The Quixotic Quest for Bikes of a Nigerian Minister

So it is quite reassuring that this Nigerian Transportation Minister --
in a country swimming in oil-- decides to ride a bike, even when
swimming against the current of public opinion in a country where the
middle class wants to live like in the West. China may be another
wannabe and I'm sure their leaders don't ride Flying Pigeons...
Anyway, it's everywhere and we must ask our leaders what they drive.

They do not know better. Peace and forgiveness to all.
