While gokada was busy settling management issues,opay was busy with strategy,poaching best hands from gokada staff. It shouldn't be a surprise though for people with good knowledge about the industry ,gokada also did a cameo on max.ng who really is the Pioneer of this bike hailing business.
I am not a business guru but I think Salem did a wrong move with his former partner. The timing wasn't right for his exit. The best advice have been given on LinkedIn which is to partner with a fintech to be able to survive.
For those waiting for opay to crash due to the almost free rides,you might be in for a shocker . Those guys are here to ball and have good strategy to play with.
Max ng might eventually be the main competitor of opay due to their access to funding and also ability to quickly find a niche in the industry.
All these are just random thoughts anyway.shalom

Who owns opay?
Is it a Nigerian?

The CEO of Opay is a Chinese man. Opay's got heavy funding from Chinese backed venture capitalists

Opay has pursued them out of the market. How can 500million gokada compete with 500million opay. They better restrategize fast before O pay buys them up.

More like $50m OPay

Spot on man!! For real, Opay is owned by a Chinese man and the company is backed with cheap funds from Chinese backed venture capitalists. Opay has a lot of funds to waste and they ain't slowing down anytime soon

This look like a very gold and serious company who know what they are doing
RATHER LATE THAN SORRY!
All the very best guys.

Lazy Youths complaining of hunger, go register and get a GOKADA bike NOW!
Buhari won't come to your house and serve you dinner!
Stop WAILING, start RIDING GOKADA!! cheesy

We rather be on the sides with genuine people that really wants the best for the country.
That was why we supported Omotola during her stands against what is not going on well in the nation.
But for wailers, aka, children of hate and perdition that will only see negative things around, those that are too blind to see and appreciate the good things going on, we will always be against them.
You can see we are not a party person, we don't talk of any APC politicians, we only focused on our daddy and his Vice 99% of the time.
There are many bad eggs among the APC politicians just as we have in the 16 years of stealing, looting and misrule in PDP.

If we see you criticize during the bad times and appreciate during the good ones you see, then we are on the same page.
But for the ones looking for bombings and bad and negative news every morning they wake up, then we are not on the same side.

We only took the time our from the interesting CHELSEA vs Liverpool game we are watching right now to reply you. maybe cos you are a lady and more because this is the first time we are seeing you quoting us.

Hope you gerrit now, and if not, we will categorize you as someone whose soul is filled with bitterness as they abound here, If not, it is good if you criticize when things are bad and praise when you see good things.
Some wailers eyes are blind permanently to good things in life.
Okay bye, back to support the BLUES.
Hope this helps?!
This is the longest post we have ever made to a post like this!
(We don't even know we have typed this much!)
Have a nice evening madam Yetty! wink

You took a ride and you ate disappointed at the service your company provides to your customers.
You decide to shut down same day.

Buy new and sexy bike in 12 days
Provide better service in 12 days.
Please how many day did he take to plan all these

This is something that should be commended

He went into the field, noticed setbacks and has chosen to address them, rather than leave them as they are. He understands the importance of quality to the integrity of a business

Most Nigerian CEOs do not understand this. They just sit in some Air Conditioned office and sign papers, without bothering to find out if their policies are being implemented properly. They are so detached from their own business, they might as well not run it.

Yettymuse, disappointed we didn't see your reply to our post where we took out our precious time to reply your quote of us.
Despite you being online for the past 2 hours.
Now we know where you really stand!
For future sake, try not to quote us again, or we'll put you where you rightly belong.
We don't have time for wailers and their rubbish.

Why should I ride on a bike when there is uber? Do we have special lane for bikes? All these bike riders that are popping trams like bus drivers. Both will just be like werey on the highways. Hope they don't break someone's legs sha.

That's the reason most companies don't do quality checks on their products because we would rather swallow poison that is cheap than pay for a healthy fruit juice that is cost.

Our attitude generally is really toxic and off putting.

I commend the gokada CEO of he still carries out his intention.
He is indeed a worthy example.

this above is very true, sad and unfortunate

The Opay poached all the developers on Gokada. I mean they got the team lead and he went to Oride with all his developers. Immediately the former CEO left Gokada, the guys felt they didn't owe Gokada anything again.

I really hope Gokada survives this but I fear it's gonna end up like Lamudi. Maybe it's even Max that would acquire it eventually.

Do you live in Lagos?
Do you work or do business in Lagos?
If you do, you won't be writing this.

I have 2 cars and before I go out, I use Google map to check my route if there's traffic. If the traffic is much, i leave my cars and use Gokada.

My biggest deal this year, I used Gokada to the meeting. Traffic no fit comot food from my mouth.

Nigerians are generally lame ducks. Here is a foreigner coming to your country to found an Okada hailing service with a bulk of the revenue goung outside.

Before anyone dreamt of Uber or the idea of someone getting a ride on a stranger's car in the USA, we had Kabukabu. Sad that no Nigerian ever thought of removing the inefficiency of getting on a Kabu-kabu by connecting kabu-kabu riders to drivers that own kabu-kabu.

Apparently, you may be the only one. Issues don't start in a day, that was a decider for him. After all strategies, he apparently decided to be on the field to know what exactly it feels to be having such challenges amongst others. Truth is, some of those bike men/ Uber / taxify drivers are crooks! They always want to get extra money from passengers by trying to manipulating the system.
