In his words, “The new government has not relaxed the law asking commercial motorcycle riders in Osun State to get their identity vests and cards as being peddled around in some quarters.

“Mr Governor knows that the identity vests and cards are for the safety of both the rider and those who use motorcycles as a means of moving from point A to point B, the vests are reflective at night which also help to reduce accidents, it is a must”, he emphasized.
