Known popular in the state as ‘A daidaita sahu’, tricycles were introduced by a former governor of Kano, Ibrahim Shekarau, as a means of transportation for women only, after his government banned commercial motorcyclists from conveying women.
However, when he left office, tricycles started conveying people of both sexes, a move that Governor Ganduje’s government now seeks to correct.
