BUSTED! Taxi App owner denies Jim Iyke as CEO
Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke who according to NAN was set to launch his taxi company, has reportedly been disgraced by the owner of the company.
According to NAN, Jim was set to launch in the South-Eastern states of Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abia, and Ebonyi respectively but it seems he’s not the owner of the company.
Chief Operating Officer of the company, Mr Austin Nnaemeka who spoke at a press conference to herald the launch of the company in Awka, Anambra State on Friday night, said Jim Iyke was only contracted as a brand ambassador of the company but was relieved of his job after he started claiming ownership of the company.
“Jim Iyke is my friend, and I brought him in as a brand ambassador of the company, just like Rachael Okoli and other celebrities here but he started asking questions that were out of his scope.
“He later started looking for a way to sway us into making him a shareholder, and then started parading himself as the owner of the company. He was warned once, and again, making it two times before we relieved him of his job.
“I am using the opportunity of this press conference to state emphatically that Mr Jim Iyke is not the owner of Mr Taxi and has no contribution in the company. That is what I want to tell you today” he said.
NAN had reported that Jim Iyke who is the Chief Executive Officer of the company, is also planning expansion to the South-South region.
He wrote: “On 5th October, we’re proud to launch a platform that provides chauffeur services for the people of South East, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abia, Ebonyi states.
“This is just the beginning. Our goal is to expand the scope of operation to the South South in a matter of a few months after takeoff.”
