By Matthew Eloyi
The Kano State Road Traffic Agency (KAROTA) has reached a pact with tricycle operators in the state to reduce their operational permit from N8000 to N5000.
This is contained in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Agency, Alhaji Nabulusi Abubakar on Thursday in Kano.
It was learnt that the tricycle operators had gone on strike from January 10 to January 12 to protest against the N8000 operational permit levied on them.
Abubakar said that the meeting between the two parties was held at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Farm Centre, Kano.
In his words, “Those present at the meeting include the counsel to the tricycle operators, Mr Abba Hikima; the Managing Director of KAROTA, Mr Baffa Babba-Dan’agundi; a representative of the State Government and the Legislative Coalition of the State.
“The parties agreed to a daily ticket payment of N100 per day, Sunday inclusive, a new motor vehicle drivers permit adjustment fee from N18, 000 to N12, 000, and a renewal fee reduction from N8000 to N5000.
“All payments are to be made before February 2.”
