A social media user has claimed the CEO of Eko Cab is a nephew to Lagos state governor, Sanwoolu.
Ekocab Nigeria found itself in the middle of a controversy after the company recently partnered the state government to launch ekocab, a ride-hailing platform to connect regular yellow taxi drivers with commuters in the state.
Several commentators took to their social media page to accuse the government of stealing the idea of Uber and wanting to send them out of business, including other car hailing companies.
A social media user however claimed that the owner of Ekocab is Sanwoolu ‘s nephew and this is why he was able to get this partnership with Lagos state government.
