    GIG Mobility (GIGM, formerly God is Good Motors) is an African technology based transportation platform, founded and headquartered in Nigeria. [1] GIGM currently operates in Nigeria and Ghana, West Africa. It was established in 1998 and is known for moving thousands of commuters daily across Nigeria and Ghana. [2]

    History

    GIG Mobility, then God is Good Motors, was founded by the enterprising couple Edwin and Stella Ajaere in 1998 with a vision to provide premium bus services across Nigerian cities. Their son, Chidi Ajaere, took over administration of the company which led to a reinvention of the business in 2010. [3] Ajaere improved the business model of the transport company; relying on the popularity of smart technology to power transport operations from ground up. [4]

    Between 2009 and 2019, GIGM consolidated the advances in its operation and started to identify as a technology company operating in the transport space. [5] Since becoming GIG Mobility, the company has also seen a number of structural adjustments and has spun off a number of services powered by technology. [6][7][8]

    In 2019, GIGM expanded outside Nigeria and launched in Ghana with operating terminals in Accra and Kumasi, two of the country's most thriving business enclaves. [9][10] In February 2020, GIGM's interface hinted at the launch of an intra-city transport service that would be technology-powered, called Danfo. [11][12]
