Ride-hailing company set to launch in Abuja, rival Uber

The likes of Taxify and Uber have continued to gain grounds in Nigeria and put the traditional cab companies out of business.

The Estonian ride-hailing tech company is set to give Uber a run for their money in the FCT just like they planned to do in London.

Taxify continues its expansion into major cities, despite the setback it encountered almost immediately after its launch in London.

Here are Twitter reactions that have trailed the announcement of Taxify’s imminent launch:

This user is pumped about cheaper airport transit fares Taxify has stated it would bring.

And it’s also looking very much like these set of techies are far from loyal to Uber, if at all they use them, judging by the welcoming comments directed at Twitter.

Abuja faithfuls are excited indeed to welcome Taxify, a company which has been perceived as a cheaper alternative to Uber, offering riders and driver partners reduced fares and better commissions.
