Kogi LG boss brokers peace between riders, okada association

The Chairman of Adavi Local Government Council, Kogi State, Joseph Omuya Salami, has brokered a truce between commercial motorcycle riders and the Kogi Central Union of Okada Riders who have been at dagger drawn for months in the council to allow peace and activities to move on smoothly.

North Central Trust reports that the two sides have at loggerheads over alleged mismanagement of union dues paid to the union by the operators, who its members.

Following this accusation, the operators resolved not to be paying the dues.

The council’s chairman, who brokered the peace at Ogaminana yesterday, said the rift between the two parties will affect the ordinary people negatively if not settled.

The chairman urged both the leadership of commercial motorcycle riders and the Kogi Central Union of Okada Riders to be transparent and put their personal interest aside.

He advised them to discharge their duty diligently in the interest of the association and the people they are representing.

The council boss warned every association in the area to act in line with the policy of the government at all levels.

“It is very important that you all know your boundaries and the extent you can push. Don’t hold any form of gathering that can truncate the peace of the land, be mindful of your activity and cooperate with the authorities.’’

He commended the Okada riders for their cooperation and support to his administration.
