More on banning okadas, street traders etc.

There's quite a few good articles on on the proposed bans on okadas and street trading. Check this one. The idea of depriving millions of Nigerians of a basic livelihood with these bans is both unfeasible and dangerous. The lasting legacy of the decades of military dictatorship in Nigeria is a poor-hating elite with no clue about how to embrace the energy of the masses. Political change will not arrive in Nigeria until we have a leadership who are not afraid of walking amongst the poor.
