🤔🤔But, there is still more to be done by all of us to get a desirable results.
Going forward, we shall be dropping the new face of our activities as a new year resolution.
To 👑 crown our collective effort, we need to draw a plan and follow the it keenly as well as working with the plans.
🔔🔔PEDPA NEW YEAR RESOLUTION
1• WE NEED TO WORK WITH OUR ORGANOGRAM which indicates that our UNITY comes first before anything. As matter of fact, without our UNITY there is no way forward. Therefore our UNITY is not negotiable.
2• ASSOCIATION STRUCTURES: Is the wings that will make association to fly above the sky.
is the 🔑 that will make association to be strong enough to withstand any internal and external treat, so working on PEDPA structures should be our primary objective in the year 2021.
3• We need to hold another seminal with nothing less than 30 Media houses to inaugurate all our new established local government structures.

5• To create a media crew that will handle all our social media network
We will stop at nothing to ensure that these 6 point agendas are properly treated and fully implemented.
To have gotten well over 5000 registered members through pedpa.org and a standard ride sharing application (mykab) as well as gaining government recognitions at state level, federal level and international level. These significant achievements has proven that we can actually achieve more if we all stick to the plans.
According to Walt Disney, All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. More so, We have seen the significant changes and what we have being able achieved in past 1 year and 7 months through our undoubted efforts. We can bring all our dreams and hope into realisation with our pulsating desire to bring about desirable changes in the E-hailing business space.
WE SHOULD All REMEMBER* *that Good things come to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them. We have done over 50% of our assignment to give desirable changes to E-hailing industry, the rest of the task is not as much as what we have done in the past, let’s collectively go out and get them accomplish.
As the President of PEDPA, I Comrade Idris Shonuga Oluwaseun, herein pronounced that our life will not be the same again financially and otherwise, if we work on these AGENDAS to accomplish the great goal together.
Finally, I wish each and everyone of us happy and prosperous new year
