Omg! I Couldnt Believe My Eyez: Nigeria Is A Joke! by noblegas2(m): 11:29am On Mar 02, 2010
Yo!, Whats poppin ya`ll Nairalanders?, I came into Nigeria a few weeks ago through the Murtala Muhammed Airport and it was one hell of an Airport, First off, there was heat that looked like i just gotten into an oven & and it took like 50 minutes before my luggage came out from the belt.Bowt last week, I had to travel to Abuja to see one of my Cousins and i flew from the Local Airport(MMA2), Damn! i couldnt just belive that i was still in Naija, everything was in place, the A.C was in a a perfect working condition and all other things were absolutely intact, Am just wondering why our Local airport should be better than our International Airport, wats ur opinion on that?

It was kept like that so that the intl communities
and donors wont hesitate to give us development grants and loans
to upgrade our infrastratures when we go begging.
With the intl airport experience,oyibo wont hesitate. grin grin grin

Yeeah bro,

Wellcome home. LOL

Anyways, it not that the local airport is better but i thing
it is because dey r just constructing the place and i tell you
in some years time it might be worse.

A staff of Aero told me last Monday dat d governing council
said it was d Generator dey inherited from Idiagbon or so
that they are still using till now and it cant carry much load
again, which made them not to on d AC

Well, thats bad of them and even a white man came to my boss
and asked him: Are you a nigerian? My boss said yes and d man said
" u people are unfortunate". I was just laughing,

lol @ this post.
but now that i think about it, you're right.
the MMA International Airport was okay but it was really muggy and clamy inside.
the local airport was pretty cool actually.
i remember waiting for the flight to Owerri and i only wore a tank top and i was freezing my butt off in the lounge!!! the AC was on too high. embarassed
but for the most part, it was pretty decent.
i see what you mean, true.
