Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has launched ‘Lagos Ride’, an e-hailing taxi service perhaps to rival private companies such as Uber and Bolt.

He unveiled the scheme on Thursday, March 4, 2021 when he signed a partnership agreement with CIG Motors Company Limited.

According to report, the service will kick-off with a fleet of 1,000 units of brand new “Sport Utility Vehicles” (SUVs) and will fully take off within the next six months.

The Cooperative Society in the Lagos Ministry of Wealth Creation and Employment will give operators(drivers) brand new SUVs for a period of four years, during which they are to pay a monthly installment.The drivers will then have the opportunity to fully own the cars at the end of the credit tenure.

Governor Sanwo-Olu said the service is a social intervention programme initiated with an objective to create jobs and economic opportunities for Lagosians.

MY THOUGHTS:
I don’t know, I’m not a Lagos resident, but I think this is good development.

The  ‘Lagos Ride’, an e-hailing taxi service to rival private companies such as Uber and Bolt? Well that’s okay for me. Besides Uber and Bolt are foreign companies owner by foreigners. We need something indigenous..if you ask me. 🤷

So guys what’s your take on this?

BE SINCERE!! “Lagos Ride” A Good Development or A Misplaced Priority?

Do You Think Lagos State Government Will Ban Uber & Bolt Because Of Lagos Ride?

Let’s hear from you all.
