President Tinubu’s announcement of a ban on private cars in Nigeria has taken many by surprise, and has left many wondering about the practical implications of the decision.
While the government has said that public transportation will be made more accessible and affordable, there are still many unanswered questions.
How will this affect people who live in remote areas with no access to public transportation? How will people get to work or school if they don’t have access to public transportation? Will there be exceptions for those with medical conditions or disabilities?
President Tinubu’s ban on private cars extends to all citizens, including politicians and government officials.
The President stated that even he and his family will be using public transportation from now on. Some have praised the decision as a bold step towards reducing the country’s carbon footprint, while others have raised concerns about the lack of infrastructure and services to support this change.
