Cab ride service, Uber, has launched its service in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria, but it does not sound like it is to a hail of cheers.
All across social media have been complaints about the tariffs being exorbitant. One user pointed out how a distance that Uber is charging N5,000 for costs N2,500 if taking a regular city cab. And there are similar grumblings from various quarters.
The question is how Uber will conquer a city where a regular taxi ride can be obtained for as low as N300 for short distances. For the moment, the jury is out. Is Uber ready for Abuja? Time will tell.
