The Keke riders in Ebonyi state were forced to match in solidarity for David Umahi's re-election come 2019 by the leadership of TRASSEB over their political ambition and love for money from the state government.

The match took place in Abakaliki the capital city of Ebonyi State on Wednesday 15, August 2018.

Some of the commercial tricyclist who spoke with the news men confirmed that the leadership of the union is really using them for political business which is against their individual wish.

During the Rally which the members of TRASSEB, were forced into by the leadership, the government of the state through the commissioner of youths and sports in Ebonyi promised to give the union some unspecified amount of money, when they reached the Ebonyi township stadium, which a share will only be given to any member who presented his PVC to the leadership of the union.

Reacting to this, some members of the union complained that not even a kobo will be given to them by the union leadership despite wasting the time and resources for the rally.

According to the order from the leadership, anyone who refuse to comply to the resolution of the union will be compelled to pay the sum of N5,000 thereafter.

The union paid N200 only per person to ensure the rally hold in support of the sitting governor, David Nwaeze Umahi come 2019.
