Ikoyi or Ikeja?

Also, do you need a guarantor for renewal?

Hope the person can pay sha. Thats a very far place. More or less going to Epe.

15k offer.

Is it drop off only or to and fro?

Place is quite far and remote. The only sensible thing is to look at it as a return trip. Assuming the return leg of the trip ends at Maryland (at least you’d be back to civilization), total distance should be about 100km. Trip shouldn’t exceed 4hrs, 5hrs at most.

N10k seems to be a fair deal.

The problem is the car drop off at gate. People usually want to come in and wait which we won't be allowing.

If you have a waiting area, I’m assuming you do, and it’s strictly by appointment, crowd can easily be controlled.

If it’s strictly by appointment, then anyone coming should already be informed about that, and appointment subsequently confirmed upon agreeing to the terms.

Although this would come with challenges, especially if your customers are coming for quick fixes, like oil change,etc.

I haven’t been to the shop, no idea what your setup looks like. Also, I think I previously read somewhere (not sure) that your operate a drop off and pickup later model. If this is really the case, then the change isn’t too drastic.

We're thinking we will do it by appointment only with car drop off at the gate. WYT?

Sounds like a good plan, especially if you’re not running at 100%.

Funny experience today.

Went out on a personal runs today (Uber-ing on hold til further notice). Was in a bit of traffic with lastma people around. One of them jumped in front of my car and snapped a picture, I smiled. I never drive with incomplete papers and I adhere to traffic laws as much as I can because I don’t give these thieves in uniform a dime.

He say make I park, I park, rolled down a bit and asked him what the problem was. Guy said I no use face mask. I asked him why I need one, driving alone in my car with my AC on? Nigger said it’s the law. I showed him my mask and sanitizer; explained to him that I’m keeping safe and that I always wear it when I leave the car.

After causing plenty traffic with my refusal to open my door or come down, the next thing I knew, tow truck magically reach my front, before I could react, car was clamped and towed to their office.

All my tires were deflated immediately. I just chilled, sat down somewhere and was watching. Overheard them saying I Dey form stubborn, say dem go show me.

I noticed a chap there, seemed pretty cool and from my observation, probably the ranking officer there (everybody was referring to him as commander), I approached him and explained everything to him. He said he couldn’t help until the arresting officer comes back (the guy don go back go raid). I assumed he was playing me and reluctantly called someone I know who usually brings a rocket launcher to a knife fight. My contact got all the necessary details from me and said I should relax, she go call me back.

Before her call, arresting officer came back and to my surprise, the “commander” guy ordered him to to release my car after making sure my tires were pumped back.

As I was leaving, my contact called me back, I told her I’d been released. She say she no gree oo, that I must give her name of person wey arrest me, that the person needs to be dealt with. Told her it wasn’t necessary as I don dey go, she refused oo. Said I either go get a name for her or next time I call her she won’t respond.

I jejely gave her the guy’s name.

This may be accurate. Like I also said before, their policies are generally the same world over with maybe a few exceptions elsewhere. I will appreciate if you show me that of Italy, Spain, France and the rest of America. And Uber had a long legal battle/tussle in the UK with both government and drivers sometime back that they were on the verge of quitting, if you followed events. This may be part of the concessions made.

This feature in California was deliberate on the part of uber, to circumvent the law that says they have to prove that drivers are truly independent contractors, else uber must treat them as employees. By letting drivers become selective with ride acceptance, uber is in effect saying drivers can choose whether to take trips or not, without being penalized. So if you’re under the impression that it’s because uber cares more about drivers over there than here, THINK AGAIN. It was just self preservation.

Sorry boss..

Oga Legalwealth sir, please how feasible is it to make 20% weekly trading forex?

Very possible

Also very possible to lose way more than that.

20% ROI is what logical people aim to meet yearly.

This ridiculous target is why lots of fingers get burned.

You should never look at any form of investment as a “get rich quick” scheme, and no matter what anyone tells you. 20% weekly ROI = get rich quick.

Even MMM no give 20% weekly ROI

Took a tour of Lagos yesterday. From Ipaja to Ikorodu, down to Epe, then to Ogba and back to Ipaja. Traffic was way lighter than I expected.

Somebody said LCC was doing promo and I wasn’t with my Toll card, also wasn’t driving my car. That’s how I paid N1k at Lekki/Ikoyi bridge.

The cashier will only attend to one person at a time
The customer rep will only attend to one person at a time

Whether they rush in oh, or line up, or go in one by one, it will end up the same way

I'm not saying people should not go out, but do I need a security or policeman to force me to save my own life?

The bank should just ensure that there's few metres between the crowd and those two officers outside

If they don't want to observe social distancing by themselves, they should please push and pull each other.

Like Carshopper said, some people will be used as statistics

But drivers also do the greater part of the work.

Face greater risks too.

Yeah, I know partners pull in funds to get cars and all. But in case of fatalities, all d partner lose is d car.

The driver loses his life or maybe permanently disabled.

You have to look at it from both sides of the coin

Thats the reason for the review, if things decline consistently

What's your suggestion on what rental fee should look like this coming weeks?

Someone's on my neck. Abeg cry

And the person just buy the Tokunboh before lockdown start

Epp me abeg cry

Unpopular Opinion
Drivers get the better end of the partnership (financially), so they should sacrifice a bit now. I think rentals should remain the same (for now), if the situation keeps declining, then a review would definitely be in order.

Uber original model was in the direction of POOL ride share system (where as u drive u can share ur ride with min of 2 passengers)

The pool ride system can be done in a way that a rider can add or share with ONE friend and an ADD-ON fee is attracted (how the total cost is paid is left to the rider and his friend)


I believe there’s already an option to split your fare and carpool, most people would just rather split the fare within themselves than use the built in app feature.

Good assumptions but I believe reverse will be th case.

The Lagos state government has said company should run 60% staffing.

This 60% will be very cautious of how they transport to work. Most will prefer having a dedicated ride take then to n fro.

Also there will still be PEAK highs (Morning rush n Evening rush). I would wan to think if the app company would implement the POOl ride share system to increase driver earnings - So two colleagues from same office or location can POOl ride and each pays their amount independent of the other.

Concerning rental fee, most owners will hold off their cars getting to work, cuz they will weigh the benefits over maintenance or other KPI.

Now isnt the time to think Partner reducing rental fee but a time partner and driver working together to benefit each other.




Drivers can latch on to dedicated pick up and drop off at a fixed cost. You can get colleagues working in d same environment (2 per pick up or drop off) and charge a fixed rate of say 2k per Person (as you wish).




The worrisome part is the driving witout ac.. bad odour will be at its HIGHEST

It’s really a tough one, we would just have to wait and see how things unfold.

Took a quick survey of about 15 people that I know regularly use e-hailing as their daily commute. 9 of them says they’ll use their personal cars for now and ride share with colleagues, seeing as they already share the same work space. Out of that 9, 6 says they would go back to e-hailing if they cant handle the stress of driving in Lagos traffic. 2 are hoping on hitching rides with neighbors, and 4 says they’ll continue using e-hailing, as it is the safest option for them.

Bro I understand you perfectly, I'm only trying to justify why people are that much outside. U don dey vex wink

There really isn’t any justification. It would be the same scenario if it were a fatal car crash; you’d see the crowd gathering, half of them are just there for their dose of morbid curiousity, the other half to do “eye witness” report. You’d also find a few individuals really willing to help.

The times we live in now (Covid-19), makes all of that unnecessary. Granted Nigeria is a “lawless” country, but the gathering of those individuals, potentially contracting and spreading, is not on the government. It’s solely on them.

This was Ogba after the NNPC fire incident.

They really observed social distancing and wore the necessary kits to protect themselves.

Even if the government is failing us, I'm happy the people are not ignorant, and are taking care of their lives too.

With Nigerians like these, I'm most confident we will manage the Covid-19 even after the lockdown

It’s hard to blame people when they say we deserve our leaders when you see something like this.
