The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, has called on all Commercial Motorcyclists, otherwise known as Okada, Riders, to emulate the Sporting and Fun Motorcycle Riders, for their safety and that of their pillion riders.
Oba Adedotun Gbadebo made the call while receiving in audience of the Group of Sporting and Fun Bikers, who annually camp in Abeokuta for Holiday Tourism
Alake urged all Okada Commercial Motorcycle Riders To Emulate Safety Consciousness of Sporting Bikers.
The Egba Apex Monarch noted that the Bikers were always conscious that they were sometimes riding along with their wives as pillion riders, adding that, they could be prone to vehicular mishaps, which made them to navigate with good road manners, etiquettes and road safety laws.
The Egba Apex Monarch said he was always looking forward to receiving the Bikers and their wives at the Ake Palace and Abeokuta as a whole every year, adding that, he was happy that, he had never heard a report of any accident.
Alake therefore called on the Bikers to educate the commercial Okada riders to earn their daily bread without endangering their own and their customers’ lives, by conducting themselves in the best road safety manners.
Oba Gbadebo also told the Bikers that their Group’s name, ‘Bikers With Attitude And Determination,’ should be a theme for campaign for Good Road Manners to Okada and other road users.
