Bolt launches Business Delivery in Lagos and Abuja

Lagos, 1 April 2020 – Bolt, the leading on-demand transportation platform in Africa, launches Bolt Business Delivery service in Lagos and Abuja today. The service works by connecting businesses with couriers on the Bolt platform and allows vendors to place orders online to deliver products to their customers affordably within the same day or even hour.

Bolt launches Business Delivery in Lagos and Abuja

“Bolt has been working around the clock to provide innovative solutions to assist Nigerian businesses and our micro-economy workforce to continue generating revenue safely during the lockdown,” says Femi Akin-Laguda, country manager for Bolt in Nigeria. “Being agile and identifying ways that businesses can work together is key to our economy’s survival through this crisis.”

“We have launched Bolt Business Delivery with two key goals in mind: to make sure that drivers on the Bolt platform can continue to earn a living safely, and to help businesses selling the essential products defined by the lockdown regulations to get orders to their customers quickly and safely,” explains Akin-Laguda.

Bolt Business Delivery has a simple, easy-to-use web interface. Vendors are able to upload deliveries in batches via CSV or can enter them manually using a simple form. Orders can be set to be picked up immediately or scheduled to be collected within 48 hours.
When adding orders, vendors will receive a price estimate. Once they confirm request delivery, Bolt will dispatch a courier to collect the order at the specified time.

The real-time tracking features ensure that both vendors and customers are fully updated on the progress of the order. Vendors will receive a live status update on the web app and the end-customer will get an SMS notification that their delivery is on the way, the estimated time of arrival and the courier’s contact details.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, contactless delivery is mandatory for all Bolt Business Delivery orders to help prevent the spread of the virus from person to person. The vendors will have to specify a location in the app where the courier can leave the package and they will never be in direct contact with the receiver. The same applies to restaurant pickups, where the couriers do not come into direct contact with the restaurant staff.

Businesses can register via an online form or contact Bolt at

Mrs. Egbunu Kemi, the Management of the Mall has stated on record that the External Advertisement Board located by the parking of the mall collapsed, possibly due to heavy winds. We are delighted and relieved that nobody was hurt in the incident, but unfortunately a few vehicles were damaged.


In her words, “the collapse of the billboard happened in the evening of April 2, 2020, as a Safety Conscious organization, we have hitherto ensured that the entire mall is built to leading standards. The External billboard collapsed and thankfully, nobody was hurt.”

“As an organization, we will want to reiterate that the mall is installed with the best safety measure and our safety equipment are top-notch because the safety of all of our tenants and shoppers is of utmost importance to us,” she added.

The Calabar Mall and SPAR supermarket remain open to customers and is safe, and we continue to do our best to ensure that our stores are well-stocked to meet our customers’ demands.

COVID-19: Osun state returnees not adhering to isolation order – Reps Member

A member of House of Representatives claims that some of the Osun state returnees from Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, are not adhering to self-isolation.

According to the house of representative member representing Ede North, Ede South, Egbedore and Ejigbo Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Bamidele Salam, some of the 127 returnees had, contrary to directives, been playing host to their relatives in the dead of the night where they have been isolated before testing for COVID-19.

He said in the statement:

“I received with concern reports of the positive testing to COVID-19 of some recent returnees from Cote d’Ivoire to Ejigbo in our Federal constituency.

“While acknowledging the good job of the Osun State Government team on COVID-19 which resulted in the isolation and testing of the returnees, I am equally worried about reports that some of the persons in isolation played host to a few relatives under the cover of the night.

“I wish to therefore appeal to our good people of Ejigbo to please adhere strictly to the total lockdown ordered by the State Government and also immediately report anyone showing symptoms of infection to the toll free emergency number of the centre for disease control which is 08097000010.

“If you know anyone who might have had contact with the returnees in isolation, please report same to relevant agencies and community leaders for prompt action.

“Residents of Ejigbo and other neighbouring towns are also enjoined to cooperate with all government agencies by observing health advice and directives such as regular hand washing and reasonable social distancing in order to avoid an escalation of the spread of the coronavirus.

“I will also be joining hands with the emergency relief committee set up by the State government and community leaders to scale up my personal intervention in the area of providing relief to the old, widows and other vulnerable members of the communities in our Federal constituency.

“I pray that the mercies of God will prevail in these hours and finally bring this scourge to an end very soon.”
