Watching this from North America, all i can say is Nigger Area is finished and damaged good. I drove on all these roads and to think that the maintenance culture is extinct in that shithole is just so disgusting. Location 9 has to fall or else there will be no progress Hausa have abandoned Nigerian because Yoruba have sold their soul to greed by hobnobbing these illiterates who have taken over all the infrastructure and maintaining Nothing But LOOTINGLike this! 3Dislike this! 5Reply

Lagosians have very poor or nonexistent sanitation culture. In fact most Lagos residents are dirty. That is the reason for the flooding, not bad roads.. I saw flooding right under a bridge with canal. How do you explain that?Like this! 2Dislike this! 0Reply

This is in regard to “fear God and have common sense” by Oshiomole — That Nigeria eh? People scream God in vain at any turn. Same way people pray every minute, fasting and speaking in stupid tongues, but doing non of the 10 commandments nor any moral deed. Many spend time more on religiosity but without requisite good deeds. Imagine this Oshiomole somebody who has been so heartless in his dealings with Obaseki, now screaming fear of God just because someone thought to given him just a small taste of his own merecine. Religion is the bigger issue Nigeria has as the big problem, people are docile, retarded and unthinking because of inclination to religion. The thieving Pastors then seize this notion to milk the religious heads to become trillionaires. I’m done!Like this! 0Dislike this! 0Reply

Lag residents! Its that time of the year again. One would naturally think that this can only happen on the Island but Sadly, scenes like this are also common on the Mainland. There must be an equally shared collective and collaborative responsibility between the public and laggovt to tackle this issue, so that it doesn’t get worse than this.Like this! 0Dislike this! 0Reply

Lagos is water logged and in the next 10 to 15 years it will be taken over by the ocean like any other coastal city in the world. There is global warming people. Most or all of Lekki will be under water in 15 years. All those man made islands around lagos and the huge refinery is just a waste of money 20yrs max they will be floating. Move to higher ground.Like this! 1Dislike this! 0Reply
