Onigbanjo (SAN), representing the State Government before the Court, argued that the Executive Order restricting the use of Motorcycles and Tricycles is in accordance with the Law, noting that the Government has also filed a written address in opposition to the originating summons of the applicant.


The Commissioner implored the Court to dismiss the originating summons, saying that the restriction of Motorcycles and Tricycles on major roads in the State is in line with the provisions of the Transport Sector Reform Law, 2018.

The Presiding Judge, Hon. Justice Liman, however, reserved judgment till tomorrow, 3rd of February, 2021.
