Gokada has announced plans to go into delivery and scale boat services.
Announcing the company’s plans, the CEO, Fahim Saleh, said: “We are pivoting to deliveries while transport gets figured out. We were always going to do deliveries and had started to develop the tech for it, but this ban accelerated the process.”
Saleh said that Gokada boat service will launch anytime in February, or “real soon.
“One 24-passenger boat just came in, and another is sitting at the port waiting to be cleared from customs,” he added.
The Lagos State Government had banned the movement of commercial motorcycles and tricycles in some local government areas of the State.
