The commissioner emphasized that the failure to comply with API integration requirements constitutes a significant violation despite ongoing efforts to maintain a secure and regulated transportation environment in Lagos State.

API integration plays a crucial role in enabling real-time data sharing for government monitoring and accountability during active trips, a necessity for fostering a secure and regulated transportation ecosystem for the well-being of all Lagos State residents.

Highlighting the urgency of the situation, Mr. Osiyemi called on Uber to swiftly seek resolution within the established regulatory framework, emphasizing that immediate corrective action is imperative to rectify the company’s non-compliance with the Data Sharing Agreement and API integration requirements of the state.

Non-compliance with the regulations, Mr. Osiyemi warned, would result in stern sanctions in strict accordance with state laws and regulations, affecting both Uber’s operations and its users. Therefore, Uber users are advised to exercise caution in light of the impending sanctions.
