A few hours ago, a report had it that Uber and bolt drivers in Lagos state threatened to embark on strike from Monday. The recent development started after the e-hailing companies immediately increase fares being charged by the operators.
In reacting to the threat issues by the drivers, Senator Shehu Sani took to his Twitter account and dropped a statement that gained people's attention. Sharing the tweet, he said, "Uber and Bolt Strike on Monday will help Keke Napep and Okada."
However, according to Vanguard, the drivers stated that the companies had refused to review their pricing despite unprecedented increases in the price of fuel, vehicles spare parts, food items, and other essential commodities in the country.
Senator Shehu Sani might be right with his statement. Recall that when the desirable is not available, the available becomes desirable. On the other hand, If drivers of the two companies embark on strike as planned, it will make their customers patronize another mean of transportation like "Okada and Keke Napep".
The tweet dropped by the Senator gained reactions from people who came across it. Those who reacted supported Shehu's opinion. They stated that competition produces a better result.
Others expressed themselves based on how they understood the tweet, adding that 90% of the drivers will not participate in the strike.
