The suspension, according to the startup is part of its efforts to protect its riders and prevent the potential spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic in the state. It added that the suspension of operation will start from today, 23rd of March 2020.

Plentywaka is the first ride-hailing platform in Nigeria to suspend operation, following the breakout of the Covid-19 in the country
