Tricycle (Keke) riders operating in Enugu metropolis, on Monday, received food items donated by the Enugu State Government, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Tertiary Education Trust (TET) Fund, amid excitement.
The Keke riders in Enugu metropolis also received free 1000 face masks produced by the state government, using fabrics supplied and sewed by indigenous traders and trained tailors respectively as a means of socio-economic empowerment.
Similar palliatives were recently distributed to Keke riders at the three Senatorial Districts of Enugu State alongside the Okada Riders and National Union of Road Transport Workers, as part of the state government’s measures to cushion the effect of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) lockdown on its residents.
Receiving the items on behalf of his members, the State Chairman of the Tricycle (keke) Riders Association, Comrade Benjamin Ikah, expressed delight at Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s benevolence and passionate interest in the welfare of the people, especially the less privileged.
