If you come to Nigeria, you would discovered lots of people especially youths are engaging in commercial motorcycle riding business. This motorcycle business popularly called "Okada" is flourishing and can be found operating in every parts of the federation. Both youngs and adults, graduates and illiterate are found in this trade. They are doing it in order to survive and take care of their families.
They resorted to this business as a result of poor economic situation in the country. Some of them are artisans, but because they don't have steady electricity to operate, they have to embark on Okada riding.

In my country the number is ever increasing. This is because the rates of an unemployment are so high that the graduates are desperate enough to engage themselves in the commercial motorcycle riding.

Same here in my country the number is ever increasing. They need to make money and fend for their families so they go into this due to the high rates of an unemployment

Many youths join the motorcycle business because it's cheap and not so demanding to start. Also, they have no good source of business. Most ofem are graduates.

It is not a good business if you agree with me. It is a time wasting exercise that do not controls respect in the society. It is an exercise that drains off energy from them. It makes them look older than their ages. People are doing it for the sake of survival and not their passion.

Well, I've seen some of them that makes a reasonable amount of money from it. The purpose of every business venture is to maximize profit. But personally I do not like those type of business.

I think it is the easiest and fastest means to start making money. It doesn't require any special skills to enter the industry. And there are no stringent rules and regulations / barrier to entry.

I personally can't do the business but it has proven to be a life saver for some people to survive with their families. Of course, it gives good money because it is part of transportation business.

When there is high employment rate in any country the citizens will always look for means for them to survive and is the reason why you see a lot of people being self-employed in order for them to make both ends meet.

What does this commercial motorbike ride mean? Is he some sort of online taxi driver, package/food delivery courier, and something like that? If true, then there are many such things in my country. They work closely with application providers such as shopee, Gojek, Grab, Maxim, and so on.

What are you even saying? Do you know how essential the services of those people are to society? Who is even talking about respect when it comes to legit money? That's an archaic thinking. This kind of mentality is what is keeping Nigerians impoverished.

This kind of business is mostly common in many parts of the world. If you are a good rider you can maximize profit from it if you're consistent enough.

You can't really blame them though, these days there are no jobs out there so the youths have no choice but to go into the bike riding business. It is usually lucrative.

I do not see a lot of people engaging in this kind of business in my location. Most of them who do this are into food delivery. I can understand this kind of business can be popular in countries with high unemployment rate.
