We have been working very closely with the regulators to help shape the future of e-hailing in Nigeria. Across the world you often see regulation not keeping pace with innovation, but our ongoing conversation with regulators have seen some very positive milestones in Nigeria. We are thrilled that Nigeria is now the first country in Africa to take positive steps towards building ride sharing into transportation policies, a unanimous vote by the Nigerian House in favour of a resolution supporting ride sharing was passed earlier this year. In addition to this, Uber has formally applied to the Lagos Ministry of Transport for a license under the recently-instituted regulations. We have also received confirmation of our application and will continue to work closely with the government as Uber is pro-regulation.
We remain committed to working within an innovative framework that will help shape the future of mobility in the safest way possible. In the meantime, we will stand by our partners and provide full support for any impound fees if related to licensing. This has been true for all partners who have received and reported a missing accreditation ticket.
