“Now that the airport is reopened, we give glory to almighty Allah. But it is not the same like before. We came back onboard on July 8. The patronage has been very very low. In a day before, we usually have 100 cars going out from our park.
“But since we came back from the lockdown, hardly would you see 15 cars. We thank God because we believe that things will come up. It’s getting better than when we first resumed.
“Nobody remembered that the car hire service is here. They (government) gave palliatives to some people, but for us, it was nothing.
“When there was no flight, it means we had no jobs to do. Our members suffered alot. We thank God that we all came back alive. Our families knew something was wrong. Even if you have money at home, it will finish when you take from it everyday without replacing.
“For like four months, nothing came in for us. It’s not been easy at all, but it is part of the sacrifice we have to bear”, he further said.
He appealed to the federal government to adopt policies that will boost the economy, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, to make life better for Nigerians.
“For instance, the price of fuel in the country came down, but now, it has been jacked up again. Things are very expensive. I will appeal to the government, if the economy is okay, we will benefit from it. If part sellers decide to increase their prices, it will affect us because of the kind of business we do.
