Easy Taxi Nigeria has emerged the Best Taxi Booking App at the Nigeria Technology Awards 2015 held recently in Lagos.
Organizers of the event say Easy Taxi is recognized for its efforts to revolutionize the transportation industry.
The Nigeria Technology Award is an annual event organized to recognize and reward technology entrepreneurs, innovators, inventors, academics and policy makers in Nigeria.
Adaora Asala, Managing Director of Easy Taxi Nigeria, says Easy Taxi is extremely honored to be recognized for its efforts to revolutionize the transportation industry.
”We have always aspired to be more than just another taxi app, but a tech company committed to modeling entrepreneurship as a tool for Nigeria’s development”, Asala says while receiving the award.
Easy Taxi hopes its success serves as a powerful reminder to its peers and the next generation of tech leaders, “that innovation and social responsibility need not be viewed as separate or opposing concepts.’’
Asala add that, the recognition is “a token of encouragement to continue our work: equipping Lagos and Abuja drivers with technology to earn more income and improve their livelihoods providing a safer and more convenient transportation option for urban commuters and launching our app in new cities to be announced in 2016.”
