Transport, was conferred with the award of the ‘Arrowhead of Transportation’ in recognition of his efforts in sanitising the Nigerian transport sector,” the statement said.

The Senator commended the association for being one of the largest employers of labour at the grass roots and urged the membership to remain law-abiding.

“I must caution your members to obey traffic laws as laid down by the various states in the federation.

“They should watch their speed limits, resist dangerous riding and keep off of-limit roads, especially highways,” he added.
