Pragyia banned in Effia-Kwesimintsim Municipal Assembly
The Effia-Kwesimintsim Municipal Assembly (EKMA) has strongly warned owners of the tricycles known as “PRAGYIA” to keep off its territory with their operations, whether they are for profit or not.
In the southern part of the Western Region, particularly in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis, the Effia-Kwesimintsim Municipality, and its surroundings, the use of tricycles for commercial purposes has encountered strong opposition from the general public, who have called for a complete ban from the cities citing various reasons for the ban.
The Western Regional Security Council (REGSEC) decided to ban the operation of the “Pragyia” and “Aboboya” tricycles in the Effia-Kwesimintsim Municipality while restricting the ban to the Central Business District in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis due to the dangers the operators pose to pedestrians and other road users.
Nat Tettey, the Chief Municipal Guard for EKMA, exclusively told Skyy Headline News that the order is in full effect and that the assembly does not want to see anyone with Pragya within its borders.
“We don’t want to see Pragiya at all, whether it is for private use or for commercial use, even if it is the best,” he stated, threatening to arrest anyone seen using it within the jurisdiction of the EKMA.
