Mixed reactions trail Joe Igbokwe’s stance on ride-hailing startups

The Nigerian social media space has since been set on fire, as many social media users reacted to the submission of Joe Igbokwe, the spokesperson of Lagos State APC and a cabinet nominee in this present Lagos State administration onGokada’s temporary shutdown.

As reported on Nairametrics,Igbokwe stated that it is impossible for ride-hailing startups to thrive in the country’s commercial hub, as the stiff competition in the industry is gaining momentum day by day.

According to him, if the bikehaling startupsare allowed to operate freely, they will jeopardize the investment of the State Government in the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).

“Instead of partnering with govt on BRT, you invested 5.3 million dollars in okada business and expect that Lagos state will allow you jeopardize its multi-billion naira mass transit investments.

Joe Igbokwe was recently appointed by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu as one of his cabinet nominees sent to the House of Assembly for screening and clearance.
