Saturated? No! I don't think so.

Uber still pay, we drivers are just too greedy. We want to manipulate owners and gain advantage.

I make 20k weekly and I'm very comfortable with my salary.

Offline trip plus Uber earning makes Uber a better place to be.


Loud it!!!

I am speaking holistically both in Nigeria and everywhere else. At the end of the day we all need each other.

This is true and it applies to every industry in the world.. Supply and demand has to be in place for anything business to exist but what I meant by bringing food to the table should be digested and understood by people with a bit of common sense..
People just want to jump on things they barely understand

Trust me more people will go hungry ,uber has created thousands of job. Uber will not lose anything, Lagos is not even their biggest market. Now the people on the fence does not speak any volume to the market ,uber could care less about the fence people, uber has more people on the road than on the fence ..those that are on the fence could not handle the competition or didn't know how to apply themselves.. Most Nigerians want an easy business to do. It takes patients and time to run a business.. That is the reason why those are on the fence are on the fence

A lot of people just want to argue and have fun actually but in their church mind they know what is going on..
The truth can never be a lie no matter how you tell it..

I don't get it? So anyone that has driven for uber and stops driving will go hungry? GAZZUZZ and others on the fence must be very hungry right now.

Let's talk reality.. In order for that to happen , it has to be a combine effort.. But in a situation that uber is putting food on people's table it will be hard to do .. Too many are gaining from uber than are not gaining.... If uber parks up now, now, now do you know how many will be unemployed? Because of the technology uber has created, we need uber more than they need us ... Lagos is not even their biggest African market.. And keep in mind uber is well know around the world.. Well know than any other app. Uber is brand, and because of that foreigners feel more comfortable with using uber


They do not like the truth obviously.. grin

If you think drivers are not putting food on their table, goan ask why they usually send mail to drivers that stopped driving on Uber/Bolt for over a month to ask why they haven't been driving. Abi you think say na cos them care about the driver

The epistle you wrote doesn't change the fact that both parties put food on each other's table. But if you think otherwise, no sh!t bro.

Well you still do not get my point but it can be done in practical..
Stop driving and let's see whose table would lack food then.. grin

You both are seeing things from different angles.
I guess you're a fellow Economist grin.
People have given up on this country, protests isn't gonna work. More than half of people doing Uber are using it as stop-gap until they find something better. People that complain here feel Uber may decide to work on their negative mentions to improve and also another reason for the rants is to share experience & testimonies wink
Maybe Naija is a 10th world country sef. I follow join people who may never come back to stay except things get better (na to come dey visit family & friends). I go come back after retirement sha grin

People do not understand that this is what it is all about.. Its called ride sharing and Nigerians turned it into a full time job and a do or die affair which is not our fault but the bad leadership we have always had.

Having a technical skill is actually underrated in this part of the world but look at the way things are with people that have an option GAZZUZZ for example just jumped on the fence and is sitting there comfortably because of his skill and sweet mouth which I envy sef (No offense sir) but you are probably the best example in this situation because most people here probably know you or have heard about you one way or the other..
Do you know why he can always stand his ground and tell you NO or YES at any point in time?
He has an optio(Not very common skill) you can go back to his reason why he stopped driving in the first place lol.
He sells cars and has money to import oils, coolants, and now he has started selling refrigerating gas..
This man here has common sense and is actually thinking outside the box instead of complaints he is using the supply and demand chain to his advantage which makes me understand that he has western exposure..
Same goes for Dru23 and every time they make a comment you can see confidence and sincerity in all they say but most people will see them as proud but its not that way my people..
You mentioned something about emotions and I just had to lol it cause there is no emotion in business..
If you want to survive in the commerce world you have to be able to stand your ground and that is what the drivers complaining cannot do which makes me see the complains as unreasonable..
Let me take you guys back to a memory lane just this last December felt like it shouldn't end do you know why?
Demand was high and supply was relatively low..
I am a very Lazy driver and I own my car and also have an option but if December can continue I will be driving on a reg cause there was a day I had 25k net I cannot remember how much fuel but I was ready to drive all week sef but my Lazy ass does not even like driving I just do it cause money is meant to be made..
All in all we can all be sincere with ourselves and let us face what this thread is all about..
Let's make positive moves
Don't try to force anything on anybody..
If Jesusson wants to show his earnings let him share..
If you don't want to share yours its not a crime..
Let's start by having self respect and respecting each other..
They say little drops of water makes a mighty ocean and maybe if we start having a bit of unity from the very few reading this thread then something positive might come up on the long run..

PS this is just an opinion of mine and I also respect everyones opinion and perspectives cause life is all about diversification..
I hope we all have a great week ahead

Hello sir, both parties are putting food on each other's table and helping each other's life.

Regards

You miss the part where they mentioned not making profit yet..
Also do not deceive yourself by feeling you put food on their table if you quit today someone else would be waiting to take up the Job like immediately because you don't have options in this shit hole which is why most of the complainers still wake up every morning and drive all day and night..
If they decide to quit and pack ehn
I don't even need to explain to you what will happen to all drivers and partners just think for yourself..

The main problem is being avoided..
I have not seen any of you mention having a protest against the greedy government that is causing the bad roads, unemployment, corruption no good health care and non functional infrastructures..

I feel we Africans are too delusional to tell ourselves the truth which is the main reason why we are where we are today..
Someone mentioned something about not leaving that complaining might bring up a solution, all I can say is you are just being delusional in all ramifications..
According to economics everything that is happening in the etaxi industry is very normal its called the power of demand, supply and price..
The higher the demand the lower the price and vice versa as long as supply is at a point of equilibrium, but right now there is high supply of the service and for demand to increase the price has to be reduced..
Remember that this supply of service is having a positive effect on the mechanical industry and the automobile industry (car parts included) you can Ask Gazzuzz and others
If truly you want things to go back to at least an average point sacrifices has to be made and this includes a lot of drivers quoting the job and doing something else which is logically impossible in this Shit hole we live in..
I do not like to argue actually but I just like being sincere with myself.
As it stands right now I can only tell you the latest slang I heard
*WE DIE HERE*
The day me as a person gets the chance to leave this country for a working economy I doubt if I am ever coming back cause this is a 3rd world Country..

Also this is just my opinion though and I am only looking at things from a Logical perspective

LOL, I don't need to lie to you to convince you. For me, the question to be answered regarding you is this:

Would you be registering early or would you be joining the crowd much later?

That's how confident I am God sparing our lives.

With what I just read about your Company its not going to be easy cause people down here prefer not to pay at all..
So riders dictatorship is not very reasonable for Africans especially Nigerians but me I will still register sha you never can tell what the outcome might be..

.

I belong to one of this ehailing whatsapp group, they keep on spamming us with message to patronize one of the indigenous local ehailing companies, sadly they are all in for the money... Any driver foolish enough to believe that they really care about you is in for a long thing. They should go build their satellite, they should go build their phones, why not even build the cars or parts that is used on the platform. How can you be claiming indigenous when all the tools used is at least 99% foreign. Honestly i get tired of the phrase patronise us we are local we have your best interest.

Glad Uber has quietly shut them up with the 3% commission, if they are truly local and care about our interest let them indigenously hit us with a 1% commission rate, then we will know that they are really here for the drivers' interest.

They even can not see the handwriting on the wall, that it is in their own collective interest to all merge together and form one strong indigenous ehailing app company that can at least give Uber/Bolt a chase for their money. Greed and Pride will not let them tow this path, until it is too late.

Indigenous ehailing companies see easy money and they are all forming saviour of the Nigerian Apps drivers.

Indigenous ko, indigo ni!

They cannot afford rigorous marketing how will they even survive being in a competition?

Are u aware that uber is now 3% percent commission now ? So I think uber is trying to be fair ...I just feel that if something does not pay person and u try to fix . You quit and look for something better.. Obviously the shouting and screaming has not worked. So the best thing is to look for an alternative... I can't come and kill myself.. Have done my part to help drivers that work for me. I do all my expenses both minor or major .. So I try to contribute in my own little way.

Same goes for drivers, drivers won't undestand how car owners borrow, sweat ,sacrifice just to buy a car.. And Nigerian banks are not loan friendly to small business owners.. And the high rate on loans basically kills a business.. Than you have some not all ,crazy driver thinking because you gave him a car to drive, he is now doing the owner a favor, better yet driver drives and damages the car. Dumps it for owner
Seriously if drivers can just walk into a bank and ask for a loan .. Especially the conditions you have to go through.. Only if drivers can experience that ..

seriously car owners won't understand until they drive and see for themselves, I was among the car owners bashing rental guys earlier until I drove and see 4 myself,
People work their ass off day and night, the waist pain, leg pain, life threatening risk involved at the end struggle to pay up a person relaxing/sitting in his comfort zone and end up saving 15-20k for himself cry..
and the PON PON guy is busy jubilating thinking he has made it in life grin

Did you ask yourself what the person sitting at home did to make the 1.5m or 2m?
But since they decided to drive on rental, there's also no point complaining, it's either you drive or return car owner's keys simple

Buy a Tokunbo Honda Civic 2005 for between 1.1m to 1.3m, use and sell as Nigerian used car for between 600k to 800k
Buy a Tokunbo Toyota Corolla 2005 for between 1.7 to 1.9m, use and sell as Nigerian used car for between 1.1m to 1.3m
In both cases, the car sold for about 500 to 600k less than Tokunbo price

Now, talk to me again about second hand value.

PS: the above statement assumes that both vehicles are properly maintained

You are missing the part where I said liquidity is faster, also you have to consider the demand and supply chain when it comes to car sales..
Example is the Kia above how do you explain that?

I never bought fuel 30-35k.

Maximum fuel not more than 20-25 weekly, then I'm making more.

You guys are just village bully.

I don't do any other job apart from Uber. So if I'm not making money as you frustrated elders claim. I won't be with Uber.

I know I pay my weekly rental without default, AND still save 20k weekly.

pope191, when that elder Quitnotice that claim, he started with Uber from the good old days, doesn't know Uber don't post earnings with Uber commission, nobody noticed it, was totally ignored...

Xneg have warn you guys not to pay attention to me, still he quote me all the time.

I'm so sorry guys I can't reply all of you, from site engineer, to Quitnotice house agent. AND BANK MANAGERS. keep ur old career aside, your new career and job title is Uber driver.

I really like your energy..
You get their time gan..
I am really enjoying every bit of it and I also know the simple truth.
More than half of the times you mention uber is cool as far as you are concerned they just get angry again in their head, lol.

My advice for drivers and partner
(As long as it pays the bills just hold on to it)

People that are on the fence have other means of making money like our number one mechanic and co..

We that we are on the field know what we are making and how we are going about it so its best to keep the ball rolling at all times..
