The decision to issue the warning in Ado-Ekiti was made due to the threat that unregistered vehicles, tricycles, and motorbikes posed to the general security of the state and the safety of road users. This was stated by Commissioner for Transportation Kehinde Ajobiewe.

He said that trucks, cars, and motorcycles that are not roadworthy will no longer be allowed to traverse the roads due to the risk they bring to other road users, citing instances of illegal activity linked to unregistered vehicles.
