Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, today placed order for 20 tricycles assembled by a state indigine, Mr Stine Chenge, in Gboko.

He placed the order at the Benue Peoples House today when Mr Chenge presented one of the vehicles to him.

The Governor stated that the order was a demonstration of his support for the initiative which he urged other youths to emulate.

According to him, his administration was committed to collaborating with indigenes and other partners who had creative ideas that could contribute to the development of the state.

He expressed hope that the order would enable Mr Chenge to produce more of the cycles and also venture into more production of the brand.

Making the presentation, Mr Chenge stated that he came up with the idea to make the tricycles which he named Wazobiakeke so that transportation could be more affordable to farmers in the rural areas in support of the agricultural program of the Ortom administration.

He said he chose to use available and commonly used motorcycles so that users could readily find the spare parts and repairers.

Mr Chenge stated that the cost ranged from N270, 000 according to the number purchased.
