Why you should care about the Nigeria Startup Bill with Oswald Osaretin Guobadia, SSA to the Nigerian President and Timi Olagunju, Tech Lawyer and Policy Analyst

In 2020, ride-hailing startups in Lagos, Nigeria, were dealt a huge blow – the Lagos State government had placed a ban on all motorcycles in the state. Consequently, these startups saw operations halted, and a few pivoted to other sectors to stay afloat. Interestingly, only a few days before the announcement, some members of the ride-hailing sector were seen with government officials. The relationship between Nigerian startups and regulators has been bumpy, with startups constantly being thrown regulatory curveballs. With this in mind, a bill – the Nigerian Startup Bill – was created to create an enabling environment for startups. On today's podcast, we had Oswald Osaretin Guobadia, Senior Special Assistant to the Nigerian President and Timi Olagunju, tech lawyer and policy analyst, join our reporters to discuss the bill and what it portends for Nigerian startups.
