The Country Manager, Bolt, Oludele Dare stated this in a statement on Thursday in Lagos.

Dare said that Bolt identified mobility challenges Nigerians face which have encouraged voter apathy.

He said it had, therefore, set out to aid the public in overcoming the obstacles as the electoral dates draw nearer.

Dare said two key challenges identified by Bolt were lack of awareness of nearest Permanent Voters Card registration locations and inadequate transport opportunities in Nigeria’s biggest cities.

Dare said that Bolt had come with the offering of a 50% discount to 24 Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) local government offices in Lagos and Abuja to solve the challenges.

He said that the app would automatically apply the 50% discount to the ride as users choose any of the selected locations as their destination

“When we launched the MyPVCJourney last year, it was a mega success with our microsite receiving over 16,000 pledges by Nigerians who commenced their PVC process.

“As the electoral process begins its final stretch, we understand our responsibility as the leading ride-hailing platform to partner with Nigerians and assist them as best as we can in becoming active citizens.

“This initiative is just one of the many ways we continue to commit to developing the socio-political and economic landscape in Nigeria.
