The African Press Organization (APO) has been selected by Uber Sub-Saharan Africa as the exclusive provider for the distribution of news releases in Africa. 

The APO is the lone press release news wire in Africa and the worldwide leader in media relations involving Africa.

Uber is a service that provides drivers to those who need rides through a smartphone application. With the push of a button, the Uber app helps people find a ride without having to wait on the street while trying to hail a cab or in unfamiliar neighborhoods while waiting for the bus. The service is convenient and a great way to find a safe, reliable ride that is also affordable. The app gives information about the driver when one calls for a ride, uses GPS technology to identify a location for easy pickup, and provides an easy way to pay without the need of carrying cash or a credit/debit card.

APO Africa Wire, a newswire service in Africa that distributes and monitors press releases for the country, will dispense Uber’s press releases. The service can potentially reach more than 600 million and spans the largest network in Africa.
