Chairman ofTricycle Riders Association, popularly known as Keke, Enugu State chapter, Comrade Benjamin Ikah, has dismissed the rumour making the rounds in Enugu, the Enugu State capital and its environs, that the Enugu state government has plans to ban Keke operators to introduce mini buses instead.
Speaking to newsmen in Enugu on the issue, Ikah said Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi is a friend of Keke riders, adding that he sees them as people of his constituency and would not think of doing anything that would harm them.
According to him to prove that there is no such thing in the offing, Gov. Ugwuanyi recently approved the issuance of Keke Riders Permit, which is equivalence of driving licence, to help riders who have been finding it difficult to procure driving licence that costs more than the Riders permit
“Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has no intention to ban Keke in Enugu. He said that we are his constituency. If he will ban Keke to introduce mini buses, he would not have allowed Riders Permit. Those who are opposed to Gov. Ugwuanyi are peddling such rumours,” Ikah said.
The Tricycle Riders boss pointed out that under Gov. Ugwuanyi, riders have been having it good, citing the approval of Riders Permit to replace driving licence for Keke and Okada operators in the state as one of the examples to show that Ugwuanyi’s administration has been good to them.
