Despite ban, Okada riders

The Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle and Tricycle, Owners, Repairers and Riders Association of Nigeria (ACOMORAN), has said its members are not available as thugs for politicians.

Speaking at the sidelines of its mini convention at the weekend with the theme, “redefining ACOMORAN,” the president of the association, Babangida Shehu Maihula, said the leadership of the union is sensitizing its members nationwide to avoid activities that are inimical to the growth of Nigeria.

“At this convention, we are also telling our members that we are far above been used as political thugs. We are also not available for activities that are negative to the development of Nigeria” he said.

“So down the grassroots we will tell our members that none of them should avail themselves as political thugs for politicians. Our massive votes will go solely to the candidate of our choice” the President declared.

He noted that “ACOMORAN is non-political organization even though during periods like this, we become beautiful brides to politicians.”

“But we have not decided on who to support until we are sure of who will address our peculiar needs of our members which basically is based on empowering our members” he noted.
