Uber Drivers Threaten To Go On Strike On Monday Over VIO Issues....

Due to the recent crackdown by the Lagos State Vehicle Inspection Services; some drivers on the Uber platform are contemplating embarking on a strike on Monday, February 10.

Some officials of the VIS earlier in the week confirmed the enforcement of already existing laws; guiding the operations of professional drivers in the state.

One of the VIS officials said commercial vehicle drivers and those on Uber and other ride-hailing platforms must be certified by the Lagos Drivers’ Institute; before they can operate in the state.

According to the mandate, Uber drivers must possess hackney permits since they use their vehicles for commercial purposes. He also said Uber has also not paid an operator license fee to the state government.

However, some Uber drivers on Saturday revealed that the enforcement is hampering their operations; and that they were not aware of the laws until recently.

Those whose cars were impounded were asked to pay a ₦60,000 fine.

A spokesman for Uber in West Africa; Efosa Aiyevbomwan said he was not aware drivers on the ride-hailing platform planned to go on strike; but said Uber was open to engaging with drivers to understand their concerns.

“We are constantly working to improve their experience to ensure flexibility, increased economic opportunity, and driver support,” Aiyevbomwan revealed in a statement.

He also said the drivers are independent and that they are in control of when they work.
