Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has banned males and females from boarding the same commercial tricycles in the state.
Reports have said the ban will be effective from January 2020, and tricycles across the state will no longer be allowed to convey both the male and female genders together.
This new law was announced by the Commander General of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina, who represented Ganduje at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course (IVC) organized by Zone A of Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSSN).
According to Harun, it had to happen to uphold Islamic values in the state.
Recall that commercial tricycles were introduced into the state by a former governor, Ibrahim Shekarau.
