My Horrible Experience At Murtala Mohammed Airport::::::(see pictures):::::::::: by magicminister: 12:58am On Jan 07, 2016
All the buses that are meant to shuttle passengers from the parking lots to the murtala mohammed international airport are no longer working due to lack of maintenace. May i remind you that there were all bought brand new some years back
Passengers have to trek miles in order to move from parking lot to air-port and vice versa.
I was unfortunate enough to have been at the airport yesterday and i ended up with severe back pain due to the trekking and load i tagged along.

Secondly, the car park toll gate was malfunctioning and the security men took maximum advantage. instead of paying at the cashier's desk, the security men would accept a token from vehicles and let them pass.

Please, how low can we go in this country?

you can clearly see the parked buses that are supposed to shuttle commuters to and from the airport to the car park.

most people ended up trekking all the way to the airport with their heavy luggages as shown in the picture above.

Lest i forget, one of the Nahco Aviance staffs accosted me for taking pictures.... lol!!...

amen oh.
I mean, nobody is asking for a miracle but its sickening to see us fail the very basic tasks.
I am sure the maintenance budget for those buses and the toll gate have been duly disbursed but someone is sitting on it.

That airport is a disgrace. What of the fact that you have to dish our 500 naira to use a trolley. Something that is free everywhere else in the world. This country should be sold to China and the money shared for everyone. Useless country.

Murtala mohammed has always been an eyesore but under Jonathan, that eyesore became something else . You need to see the immigration desk in arrival to experience the Jonathan's transformation.
In spite of the so called 1 billion dollars worth of transformation.
The place stanks,
Ceiling without ceiling tiles exposing the moldy concrete beams above.

1Leaking roof.
2 Hot and damp.
3 Panty like buckets, the leg of a broken chair all over the place.
4 Broken furniture stacked in a corner and within sight of visitors.
That Hall could have been mostly rectified with less than a million naira.

Trolley is not free in the USA when departing unless you hijack an unused one in the parking lot. I know that it's free in arrival in Houston but not free in both arrival and departure in LAX

Let's be reasonable.

You can run away from Nigeria but Nigeria can never run away from you cos Nigeria runs in your blood its in your skin,its in every facet of your life.
When i see some youths saying they want to run away from NG i just shake my head. If Lee Kuan Yew ran away from singapore will singapore get to where it is today.
If Nelson Mandela ran away from SA will SA get to where it is today.NO!! they wont but because this men had the love of their country at heart they chose to stay and revive their fatherland.
You never know that of NG might be me,it might be you or anyone else. As for me no matter how bad NG can be i will stay and do my best.

Troley is free & in excess @ hamad international airport in doha,,,moreover,all the troleys in hamad are bought by non-government & private organizations coz their names are written on them,but they all in excess & free to use....
what are MTN & co. doing tht they cant take responsibility of little things like tht to help publicize their brand & also help ease travellers burden.
As for MMA it is the govt responsibility to take care of tht or they should privatisize MMA so thttravellers can enjoy same thing they enjoyed from where they are cuming

That's not true! In many airports in the USA, including JFK, New York, you pay up to $6 to use a trolley.

And it is not N500 paid for trolleys at MMIA Lagos.

Make we dey talk true.

I am sure someone must have budgeted to buy new sets of buses, that is the way we are no maintenance culture yet we have a sitting minister. The social media change agents would never comment here that is not what they are paid to do but we on our part will always bring out the ills of our society to the consciousness of our leaders that's what we owe the country not to praise worship anybody be you who.
