After the curfew in Osun State have been lifted, the sex workers in the state have lamented over the effect of the ban on motorcyclist on their business. Recall that the government of Osun State had insisted that Okada riders still remain in curfew by 8pm.
The Secretary of Osogbo sex workers, popularly known as Oloso, Tomi Olowe said the lift of curfew is a welcome development but the continuous ban on commercial motorcycles is counterproductive.
“Look, we know peace is important, but now that the curfew is lifted after weeks of lack of patronage, locking out Okada riders at 8pm is not good for our business.“It is the Okada men that help us get customers, sometimes; they are even the middlemen who get commission after taking us to and fro the customer’s place.“We plead with our Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola to be considerate and allow Okada riders more freedom to operate for our sake”, she said.
Although, the hoteliers and bar owners commended the decision, saying night life activities would begin to take shape and the economy of business owners would improve.
