After extensive screening at the preliminary stage by the judges, Project ENERGEM was shortlisted amongst the Top 10 final projects. David was  the only private university student shortlisted in the final round against 9 other University of Lagos [UNILAG] students.

After a seven-minute powerpoint presentation to the students and submission of  3 hard copies of his proposal to the judges, David was declared winner.

Uber Nigeria – Uber Car Driving Requirements

Uber Nigeria – Uber was founded in 2009 as UberCab by Garrett Camp, the co-founder of StumbleUpon, and Travis Kalanick, who had sold his Red Swoosh startup for $19 million in 2007.

Uber Nigeria – Uber Car Driving Requirements

Uber Nigeria is an American technology company headquartered in San Francisco, California, United States, operating in 570 cities worldwide. It develops, markets and operates the Uber car transportation and food delivery mobile apps. Uber drivers use their own cars, although drivers can rent a car to drive with Uber.

Uber Nigeria
Uber works via an app which you download onto your smartphone and then input your credit card details.

However, you can book an Uber taxi at any time of the day or night via the app, which provides details as to how long it will take for the Uber to reach you. You can even watch the taxi coming towards you on a screen. And possibly one of the best parts about Uber is that you don’t need to have any cash on you to pay for the trip as it’s automatically deducted from your credit card via the app.

Uber Nigeria Now, anyone can own an Uber taxi and anyone can become an Uber taxi driver. It has effectively democratized taxi ownership, you could say. So the question is, should you invest in owning an Uber taxi or maybe even more than one?

We will highlight some PROs and CONs of the business to all who may have interest in Uber Nigeria car driving. Uber has been in the news lately particularly in the area of drivers, kidnapping, robbery etc. we are not looking into that areas, for now, we are concerned about the variability of the business and its profitability. UBER business is very profitable for drivers in Lagos and Abuja been the urban city. Lagos with a population of about 18million people and with the kind of transportation in the city, you are in for a good cash.

Uber Nigeria Requirements of Drivers

  1. Drivers Licence: this can be obtained from the FRSC.
  2. Lagos state drivers institute ID card: this can be obtained from the Lagos State Drivers Institute.
  3. Background check: this is carried out after the driver has been accepted and has completed the training. It costs ₦20,000 but can be paid in 5 instalments of ₦4,000 each. It is a check Uber carries out with the police, which demonstrates that you have no criminal convictions or charges against your name, and is for the safety of passengers.
  4. Contract agreement between the driver and the owner, this is if you are not the owner of the car you are driving.
In order to become an UberX driver, Uber Nigeria you must:

1. Have a newer, 4-door vehicle that passes any required state inspection,
2. You must be able to provide proof of insurance,
3. You must have a clean driving record, and
4. You must pass a criminal background check.

Once approved, you download the Uber Partner app to your Android or iPhone, turn it on, and start accepting riders.

Pros of uber driving Uber Nigeria 
Ultimate flexibility
An Uber driver can work as much or as little as they want. The phone/application can be turned on at any time to work and turned off just as easily. Thus the driver creates their own schedule on the fly.

No boss overseeing
Although there is a manager for the drivers and sometimes they do give suggestions or pass on critique, for the most part, there is no boss saying what to do and when. A driver is on their own prerogative to go where they please when they please. A driver’s boss at times can be more the passengers. A driver has to maintain a 4.5 or above rating to not be cut from driving. While riders can get bossy at times, the good thing is it’s not long before they are dropped off. The driver rates the passengers as well.

Meeting new people
There are people using Uber around town for all kinds of reasons. You might find there is a general demographic;  you will encounter all types of people of all ages using Uber to get around. Every person that gets in the driver’s car creates an opportunity for social interaction.

Seeing new things in Uber Nigeria 
As people go to different places for different reasons you will get to see neighborhoods you didn’t know about, hear of new events you didn’t know were going on, and become more aware of the city that you drive in.

Listening to music or news while you work
Not all jobs allow a worker to listen to the stereo while they work. Although a driver should be conscious of what sounds might disturb a rider, generally listening to the stereo is admissible.

Free Time
Nothing makes a family man more happy than having time for his wife and kids. With Uber Nigeria , you can decide to work at any time you wish to work, you can visit your kids at school, your wife at her shop and even attend to family issues that may require your attention.

Disadvantages of Uber Driving (Uber Nigeria )
Work/fares can be slow when you want them to be busy
There can be times when a driver wants to be taking fares and making money but the requests are low or there are too many drivers compared to passengers. It can be frustrating to want to work and be on-call but not be getting any.

An ineffective rating system
Customers rate a driver 1 to 5 stars, and unfortunately for drivers, a 4 star average is failing and being terminated.

No interaction with fellow employees
While it can be great to be working solo, at times a driver might want to communicate with other drivers. Uber doesn't provide a way for Drivers to interact.

Little recognition from the management/boss
The higher ups at Uber don’t do much to recognize good performance of their drivers. You either are doing fine, or you are getting cut. In addition, an individual driver’s opinion or request can be very minute to the management.

Wear and tear on car
Uber Nigeria Drivers are responsible for all car expenses. This can add up to significant added depreciation and maintenance/repairs on a vehicle.

Seeing different characteristics of people
Drunk people can also be totally obnoxious and unreasonable. A lot of people take transportation to avoid drinking and driving. Although we sincerely believe that is the right thing to do, being ridiculously belligerent is not. Take for example club goers at Quilox, and those night crawlers.

Wills Clinic Established In University of Lagos (Faculty of Law)

Following the revision of the 2014 Pension Reform Act in 2014, only a validly processed Will or Letter of Administration is acceptable as the valid document when processing the death benefits of a deceased staff as against the Next-of-kin form which has been previously accepted.

University of Lagos

As a result of this development, quite a number of beneficiaries are unable to have access to their estate due to non-availability of a Will and the difficulty associated with processing Letters of Administration.

In a bid to mitigate the challenges associated with processing of Will and Letter of Administration, the Human Resource Management Department (HRMD) approached the Faculty of Law and the Faculty has agreed to establish the Wills Clinic at the ground floor of the Faculty of Law in the University of Lagos to assist interested members of staff.

To this end, members of staff are advised to take advantage of this rare opportunity for consultation on Will-related matters at the Wills Clinic.
