To the E-hailing Drivers Community,
RE: URGENT NEED TO SUSPEND THE MOTHER OF ALL STRIKES SCHEDULED TO HOLD ON 26TH OCT, 2020
With much gratitude and honor, we bring to you our heartfelt greetings believing that we all are safe and sound at this time!
With regards to the last ALL ADMINS meeting that was held with PEDPA at Surulere Love Garden on the 5th October, 2020, The 25 Group Admins present UNANIMOUSLY as follows:
1•That this Mother of all Strikes needs to be pronounced and go far in terms of coverage.
2• In order to get the best result, there will be need to Create Local Government Structures so as to make enforcement effective and give drivers the needed attention in terms of welfare.
3• That we need to setup working modalities between E-hailing Driver-Partners community and App Companies.
We must say that much work has gone into creating these structures and we are still working!
🤔🤔 WHY SUSPEND THE STRIKE/PROTEST?
No doubt, the entire country especially Lagos State has in recent days as a result of PROTEST, witnessed an unprecedented violence resulting in loss of lives and properties.
As fallout of this chaos which has not been completely resolved, the government at this time is still struggling to put the situation under control! Hence staging a protest amidst this chaotic period might trigger harsh and unfavorable reactions from the government and the security personnel!
🤔🤔 WHEN WILL THE STRIKE/PROTEST HOLD?
Soon as the situation are under control and businesses back to normal, we shall Call for ALL ADMIN MEETING wherein we shall brainstorm and come up with the most suitable date for the community.
Until then, we are seriously working behind the scene to fully establish the 20 LGA structures in Lagos state. This will help us effectively hit our target without leaving any stone unturned.
🤝🤝We appreciate your understanding and cooperation always! We are sure and be assured of our heartfelt determination to move this industry forward!
Please accept our warm greetings in the spirit of ONENESS and COMRADESHIP.
