Gabriel is a hardworking, smart, respectful and customer centric Okada Rider in Ajah. But his act attracted jealousy from his colleagues hence for the seizure of his bike by the owner which left him jobless for over a month. My team then met him idle at the estate gate and he narrated his ordeal to us. We therefore made resolution and bought him Okada immediately to start working. He has since continued his job happily. If we can do this considering our small size now, we will do more with enhanced capacity. Long live
