The three-wheel activity gives a chance to Nigerian to set out on short travels in a helpful book-and-board way. While ORide is as yet entering the Nigerian environment close by other bicycle hailing vyers, the tricycle service comes when keke is on intense interest both on major and minor streets.

There is likewise OFood which essentially conveys requested suppers to your doorsteps. This service is another demonstration of characterizing exactly how much the organization – asides from Opera Mini – is associated with the tech climate of the nation.
