“We started the journey on Monday, July 3rd and we got to Abuja on July 4th. We are here to show solidarity with the President. When we were coming, we had challenges on the road but we thank God, we overcame them.

“Since we arrived, we have been stranded. We have spent 10 days in Abuja. We have spent all our money on fuel and we don’t have anything with us. We have been paying for hotel accommodation since we came to Abuja.”

The TOAN chairman, however, described President Tinubu as a “very kind-hearted father who would use his good office to ensure that tricycles are assembled or manufactured in Nigeria as one of his legacies”.
