The Plateau State Government has announced relaxation of curfew in Jos North Local Government Area and lifted the ban earlier placed on operations of tricycles commonly referred to as Keke.
The Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong took the decision after a meeting of the State Security Council held on September 7, 2021 at the government house.
Makut Macham, his Director of Press and Public Affairs made this known in a statement.
He said the curfew in Jos North will be enforced from 10pm to 6am, with effect from Wednesday.
Lalong, however said, the curfew in Jos South and Bassa Local Government Areas will still continue from 10p.m. to 6a.m.
He has also lifted the ban earlier placed on operations of tricycles, commonly referred to as Keke.
“This means that no tricycle will be allowed to operate between the hours of 6p.m. to 6a.m.
“However, the ban on motorcycles within the Jos/Bukuru Metropolis remains in force and will continue to ensure that violators are arrested and punished according to the law.
“The government is working on innovations, legislations and enforcement modules, for enhancing security, effectiveness and availability of public transportation in the State.
“It will soon be unveiled to ensure the safety of passengers,” he said.
The Plateau state Governor thanked the people of his state for their cooperation, while urging them to continue supporting the Government in restoring normalcy to the State.
