The National Association of Motorcycle and Tricycle Union of Liberia (TUL) President, John Kenyor, during the Liberia National Police (LNP) press briefing called on journalists to stop politicizing the restriction on motorcycles and tricycles because their safety matters the most. Speaking at the headquarters of the LNP in Monrovia on Tuesday, April 23, 2024, the President General of the Motorcycle and Tricycle Union stressed that the restriction is not about President Joseph Boakai but the safety of all; be it motorcycle, tricycle or non-riders. Kenyor said he along with his team remain committed, resolute and unbending to the restriction placed on them; as such, they agreed to sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) regarding the restriction, so as to allow investors come in the country to invest in the union. “We are contributing a lot to the land and growth of this country,” Kenyor stated. According to him, they have over the years faced series of challenges; as such, to rebrand the entire union, they have to collaborate with the government to help keep the peace and stability of the country. “This sector is challenged to the extent we encountered new-fellow riders everyday. This is not what we want to be dying untimely for death everyday,” the Union’s President bewailed. John mentioned that, “We intend to create awareness and provide training for our cyclists.” Also, he wants lawmakers to stop inciting cyclists because they are the direct victims of whatever penalties coming across them. He pointed out that, cyclists just in Monrovia alone are about 150,000 which he termed to be a huge number; adding that, each cyclist will be numbered and identified with a jacket. Kenyor called on all motorcycle and tricycle riders to respect the law.
