 ORide, a new and innovative on-demand motorbike ride-hailing service has launched its services in Lagos Nigeria with immediate expansion plans throughout Nigeria.

Driven by technology, the ORide service is accessible via the OPay app – a super app that’s available on Android and iOS, with features that cater to a range of lifestyle demands including food order and delivery, utility bills payment, cash access and more.

Launched in May 2019 with initial operations flagging off in Lagos, the service has since expanded into other cities like Ibadan.

The service launches with ORide Green, its flagship motorbike models of 200cc engine specification aimed at servicing long distance trip requests as well as ORide Street, its lighter offering to cater to shorter intra-city trips.

ORide is a solution to a myriad of transport challenges, particularly heavy traffic. The service offers flexible payment options including cash, card payment, and payment through the OPay app that allows riders to access promotional offerings.

Iniabasi Akpan, Country Manager at Opay says About 25-30% of the Nigerian adult population are uneducated, poor, and have little or no access to financial services. As a business, we exist to remove the barriers to financial services and access to a better quality of life for the underprivileged and the financially excluded.

Buying Authentic Alcohol In Nigeria

121 total views, no views today

We know the dilemma people face in getting authentic wines & spirits in Nigeria.

The problem starts with our mindset, as we are keen on getting good prices, which is fine for a smart consumer or business owner. But this drive, should not sway you away from considering the standard of what you are buying, even when you finally get a good pricing deal.

Research has proven that fake drinks are mostly sold at the same price as the original one.

So the question is, why pay so much to hurt yourself or your customers?

Some consumers have been smart enough to download Apps that help to identify fake drinks through the bar code. However,from our research, fake drinks are refilled into bottles with the original bar code. So you might just be shooting yourself on the foot with all that technology play.

Fake drink syndicates are smarter and will go to any length to outsmart any consumer by exploiting new techniques from day to day.
The best way to avoid these is to change how and where you buy your drinks from, Most Nigerians believe the best place to buy drinks is in the Lagos Island open market.

But how do you guarantee what you are buying from the open market, when most of these sellers are only keen on maximizing their profit.

How do you identify the sellers that sell genuine products? Do you just rely on word of mouth?

“Madam/oga, na original I dey sell to you”

Most times, these words are just sales pitch. Not a guarantee of original product!

So here is an advice, look out for brands that specialize in just wines & spirits and have championed the #buyauthentic campaign in Nigeria like myshayo.com.

They are the Nigerian …

 One of Nigeria’s leading real estate companies, Propertymart, is currently giving interested parties the opportunity to own serviced plots in three new estates, aptly dubbed The Fairmont.

The Fairmont serviced plots are situated in three strategic locations, namely Alagbado, Arepo and Lekki-Ajah, and underscore the importance of quality and natural living within a well-defined perimeter.For those who seek serenity, splendor, space and security in their place of residence, the Fairmont presents a perfect opportunity, as it is built with those considerations in mind.

In a commercial city like Lagos, it is not surprising to find auto workshops, where dead vehicles are fired up to life, located within places of residence,stealing the peace of the residents.In some other instance, motor parks, workshops or even ‘open markets’, filled with people sincerely trying to make ends meet,ensure that residents do not get the tranquility and peace they desire.

According to Propertymart, who are renowned for developing and managing estates like Citiview Estate, Warewa; Bel Terraces, Life Camp Abuja; and Mitcheville Estate, Lokogoma Abuja, these are just a few amongst over a thousand scenarios that have prompted them to create estates like The Fairmont.

Indeed, The Fairmont is a place where expectations are turned into reality. Designed to accommodate robust communities, the estates boast of well-planned residences, grocery stores, educational facilities, recreational facilities, beauty parlors and medical facilities, surrounded by beautiful shrubs and trees, translating into a very friendly and peaceful environment.

Prospective home and land  owners would be delighted to know that The Fairmont Serviced Plots are within gated estates. In addition, infrastructures within the estates are of superior quality, ranging from paved roads, CCTV, covered drainages, pedestrian walkways, modern electrification with streetlights, lush green gardens, play areas, … Read More...
