Dr. Ojeaga popularly known from his secondary school days as “Oje”, had taken up appointment as a Marketing Manager of U.A.C Foods and stayed in Ibadan for almost six months before he ordered his wife to relocate and come over to join him in Ibadan.

The following Saturday after the wife’s arrival, Dr. Ojeaga decided that his wife should come along with him for shopping at the Kingsway Departmental Stores. With Dr. Ojeaga at the wheel, the wife sat comfortably at the passenger’s front seat of the Morris Kit-car, the car was driven out of the senior Staff Quarters at the Agodi G.R.A. in the northern part of the town towards Dugbe market in the Central District Area.
“Oje!  Isale Aafa! Oje!!!” the bus conductors of the Danfo buses commuting the Agodi-Dugbe route kept shouting as they solicited for commuters. After shopping, on their way back to Agodi G.R.A. from Dugbe, Mrs. Ojeaga observed that the bus conductors kept shouting “Oje! Oje!! Oje!!! When her husband drove past the buses; by the time they got to Mapo area, it appeared to Mrs. Ojeaga as if the bus conductors had conspired to shout “Oje! Oje!! Oje!!!”  on sighting Dr. Ojeaga’s car.
At that point, Mrs. Ojeaga had to ask her husband “How come that you are so well known and popular in this town?” you have only been hear for 6 months and everybody is shouting your name “Oje! Oje!! Oje!!!”  on seeing you.
Smiling, Dr. Ojeaga replied his wife, “Whalai, they are not calling my name. In fact, I don’t know them and I am sure that they don’t know me either. The “Oje! Oje!!” that you are hearing is a part of Ibadan township between Mapo and Agodi. It does not refer to my name. It is not my own ‘Oje’.
