No going back on strike ― Uber, Bolt drivers



 

Over 20,000 e-cab drivers spread across on Sunday, said there is no going back on its proposed strike on Monday, over poor condition of service meted by their coordinating body Uber and Bolt Nigeria.

Speaking in Lagos under the aegis of Professional E-Hailing Drivers and Private Owners Association (PEDPA), the National President of the association Comrade Idris Sonuga said that over 15 members have died untimely as a result of the poor welfare condition and 20 were missing as a result of kidnapping and rituals while some currently suffer permanent disabilities due to non-charllance of the coordinating body over the drivers’ welfare.

He said as a result of the unhealthy and inhumane treatment meted on them by Uber and Bolt Nigeria, drivers cover a minimum of 150 kilometres in 15 hours daily service at N65 per kilometer and N10 per minute fixed by Uber and Bolt Nigeria which amounts to a gross of N15,000 daily.

According to him, out of the N15,000, 25 per cent goes to Uber and Bolt Nigeria as commission N4,950 on fuelling and N5,000 as vehicle rental while the drivers are left with a meagre sum of N1,200 out of which feeding, data and airtime will always be taken care off.
