The duo has interests that span real estate, media and from recent findings, transportation.
According to a source in Uber, the duo has over 35 vehicles plying the streets of Lagos to aid the transportation needs of Africa’s busiest and most populous city.
Going by calculations, an Uber driver can make N100,000 on average each week.

Perhaps Peter was giving Alhaji some tips on how to make it big in the transportation sector, or maybe negotiating some cheap petrol rates for his fleet in order to maximize profits? Who knows…
