EXCLUSIVE: Delta Female Keke Rider Admonishes Girls Against Prostitution, Says There Is Dignity In Labour


A female tricycle (Keke Napep) rider, Miss Onyebuchi Obulueze, has admonished her female folks to be self reliance and braze up to the 21st century challenges been faced by the girl child even as she challenged them to wake up from slumber and stop hawking themselves for peanuts with its grave consequences.

Obulueze who gave this admonition during an exclusive interview at the weekend with HardReporters correspondent in Asaba, Delta State, stated with all sense of responsibility that indeed there is dignity in labour, adding that “Once you know you are not engaged in any evil act and you know that what you are doing is good, don’t look at what people will say or how they will feel. Do it, for there is dignity in labour, I am a living witness.”

Obulueze who is fondly called ‘Adure’ (better child) by her admirers said, “I will love my fellow girls and ladies to do something. Females should stop looking at themselves as never do well and so cheap, avoid being looked down by anybody and be taken for a ride, females should pick up dignified jobs no matter how small it may

“I will never regret ridding Keke, I am even happy I am doing it. I owed my gratitude to God almighty and the state chairman of Tricycle and Okada Riders Association, Chief Obi Nzete. He was the one that gave me that opportunity to become the chairman of traffic. He gave me N150, 000, I thank him so much.” she said.

On whether if she was faced with any challenge, the happy female Keke rider said, “I have many challenges. A lot of pains, sorrows but I still continued because I have an aim, I am going to somewhere. So, if I should quit, that means my dreams are gone. So, I have to press on to make sure that I achieve my goals. Some days I come out early and closed depending on the time, I come out as early as 6:30 am.

“Sometimes I will decide to just rest for sometimes and come out maybe 7:30 or 8:00 am. I have my break hours. I close around 11:00 or 12:00 noon and resume around 2:30pm when students are closing from school so that I can pick them since it is a rushing hour”.

The Abala-Unor, Ndokwa East council area born Keke rider, said she holds a senior secondary school certificate from St. Brigids Girls Grammar School, Asaba, I also attended the City Commercial Secondary School, now moribund, “I will further my education if it is free but for me to use my hard earn money, I will not because we have a lot of graduates but no job. I will use my money to do better things. For now, I will not further my education”, she added.
