SafeBoda Nigeria, a ride-hailing start-up, has partnered with the Oyo State National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to attend to the transportation needs of corps members in and around Ibadan, Oyo, Nigeria.
SafeBoda, a ride-hailing and consumer services start-up that started operations in Kampala, Uganda 6 years ago, brought her operations to Ibadan on the 2nd of March, 2020 and has revamped the okada (motorbike) industry by ensuring safe, tested, and trusted motorcycles are on the roads to curb insecurity, boost convenience and make lives easy for motorcycle riders and passengers.
During the presentation of donations to the NYSC in Oyo State, Olumide Akinsola, Head of Marketing for SafeBoda Nigeria stated that this is a partnership that will last for a long time as SafeBoda is an organization that is given to creating sustainable partnerships wherever they operate.
Akinsola further revealed that the company would be involved in the activities of the NYSC in Oyo State, and will take the chance to organize training sessions, capacity development seminars as well as hands-on mentorship and impartation of the young people during their service year in Oyo State.
Receiving the donations on behalf of the NYSC, the State Coordinator, Mrs Grace Ogbuogebe, appreciated the officials of SafeBoda for the thoughtful gesture and advised other corporate entities to emulate SafeBoda in creating sustainable partnerships that help to add value to the lives of young people in Oyo State.
Mrs Christy Olatoye, Head of the Press and Public Relations of the NYSC, also conveyed the same feelings and thanked the SafeBoda management for taking this initiative at a time such as this.
