VIO officials… Worst distraction🕵

“White dey there”! That was the phrase that kept flying on the roads this morning.  VIO officials came to play. Lol Even tricycle drivers kept away from possible ‘VIO infested’ routes. Now my driver had tried all routes leading out of Ogba, and it seemed he wouldn’t succeed.  At the initial stage of this drama,…

What Is Bad Is Bad!

The attitude we citizens display on our roads leave much to be desired always! We are as lawless as our rulers! Scratch that! Our rulers are as lawless as we are! I boarded a tricycle as usual on my way home this evening. The driver got to a T-junction around Ogba, saw that there was…

Unkind Driver👎🏾

That moment a driver lives up to the name given to him. I got to the garage a passenger late early this morning. I dreaded sitting in the next bus because I felt it would take a while to get filled up. However, the only passenger I met in the bus at that time encouraged…

Genuine Kindness…👍🏼

You remember I once wrote about an old fart who thought he could with 50naira get a babe like me? Another similar scenario occurred some days back, howbeit with a twist.  I had entered a tricycle from my area in Ogba. I was the only lady in the tricycle. Situations like that make me look…

When Doing Good Pays👍🏼

I got fascinated with my driver’s story this evening, I couldn’t but share.  He picked up a passenger around Fagba on our way to Ogba. When the young man was about to alight from the tricycle, he reached for his pocket to pay his fare but was asked by the driver not to bother. The…

Bad breath… Mouth close🙏🏾

Hmmnn! There’s nothing as embarrassing as bad breath! It upsets faster than even fart! (Did I just compare these two? Eeeww!) I sat beside an elderly man at the front seat of a J5 bus (You know how those kind of buses make you feel as if you and the other passenger are too close…

Sunday blues🎺

That moment you feel exhausted and you dragged yourself into a tricycle but your ears could not but catch convos. This man and I waited patiently for the third passenger to arrive. I was beginning to get weary waiting  when a lady approached the tricycle. It happened that she knew the other passenger.  We were…

JJC👈🏽😎

There’s always that first time one rides in BRT buses, howbeit, one had better do well for oneself by asking those who know how it operates for directions so one is not named a nuisance.  There was this guy I met in the bus. Apparently, he was just taking the BRT bus plying Ikorodu road…

When a beggar becomes ‘Mario’…😏🙄

I have always had this principle of never getting to a point where I get stranded on the streets of Lagos. I resolved to this principle because of the embarrassment usually faced by the stranded(not me though). It can really get so messy at times, that those you didn’t even approach would turn your matter…

Can it be this bad?😳😭

How hard can it really get in Nigeria? Hmmn! I boarded one of the long buses from Ikorodu on my journey to Ojota some days ago (I was running behind schedule for my outing, so I decided against queuing for BRT bus). The bus got filled along the way and the conductor started to call…

Jobless Somebori👎🏾

FRSC officials are at it again!  The car I boarded from Ojota garage on my way to Ogba earlier today was stopped by one of FRSC officials. The cab driver obeyed and parked.  Here was me positioned on the front seat with my face all shades of disgust!!! The usual questions were asked the driver,…

A Psychopath or an Officer?😏😡

I’m still in bewilderment at the thought of the act that played out right in my presence some days ago!  On my way back from Sango Ota, I experienced man’s inhumanity to man. The driver of the bus I boarded wanted to drop off a passenger at a seemingly illegal bus stop when haven sighted…
