Several residents of Abeokuta, Ogun State, were thrown into a strange world on Saturday when they noticed former President Olusegun Obasanjo operating a tricycle in certain parts of the state capital, conveying passengers from one point to the other.
Dr. Obasanjo, in white native outfit with a face cap, commenced his trade of the day from the Moshood Abiola Way, adjacent to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) mega station, Abeokuta, picking passengers randomly from the location to Kuto Market.
Many residents rushed to the road to observe the former President operating a tricycle, watching him on transit. Several passengers were curious to join the former President on transit.
However, the fun was part of the activities to mark Dr. Obasanjo’s 85th birthday anniversary. The former President who was 85 in March has continued the fun fare of the celebration of the milestone.
Dr. Obasanjo had earlier donated 85 tricycles to young person in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory in commemoration of his 85th birthday.
Obasanjo at the ceremony, “OBJ @85”, gave out tricycles through the Youth Development Centre of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library.
