Drama as Obasanjo rides tricycle in Abeokuta, picks passenger

There was a mild drama in Abeokuta, Ogun State, yesterday as a former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, was seen riding a tricycle and later stopped to pick a passenger.

Obasanjo rode the tricycle, popularly called “Keke Napep” from the premises of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), through the popular Kuto under bridge.

Along the route, the former president stopped and picked a male passenger to demonstrate his expertise in riding the tricycle.

The development led to jubilation by onlookers and “okada riders” as some of them hailed him, shouting “Obj, Obj.”

Obasanjo had recently distributed 85 tricycles to 85 beneficiaries as part of activities marking his birthday.

The former president said he rode the tricycle as a way to demonstrate the safety of the means of transportation.

Obasanjo, however, urged youths to embrace every opportunity with hard work and dedication.
