Today, we are going to tell you a superhero story.
This is not your regular tale of capes, overly toned bodies, and an ugly villain.
This is real life….
Heroes are ordinary people who choose to make themselves extraordinary. At Plentywaka, our Drivers become Heroes and this is Zion’s story.
Zion Gbolahun is a Plentywaka driver who became a real-life superhero. With the letter P on his chest, he grabs the wheel and sets out daily to save lives, save the planet, and earn money while at it.
In September 2019, Zion was one of the many drivers who heard about the revolutionary app that would change public transportation for good. He was a young man with big dreams who was ready to work and earn a decent living. Little did he know that as he received the keys to the brand new Foton 12-seater bus on launch day, he was receiving a superpower!
Today, Zion drives a huge 31-seater coaster bus. His day starts at Iyana-Oworo by 5:00 AM as hundreds of Lagosians set out in search of their daily bread. He not only helps people to move better, feel better and live better, but his 31 comfortable seats also help to get 31 private vehicles off the road.
So what does this mean?
It simply means that when people choose to move with Zion’s bus, there are fewer cars on the road to cause Lagos traffic and increase commute time. Automatically, stress levels are reduced for the day!
As he works tirelessly from dawn to dusk, Zion is also saving the planet. You may have heard that vehicle exhaust fumes ( CO2) are a health risk. This is very true. Carbon-fuelled engine fumes contain carbon monoxide which is a poisonous gas and prolonged exposure to these fumes, especially blue or black smoke, may lead to coughing and breathlessness. With his 31 comfortable seats, Zion has helped to take 31 private cars with poisonous exhaust fumes off the road.
We think saving the environment is pretty heroic.
Don’t you think so too?
Zion has been a hard-working hero (driver) on Plentywaka for 23 months winning multiple awards like “Best Driver” and “Most Enterprising Driver”. He has grown from a Hero into a Superhero by being an exemplary leader who exhibits our core values which include integrity, hard work, speed, having fun, and people-smartness.
He not only earns money to cater to his loved ones through his salary and merchant booking app, but he has also been able to create a path to financial freedom. With his savings, Zion has been able to purchase his own buses which he has used to start a logistics business.
If you spot Zion anywhere, give him the highest of fives on our behalf! He deserves it and we are so proud of him. Just in case you are curious about “Chidinma” which is boldly written on his new bus above, that’s a love story for another day. Chidinma is the Plentywaka vehicle assistant who stole Zion’s heart. Yes, you read right!
