Uber driver-partner wins new car in campaign
A driver-partner signed on to Uber, Banjo Olayemi has won a new car courtesy of uberFREEKICK campaign.
The campaign was part of efforts to celebrate the E-hailing taxi business fourth year presence in Nigeria thereby restating its commitment to driver-partners.
Olayemi who received key of the brand new vehicle at the Uber Greenlight Hub in Lagos, couldn’t hide his joy and surprise at being announced the winner of the brand new car.
Speaking at the presentation, General Manager West Africa, Uber, Lola Kassim, said: “Our unique brand proposition at Uber is that we are committed to creating business and economic opportunities, especially for driver-partners.
“We value our driver community and are always looking at ways in which we can make their experience more memorable on Uber.
We’re excited to continue stimulating growth across a broad range of sectors within the Nigerian socio-economic space.”
Olayemi said: “I am very happy to be the winner of the brand new car; I almost didn’t believe it, but my name was called repeatedly.
My appreciation goes to the management of Uber for this great initiative and for truly supporting drivers in word and in deed.
Owning a new car means I can be more efficient with my work, and offer my riders excellent service.”
Senior Driver Operations Manager for Nigeria, Uber, Osi Oguah, said:“This competition was open to all driver-partners with active accounts in Lagos or Abuja.”
Shedding more light on the metrics for selecting a winner, he said: “The winner of the uberFREEKICK competition needed to complete 40 trips per week in Lagos or Abuja during the competition period, in addition to meeting other criteria.”
In the coming week, the uberFREEKICK train moves to the capital city of Abuja, where another lucky driver-partner will go home with a brand new car.
