Uber in a statement released on Friday said “This initiative is aimed at providing commuters with an easy and affordable way to get in and out of the city’s business districts.”
Speaking on the development, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwolu said the UberBOAT service is a line of initiative aimed at decongesting Lagos State road networks that had hitherto experienced heavy traffic no matter where you are traveling to. “We want ferries that carry 60 to 80 people,” the governor said.
