The Kwara State government has extended health insurance to Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria and inaugurated 100 tricycles to ease transportation challenges in the state.

According to a statement on the government’s website, the Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, said the health and economic benefits of insurance could not be overemphasised.

He said, “Our profound appreciation particularly goes to SIMBA/TVS for the 12-month warranty on the tricycles and offer of free service for the same period. I also commend the firm for its decision to locate your Service, Sales, and Spares Centre in Offa in Kwara State. The attendant economic benefits of this step will be huge, and we promise to support you every step of the way.

“These interventions included government’s soft loans for traders, transporters, and grants running into millions of naira for dozens of victims of #EndSARS riots. We have also granted non-interest loans to 170 young people to strengthen or get their businesses started. We have offered similar support for farmers.”
