ISYAKU Mustapha, KABIR Hannatu, OGUNSEMOYIN Olubusayo (2018) Debunking popular narratives about Adaidaita-Sahu riders: the Kano experience

Despite that tricycle (Adaidaita-Sahu) riders are major players in transportation business in Kano, amazingly, there exist few or no studies on the socio-economic characteristics and the attendant everyday life experiences of adaidaita-sahu riders against the backdrop of popular narratives in Kano metropolis. This paper focuses is on the everyday life and expectations of adaidaita-sahu riders as they carry out their daily business within Kano metropolis. In spite of popular narratives that portrays adaidaita-sahu riders generally as people of low life with criminal tendencies in Kano, a cursory look into this problematic provide counter-narratives to this perceptions.
