The Oyo state government has received the first batch of the Keke Seyi for ease of dispatch of documents and correspondences within the government office space.
The choice of bicycles was necessitated by the need to ensure an eco-friendly environment, devoid of fumes and smoke.
The first phase of Keke Seyi was delivered by Awa Bike Nigeria.
Recall that Oyo State Government in January, 2021 approved the sum of N750,000 for the procurement of 60 bicycles for conveyance of civil servants within the state Secretariat to Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
This was relayed by the Oyo state’s Commissioner for Energy and Natural resources, Hon. Seun Ashamu, adding that the bicycles, would be known as “Keke Seyi” and the pilot scheme would be within three months.
The bicycles supplied by Awa Bike, according to Ashamu, would enhance health protocols and procedures.
