Aisha Yesufu Reacts To FG Proposed Cycling As Alternative Means Of Transportation

Aisha Yesufu, a well-known activist in Nigeria, has reacted to the Federal Government’s advice of urging Nigerians to think about cycling as an alternative means of transportation.
In an effort to promote a healthier lifestyle and cleaner environment, the Federal Ministry of Transportation had previously urged Nigerians to explore bicycles as an alternative means of transportation.
The objective is to increase and heighten the importance of cycling in Nigeria since it will undoubtedly result in a decrease in the instances of road accident, according to Musa Ibrahim, Director of the Road Transport and Mass Transit Administration, who made this statement at a one-day stakeholders sensitization conference held in Abuja.
Ibrahim noted that the stakeholders sensitisation meeting is in consonance with World Bicycle Day, which is marked annually on June 3 through a United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution.
According to the Director, World Bicycle Day recognises “The uniqueness, longevity and versatility of the bicycle as a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transport, fostering environmental stewardship and health” hence the United Nations 2023 World Bicycle Day theme: ‘Riding Together for a Sustainable Future.”
Sharing the news via her Twitter handle, Yesufu lamented that the lawmakers are trying to strangle the struggling masses.
She wrote, “The beautiful thing for me is that citizens are now paying attention to the political process.
“Neither the lawmakers nor executive have reduced their cost of governance. They have awarded billions to themselves and tell the struggling masses to strangulate.
“One day na one day.”
