In this blog, I will be focussing on good news which shows that Nigeria is indeed moving forward but in the middle of scarcity, allow me to also point out some flaws as several wake up calls are still very necessary. Don’t you think?
However I will also be monitoring my own behavior!
- To use the trafficators, EVERY TIME
- To keep out of the BRT* lane, AT ALL TIME!
- To greet people before I ask them for what I want (I know. I can be very rude sometimes!)
- To stay calm in traffic
This last one will take me some time to master as Lagos life can drive anyone crazy. Plus, you don’t want to be perceived as a door matt especially when a danfo* driver stops right in front of you in the middle of the road!
But I don’t like the person Lagos fever has turned me into!
I should be able to retain the incredible energy that shakes this city but let go of the anger.
So, Dear visitor, have a very nice day and keep calm in Lagos!
What does it mean?
BRT line: a lane dedicated to buses operating under Lagos State Bus Rapid Transit scheme
danfo : used to describe an ugly bus, most of which are VW Combi buses or really old school buses that have gone through a lot – accidents, panel-beating, rusting, and more accidents. ( Definition retrieved from here : www.naijalingo.com)
