Drivers of Uber Technologies Inc. in Nigeria have gone on strike due to high fuel prices and inflationary pressures amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is as the company demands a higher share of commission.
Report has it that the company has reduced trips available in its app in Nigeria which led to a sharp increase in the cost of fares in Nigeria’s commercial hub, Lagos.
Meanwhile, a report from Bloomberg showed that Kenyan Drivers are also threatening to go on strike for the same reason.
As the strike enters its third day, Uber noted that they were aware of the protest taking place today by a small group of e-hailing drivers.
TOSTV News gathered that the cab operators are not happy about the adjustments of price, high commissions and lack of proper identification by some passengers.
