A female keke rider at Ogwashi-Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State, Miss Faith Nzokuba has said she is riding Keke to make ends meet because she does not want to be involve in prostitution and other short cut to riches.
She made the remarks in a chat with News Desk Paper at Ogwahi-Uku.
Miss Nzokuba from Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State, said she was brought up in a Christian home, where her parents told her that her body is the temple of God, hence she cannot sell her body for money.
She said she came to Delta State in the year 2020 and was then jobless, which made her to move into keke riding to make ends meet.
Nzokuba said from her child hood that she has always love to do the jobs meant for men, because she believed that anything a man can do, women can do better.
She said her major challenge is that she finds it difficult to balance the owner of the keke because any week she failed to work as a result of health challenges from the job, that things would become very difficult for her, adding that life has not been easy for her.
Faith Nzokuba said that apart from keke, that she can drive cars, buses, repair generators, fix fans in houses and even mould block, saying that she will change her business if she gets a helper.
She appealed to young girls roaming in the streets in search of men for prostitution to abstain from prostitution because according to her, there is no gain in selling one’s body, adding that many girls have died as a result of wrong hustling.
Faith Nzokuba a thirty three years old girl, lauded Senator Ifeanyi Okowa for his various youth empowerment program for the youthy, saying that Okowa has removed many youths from the streets, with his job creation programs.
She said she has not got the opportunity to enjoy the Governor’s youth empowerment program.
