Twitter Nigeria is just the best when it comes to controversies and hilarious responses.
Is Uber a form of Public Transport?
This debate started on Twitter yesterday afternoon after a user @AyoNaledi tweeted about the comfort she enjoys whenever she takes Uber and regarded it as NOT a form of public transport.
Twitter Voltrons came for her almost immediately condemning her statement, others supporting her.
Honestly can't remember the last time I took public transport. Uber is comfortable. Not about being proud. Comfort is key.

Na so argument start..
Uber is not public transport because you are the only one in it? So taking okada alone shouldn't count as public transport as well.

Awon olodo gbogbo.
There is difference betwn 'Public Transport' and 'Commercial Transport'.
Danfos are both, Uber is Commercial & private.

Tweeting this while on an Okada. Just like Uber, it's not public transport because I'm the only one on it. Privacy is key.

Do you enter public toilet with two people? And yet it is called public toilet. Hence uber is a public transport.

I mean, just like Uber being mine till my trip is done, I can commandeer a Keke and ride it solo. The Keke remains public transport, innit?

I disagree with that notion of Uber being public transport. It doesn't come close.

@AyoNaledi Wow. Is it that some of you really don't know Uber is not public transportation or you're jealous that she can be in an Uber?
