The Okada is many things to different people.
To some he is a reckless dare-devil, a speed hungry maniac, to be avoided as much as possible. To others however, beyond being the last resort for the most inaccessible of grid locked traffic jams and topographies; the Okada often turns out to be a life-saver. He is a Dear Angel when one needs to get where one is going in a hurry.
The Okada rider is a product of Nigerian-urban evolution, an economic necessity, and for many, the only logical means of coping with the realities of a crippled transportation system. He is a last mile solution par excellence.
“So wey you dey go,? E dey inside well well!!” “No worry oga, madam, na Okada go fit take you.”
Thankfully Okadas do not take to the skies.
