    In the world of Uber, this isn’t a very smart move.

      Oga or madam torch, uber doesn’t exist in those states mentioned, that’s why he wants to start and grow from the south east. Please let’s not be negative about this, it’s a smart business move, risky but smart. And it’s also home-grown which is good, not every time foreign, let’s support our own as well.

    This is an excellent move! Every thing cannot be domiciled in Lagos and Abuja! Very smart move !I hope the drivers will be properly profiled, as they have used insecurity to drive everybody to Lagos and Abuja!

    Whilst this is nice and all, there is no ride-hailing in these states because of market research as regards the need for these services in these states. Wish him well though; takes a lot for ride-hailing to work. I hope he is prepared 🙂
