Reports showed up yesterday revealing that Uber is considering an expansion drive outside Lagos - Abuja and Port Harcourt are the first cities Uber is said to be considering.
Tech company is expanding beyond Lagos to Abuja, Port Harcourt
Since the world's most valuable startup launched in Nigeria in mid-2014, the company has kept its services within Lagos State.
Since the world's most valuable startup launched in Nigeria in mid-2014, the company has kept its services within Lagos State. However, it seems all of that is about to change - they have also changed their Twitter handle from @Uber_Lagos to @UberNigeria.
TechCabal reports that the company is looking for partners in Abuja, Port Harcourt, and anywhere else where there is a market large enough to be served.
Like the TechCabal report says, Uber has since become the favored transport option for middle-class millenials like me. Most of you reading this article have probably used Uber at least once.
I am keen to see how the markets in Abuja and Port Harcourt receive the Uber gospel, especially when you consider the fact that a city like Abuja, for example, does not have the same commuter problems which made Uber so attractive to Lagosians in the first place.
