At last, the Federal Government of Nigeria has recognised London to Lagos biker, Kunle Adeyanju.
Kunle rode on his Eagle bike from London to Lagos, arriving at the Seme Border on the 29th of May after about 41 days on the road.
In a tweet released by Kunle, he said he was hosted by the Vice President of Nigeria on behalf of the Federal Government.
He was seen in a viral photo prostrating before the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo at the Aso Rock Villa.
Sharing the photos, Kunke wrote on Twitter:
“I was hosted by His Excellency the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria at the Presidential Villa today 07.07.22.
@GodfredIkpeme “Bette! I was waiting for something like this since. You deserve a presidential recognition and national award if Nigeria was a good country.”

@heart_desires9 commented: “At first, I thought why did you have to prostrate, then I remember you’re a Yoruba man and Osinbajo is older than you. Okay.”
