Some residents of Abeokuta, Ogun State on Saturday were elated when they saw former President, Olusegun Obasanjo riding a tricycle and carrying passengers.
The former president rode the tricycle in demonstration of safety of the means of transportation just as he urged youths to embrace every opportunity with hardwork and dedication.
The ride, which took the former President from his Pent House residence at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), through Kuto under bridge, was done amidst greetings and jubilation by shocked onlookers along the road.

The onlookers expressed surprise at the former president riding the keke, a reaction Obasanjo said was fuelled by wrongful societal classification of all keke riders as miscreants and the tendency of young people avoiding the virtue of starting small business.
