A Time for Reflection and Togetherness

The Iftar dinner was at Barcelona Hotel in Abuja, which offered a cozy and friendly environment for drivers after a long day on the road.

Imam Mansur Abubakar made evening prayers, which allowed those who were observing Ramadan to reflect and prepare themselves spiritually for the fast.

This mutual experience went beyond the limits of religion.

The dinner was instrumental in creating a sense of unity among Bolt’s diverse driver community.

Hamza Uthman, a Muslim driver-partner, said, “We are happy to break our fast with our Christian brothers and sisters. This is what Ramadan is about: uniting people.”

Celebrating Hard Work and Forging Connections

Bolt appreciated its committed drivers, particularly those who served the customers during Ramadan.

Iftar dinner served as a token of appreciation for their hard work and dedication to the platform.

“This is a very special event for us,” said a spokesperson of Bolt. “We are extremely proud to host an Iftar dinner for our hardworking driver-partners. This helps them to break their fast together in a friendly environment and also to establish meaningful relationships within the Bolt community.”

The exquisite menus presented an array of delectable cuisines, with something that would tempt everyone’s taste buds.

The relaxed and jovial atmosphere provided the drivers with the opportunity to talk, share stories and build stronger connections with each other.

“We believe that everyone deserves to feel valued and respected, irrespective of their religious background,” the spokesperson added.

A Ramadan Tradition Takes Shape
