THE FUTURISTIC TRICYCLE (KEKE) AS A MODERN MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION SIGHTED IN ANAMBRA STATE

0

 

Tricycle, known as rickshaws is ubiquitous and popular. Having been introduced in Nigeria by the then Lagos State military administator Buba Marwa, it has come to be known as Keke Marwa. A term that has come to stay! But one thing about this mode of transportation is the lack of comfort, sanity and above all exposures to elements. Having this in mind, an indigenous company in Nnewi, Anambra State is poised to change the narrative of how a Keke should be by introducing modern version.

Though, this is not the first time this has been done, Imo State in a bid to bring sanity to the beautiful city of Owerri introduced a car like tricycle but an imported version and the product wasn’t that reliable sue to paucity of finance and spare parts until the present Government banned it citing risks and aesthetics.

Looks like a new model of Keke Napep will be rolling out soon, but this version will be more conducive and would give a very enjoyable ride. This can be called the sophisticated version of Keke Napep.

With this innovation, it is believed that the state can key into this after following the footsteps of the sister state Imo in banning Okada (motorcycles) as a means of transportation. In line with the motives of Anambra State government to be a modern state, the project would be accepted .
