From Port Harcourt To Lagos And Back by oride: 3:09pm On Sep 27, 2018
Hello car Gurus, enthusiasts, techies, Kazeems, Demeanors and my buddy Dancok.

This section has not been as active as ot used to. So I decided to bring some of the old flavour back. I remembered Gazzuzz' trip from the East to Lagos driving his ever reliable '98 (now 2000) Toyota Avensis and decided to do likewise.

My trip starts tomorrow from the Garden city of Port Harcourt and end in the seat of West African civilisation, Lagos. I will hopefully be returning back the day after arrival.

I am quite familiar with the routes to take and avoid, however, your input is always welcome.

I plan to take pictures of the scenery, bad and good spots amongst others.

I only ask for your encouragement and views on this thread. Yabbing is allowed but no insults please.

What about heading to Onitsha and then lag from there. I always take that route when going to lag from phc. Maybe because am already used to taking that route

Following with keen interest. Pls drive safely & be careful with rogue Council Officials.

-Elele area - security issues

- Too many police and army checkpoints

- Niger bridge traffic

Those are my reasons why I prefer the Warri route.

Check the CVT fluid in that gearbox o. If you can, drain and refil. The engine in that car na die-hard. The auto, not so. Don't try owerri to Onitsha as mentioned by a poster below me. The section after the rivers state boundary into owerri is horrible. I fell into a pot gee pee tank hole before control round about that nearly swallowed my car whole.
Just follow warri route. Its better and faster.
