Transportation in Nigeria, has evolved over time, right from the use of Lorry’s, Molue, okada, Keke Napep , Danfo ( a saving grace for the average Nigerian) and BRT buses.
The advent of technology has brought forth different Taxi application which helps one request for cabs that will arrive at your doorstep in minutes. Some of these app’s are Uber, Taxify, Oga Taxi etc
Uber, being one of the most popular taxi-app used in Nigeria has become a trending topic on twitter. Nigeria twitter users are currently comparing Uber Taxi and Danfo Bus.
With the comments Wotzup.ng has gathered, it seems it is a question of comfort and affordability.

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.

Jokes Apart. If Danfo or Uber is what you can afford, use it well. Nobody cares what you enter so far you get to your destination. Simple
