    The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has inaugurated 25 power bikes purchased by Kano Road Traffic Agency (KAROTA) to control traffic.

    Ganduje while inaugurating the power bikes on Sunday, said the bikes would be used to ensure that road users comply with traffic regulations.

    He further stated that the bikes will allow the traffic agency move faster to monitor traffic, trace violators and go around the city to fish out those smuggling illicit and substandard goods into the state.

    The Kano State Governor called on officials of the agency to add to their effort in controlling traffic and apprehending those who break traffic rules.

    Ganduje charged them to ensure that those suspected to be carrying illegal items were traced and arrested.

    He commended KAROTA’s Managing Director, Baffa Dan’agundi, for the initiative.

    Dan’agundi had earlier stated that the agency bought the power bikes with the fund it saved from removing ghost workers from the pay list.

    “Sometimes, we see a lot of things happening on the road, we see criminals carrying items in their vehicles but there are no vehicles to quickly trace them to their destinations.

    “However, with these modern power bikes, we will be able to arrest more criminals,” Dan’agundi assured the governor.
