A Survival Tactic In Economic Recession

You’ll always know a novice by his/her thoughts and/or actions. Lol. As I waited at Osborne Foreshore Estate roundabout at Ikoyi area of Lagos, a jeep stopped by and asked where I was headed. I shook my head. Never mind I oreplied (I was confidently waiting for the person whom I’d ride home with). There…

Patience Always Pays.

I have told myself over and over that I will never be anxious to enter public transport again o but I keep doing it. Well I will learn. Have you entered a bus without negotiating the transport fare because you felt what the conductor requested for is ok only to find out that you were…

I Ain’t a JJC

I boarded a bike earlier today, we got to a place and the bike man began to slow down, I wondered why. Just then he took excuse from me(his passenger) that he needed to ‘do something’. I obliged him because he was polite enough to request for permission. He did not take as much time…

LASTMA Parole In Ikeja.

I had some wonderful moments with LASMA and Police officers earlier today. I Didn’t know law enforcement officials could be damn afraid of women (feeling fly. lol). I was behind schedule for a meeting which held at Surulere, fortunately a friend of mine offered to give me a ride since it was his route. We…

Lagos Mobile Courts: Next Level

Good News! I’m here to herald that Lagos State has inaugurated a mobile court. This is to ensure that on the spot judgment is given to traffic offenders in Lagos. Although date of commencement has not been verified, Please make sure you keep to the State’s traffic law from now as it will not be…

Eating The Humble Pie.

I think it’s safe to say we still have some sane drivers who understand that 100 naira cannot make or mar them. A passenger tried to bargain with a driver to pay a certain amount of money as fare. She had some baggage which was already loaded in the booth. Driver told her he would…

A BRT Tale

I had the opportunity of entering one of the new BRT buses earlier today. The ticket was generated from the POS. I think that’s kinda wise. Ok, I was trying to get me a good seat in the bus, when I heard ‘welcome to our midst’ from some set of people. I got curious ‘abi…

Citizen-To-Citizen Exploitation

I boarded a tricycle from my abode at Okeira axis in Ogba. It turned out to be a charter because I was the only passenger in it, save that I didn’t have to pay more than the usual fare(#50). The tricycle had a stop at one of the bus stop in order to get change…

What Eyes See In Lagos…

That moment nature calls and you have no choice but to respond asap else… As I rode in a friend’s car, we got to a part on the third mainland bridge and saw a ride parked close to the bridge. I was beginning to empathise with the owner thinking it broke down when his action…

Passengers And Their Wahala…

I didn’t know the way a public bus driver should drive must be different from that of a private car owner until now. Or how do you explain passengers’ expectation of drivers suddenly becoming fast and furious on Lagos roads when we all can see that there are no escape routes from traffic? Our bus…

Just Asking!!!

You might sometimes wonder why some drivers are so mean to passengers. We however often forget that one good turn deserves another and otherwise. Or so I reason. The bus I entered from Anthony got to Opebi roundabout and refused to start just when the traffic light turned green(we’ve been in the traffic, though light)….

When The Driver In Front Cares Not…

That moment it seems the traffic is bad but then you stare to see the fore is quite free. You begin to wonder what the cause of the artificial hold up is only to realise that the private car right in front of you actually slowed down to exchange pleasantries with an oncoming car. Aaarrgh!…
