25% commission out of #15,000 =3750 naira, Remaining #11,250
For a driver to make #15,000 gross income in a day, you must have covered 150kilometers and 10hours on active trips excluding estimated time of arrival

If you are paying #30,000 naira a week to the owners, you need to set aside #5000 every day to upset weekly renter payment. #5000-#7250 = #2500
If you are on hire purchase, you will be the one to maintain the car, which means you must also set aside some certain amount of money aside to maintain the car on a regular interval
It was Technically and mechanically proven that one will spend above #300,000 a year to maintain a car meant for Transportation service, #300,000 ÷ 52 weeks=5769. This statistics shows that one must keep #1000 a day for car maintainance.

There are others associated cost, such as air time and Data plan that is very essential for our business
UberBolt business model is unhealthy and not supportive to e-hailing drivers business profitably, it’s not encouraging but very exploitative.
This is our industry and most of us have been rendering professional Transportation service before UberBolt emergenced and we know what it takes to be a good chauffeur.
It’s quite understandable that the country is very hard and there is pressure every where which is why majority of us venture into E-hailing driving job even as a graduate and we may continue living in vicious circle, if we do not stand up and say no to UberBolt shenanigans
The propose strike action and protest is going to be very loud in Lagos, we as a recognize Association by State goverment and federal government of Nigeria.
The strike action is going to be all inclusiveness as we need to jointly stop UberBolt shenanigans before they will send all of us out of the business as a result of loss of our investment.
October 12 is sacrosanct to e- hailing drivers liberation and we are going for a total shutdown of all dictatorial app companies.
We need uniform price across all E-hailing app platfroms.
The Welfare of E-hailing Driver-Partners community is not negotiable.
If any app companies intend to run an attractive Promotion campaign or bonuses for their riders, then they should do with their commission not at the expense of the E-hailing Driver-Partners trip fare and fees
THE REAL TIME TO JOINTLY SAY KNOW TO ANY DICTATORIAL APP COMPANIES DRIVERS OPRESSION IS OCTOMBER 12.
Great PEDPA!….,….United We’re Stronger ?
