In 2018, I remember making as much as 10k or more per week as a student working under Gokada.
This guy made bike rides free for months, free cinema hangouts etc
He made transportation easy for the students.
Rest In Peace Fahim Saleh.
You wrote your name on the sands of time.

This last video from Fahim Saleh, CEO of Gokada – Passionate entrepreneur. A young man living the life & full of promise. Who could he have engaged that is so evil to cut him to pieces?
“We have a torso, a head that’s been removed, arms, & legs”. Tragic

Rest in peace Fahim Saleh.
I’m writing this from a place of pain and loss. You were such an inspiration to me and my team.
Just last week Uzo and I were on a call with Fahim listening to an offer to absorb us into Gokada and a possible buy out. pic.twitter.com/z2nT8Wfnzi

I woke up to the disturbing news of Fahim Saleh’s gruesome murder in NYC (CEO, Gokada) & the unfortunate death of Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile (first ever female combat helicopter pilot in Nigeria) to a road traffic accident at NAF Base Kaduna.
May their souls Rest In Peace. pic.twitter.com/aWJMl9BEJW

This is the remains of Fahim Saleh. I can’t stop thinking about the fact that he was just 33years old. My exact age mate. And just a few weeks ago, tweeted about feeling positive for 2020. We are all body bags moving around. No one knows who is next.
