Bishop Andrew Nkea and commercial motorcycle riders (ben-skinners) after Mass
The Lord has filled our Hearts with joy and has given us another year of grace. As we come to the end of 2014 and graciously enter the New Year, 2015, it has pleased the Holy Spirit and us to turn our gaze and attention towards a very important, yet sometimes neglected sector of our daily lives, the motorcycle riders, also known as “Ben-skins” or “Okada” riders. As we begin this New Year, I salute all the Ben-skinners, all the Okada riders in our nation and especially in Mamfe Diocese. I extend greetings of appreciation, encouragement and assurance. We cannot thank the Okada riders enough for the risks they take to transport people to difficult places even where no motorable roads are possible.
