Baba God pick up, pick up!

On my way out this evening, I saw two bashed cars. Apparently, there had been an accident. It was a cute ride (couldn’t pick out the name and model) and an old Nissan. From the look of things, the Nissan was at fault. Trust Lagos drivers, he started “if you know say you carry fine…

Playing the cards right♠️

I had the privilege of getting a tricycle as soon as I got out of my house (I didn’t have to get to the bus stop. The only snag here is you are at the mercy of the driver’s quest for passenger as he continues to wait for others to practically come out of their…

My Law Abiding Dad!

That’s how my father, having spent so many years in the States came home some weeks ago. Having encountered Lagos life he became weary of the characters and behaviours on the streets. Hahaha. So it was on this very day at the MM2 airport road, wanting to make a crossing from one side of the…

Not a good one!

Remember my write up about the new BRT, it’s innovations and how I love to ride in them? I couldn’t wait for one of them today so I boarded one of the old ones. Having entered, I noticed it also had a ‘tv screen’ showing a comedy programme. Hmmm! The irony was we couldn’t enjoy…

See me see people o…

It’s quite interesting how people who are supposed to be your ‘Facebook friends’ tend to give you cold shoulders when you meet or bump into one another physically. Questions then pops up in my mind; Is it that they don’t recognize you (in broad day light), or they are too shy to approach you, or…? This…

Striking a balance!

That moment you realise your safety during a journey is not solely or necessarily dependent on the driver. I boarded a bus earlier and happened to witness the driver unwrap a paper (I sat in the front seat, I had ample view). I was curious but waited patiently to see what was in it. It…

When fart becomes a recipe…

I read a post some minutes ago people. Guess what? It said new research has it that passing out gas(farting) now helps the other person get rid of some health issues! Shoo! I almost passed out with laughter. Ha! If truly this works, then we (Lagosians) are in deep mess… I don’t want to even…

No smooth ride, No pay!

Will Lagos drivers ever change? Barely had we moved from Agric bus stop in Ikorodu, that we had a flat tyre. Our bus driver tried to continue with the journey, while passengers implored him to stop us at the nearest bus stop, so we could catch another vacant bus. Just because he wanted his conductors…

Standing!

Age long tradition in Lagos. Will it ever cease in our transport life? Will it?  A number of reasons have been attributed to this- People are either always in a hurry to get to their destination, thus cannot wait for the next turn; there are not enough vehicles on our roads, or people are looking…

BRT Alert!!!

Boarding the new BRT buses as a means of transportation en route Ikorodu is fast becoming a hobby for me. The comfort and tranquil I enjoy is unparalleled. Passengers now have that feel of relaxation even in traffic. Some sleep away without fear; you get to enjoy fresh and cool atmosphere (the ACs still work)…

Two for N150

See me see drivers o. That’s how they want to turn tfare to 2 for 150 naira when it’s not biscuit. Or how do I relate with the fact that every time I pay fare for two people from Ogba bus stop to Akilo area, drivers end up withholding my 10 naira change under the…

Two fighting…!

It’s appalling what the police have become in Lagos. The citizenry now have little regard for them. I have seen people give officers the ‘you disgust me’ and the ‘who are you’ look before now, especially the lower cadet who roam our roads. However, this imbroglio I experienced between a policeman and an ‘Agbero’ (area…
