A retired captain of the Nigerian Army and a chieftain of  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Elder Peter Otamere Eguavoen, has urged on Mr. Godwin Obaseki, Executive Govenror of Edo State to urgently revisit law regulating tricycle operations in the state.

Elder Eguavoen, in an interview with The9JaTREND narrated his experience with one of the Keke-Napep driver he boarded to his residence in the Benin City, the state capital.

Elder Eguavoen who advised that if urgent step is not taken to address the unholy attitude of Keke-Napep drivers in Benin metropolis, the situation would continue to get worst day by day in the state.

According to him, “One instance happen to me when I engaged a Keke driver from Cook Road to my house at Upper Lawani Road to collect my phone my forgot at home. I told the Keke driver to wait for me, and before I could come back, the driver left with my bag, containing my valuable items including my handset (phone).

“For over weeks now, I reported the matter in Keke-napep park bt Edokpolor/Federal road and up till now, I’m unable to recover my properties. I also went as far to Iyaro/Obakhavbaye park of Keke-Napep, and no good result has come out of my report.

“Government need to do more by regularizing their activities by ensuring that all Keke-Napep have plate number.  And I also notice that those who have plate number will shade them or have only one plate number at the back or front to avoid arrest or checked.

“If would be of good to Edo State people if the state government mandate members of PUWOV or set up taskforce to check their activities,” he concluded.
