The governor disclosed the ban at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic Vacation Course (IVC) organised by Zone A of the Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSSN) held at Bayero University.



Ganduje was represented by Commander General of Hisbah Board, Harun Ibn-Sina.

Ibn-Sina said the government is committed to upholding Islamic values in the state.

He said the move would sanitise the activities of commercial tricycle operators.
