Speaking after returning from the OOPL premises, Obasanjo said he embarked on riding the Keke to demonstrate to the people that there was nothing bad in riding ‘Keke’ and using the same for commercial purposes.


He said,’’ There is nothing wrong with young people starting small. The Keke  is secure and safe when handled  professionally and with  discipline.’’




‘’In fact, you can plan your business the way you wish and earn income that you can deploy to other investments. And if you are able to get a second one, you can give that to someone else. So, you become self-employed and you have also employed somebody’’.
