Intra city commercial transport business is known to be a man’s business all over the world most especially tricycle transportation known as Keke.
But that was not the case for Mrs. Charity Mudiaga who took to Keke riding as her main source of business to fend for herself and family.
Speaking to our correspondent who she rendered her services to, the female tricycle rider disclosed that she had been riding tricycle for more than two years, plying Enerhen Junction to Odjikpata Lay Out in Udu Local Government Area of Delta state.
Mrs. Mudiaga disclosed further that it was the death of her husband that compelled her to keke riding as a source of income to fend for her family.
According to her, “When her husband died, there was no financial help from anywhere, not even from his family members and things were not easy for me. I had to take the bull by the horn and opted to Keke riding.”
The widow with two children stated that since she started riding Keke, she has been able to put food on the table for her children as well as take care of their education and pay her bills without any financial assistance from anybody.
Furthermore, she stated that she had another tricycle which she gave out for daily balancing.
Mrs. Mudiaga stated that she had been commended by other male tricycle riders even as she advised widows in the society not to give up in life when family members abandoned them in the cause of widowhood but to make the best out of the situation.
