John Oyakhilome, General Manager, Univasa, said at the launch in Port Harcourt Tuesday, that after foray in Edo state two weeks ago, the outfit was encouraged to move quickly into a promising Rivers terrain by the overwhelming warms with which stakeholders embraced their style of doing the business.
Oyakhilome stated, “ We saw how drivers in Port Harcourt really wanted change when it comes to the transportation industry. That’s the reason we are launching today. We are further looking at different states. We verged into this service is to deploy technology in making things simpler for people in Nigeria.
“For Port Harcourt, we saw that effective communication and being able to accept drivers as partners who should feel a sense of ownership in the business has been lacking among structures we met running.
“So one unique selling point for us is genuinely treating and accepting our drivers as partners and not just ordinary drivers. Drivers form a bond, so trying to deal with them as individuals is creating problems in their midst and they don’t like that.
“So, Univasa, coming to Port Harcourt, has tried to bring them together. Aside that we are going to give new cars for some of them longing for new cars.
“We are giving our drivers health maintenance organization (HMO) that would benefit their families. So as they are driving under Univasa, they don’t need to worry about hospital bills for self and families and all that.
“We want also that when you are driving for Univasa, it helps you to own properties, own land, build their houses so they can look back and say because I drive with Univasa, I was able to own this or that property
Univasa’s CEO, Dr Ben Adeniyi asserted that “At Univasa, we want to change the transportation industry, and we are committed to using technology and innovation to drive this sector. And that is what has formed this day’s expansion and we are still moving. We are looking forward to partnerships that will create jobs, provide security and safety when it comes to transportation and we are not backing out from this quest”
Drivers present at the launch expressed their happiness at having more opportunities to proffer services to riders in the city.
The team is also set to launch the platform with drivers and riders in Abuja and Ibadan in the coming weeks. The Univasa User and Provider applications are available for download on Google PlayStore and the IOS app store.
