Ex-NBA Boss Lauds Obiano on Okada Ban
The former Vice-chairman of Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Onitsha branch, Barr. Ada Obinna Edozie, has appealed to Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State to expedite action in bringing  mini buses he promised to the state to  provide the needed alternative for commuters after the ban of motor bikes in the State.

Barr. Edozie who is the Legal Secretary of Human Rights Defenders  of Nigeria stated this in an interview with newsmen in Onitsha, lamenting  the suffering the people of the State have been going through since the ban of motor bikes.
She however said the ban was the best decision the Governor has taken in recent time but there is urgent need for the provision of alternative means of commuting people and goods within the commercial cities of the State.
Edozie appealed to the people to exercise patience since the Governor was said to have been  working hard to provide the needed alternative.
She said "The issue of providing alternative is not what can be done in a day.I know they must have done something about it.They are waiting for the vehicles to arrive Anambra State. It is not something you can just order in a day. It takes some time.The issue of alternative is providing buses, which I am sure  they have placed order and it will take sometime to arrive"
She also  expressed  her elation  about Governor Obiano's performance which she said was impressive especially in the area of tackling erosion which has become the major problem of the State.
"He is touching vital areas like erosion and security of the State. I must commend him especially the  ban of Okada. It is a laudable step"he said.
She also expressed her impression about the decongestion of streets and markets in the State which has helped open roads leading to the markets in the State.
Edozie said for the past  10 years she has not gone to Ose Okwodu market in Onitsha apparently due to congestion but few days ago she went to transact a business at a bank around Main Market without encountering  traffic as everywhere was through.
She called for support for Governor Obiano to be able to implement his policies and programmes.Barr Edozie said
