Okay... I created a thread https://www.nairaland.com/3073782/finding-stolen-phone-share-detective on how to track a lost phone incase it gets stolen. Reason being that I was expecting my own phone.

Well, pending when i get mine, i decided to "flex" my friend`s own to be sure of what I was expecting.

While at it, I saw old pictures of Lagos (some before independence) So I decided to share. Follow me as I take you back memory lane.

This was before Niger Delta Oil money rolled in, in few years Abuja people would also forget their city was built by our oil.

What about the mainland? By the way, those bicycles were on the pedestrian sidewalks. That's wrong.

Nice one. Bringing back the memories of old good days. Days when everyone works for the progress of Nigeria. Day when greed and impunity were far away to be mentioned. Days of sanity and respect. God light our (Nigeria) shine again!

So many south east asian cities were at the same developmental level with Lagos in the sixties - Bangkok, Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur etc. They are all better than Lagos today in all ramifications.
