My Horrible Experience With Heat Yesterday Night by chocolateme(f): 9:16am On Jan 18, 2019
Greetings to anyone reading this, please pardon my grammatical errors as I bare my heart in this write up. We live in a down floor flat in a three storeyed building and as you know how most compounds in Surulere is without space, ours is surrounded by other tall buildings so to get fresh air especially at night is zero possible.
The state Government has not been forthcoming with pipe borne water these days despite knowing how important water is to human life, the power supply company are making it harder too, you go to bed at night, you won't sleep well due excess heat, you won't see water to at least bath throughout the night to keep cool till morning.
This has been going on in our area in Surulere around Itire/Ishaga. Last night, I thought I was going to die oh God!! We have generator set but the engine is very faulty and very expensive to repair besides, we can't be spending money on fuel on daily basis coupled with the fact that there are other expenses at home to run.
Last night, I was awake till 3am dot, I kept fanning myself and sweating profusely, at a point, I felt I was loosing my breath, I stood up, laid down, sat down, I did everything I could to feel OK but to no avail, my hand was aching me too.
I slept off for about 12minutes only to suddenly jerk up from bed and feel sweat running down my face and body like a cup of water was poured on me hmm.. The mattress was soaked at different sections and I couldn't lie down on it again. The one that scared me most was that I observed that fluid came up into my mouth from my stomach and I rushed to go and spill it out, dehydration too, I kept drinking water and trying to stay alive.
By exactly 3am dot, they brought the light, I wasn't feeling happy because there was no morale for excitement anymore but I finally managed to sleep off, i woke up again as they took it by past 4 again till now. I sleep by 3 or 4 almost every night and I am feeling frustrated. I felt I should share it, I am tired, God please help me, I am always scared once the night approaches on daily basis.. The Government should help the masses with light and water for healthy living.

lol yours is just heat. Mine is heat and mosquitoes. I almost cried two nights ago. If we don’t have light at night, I always feel depressed. I had to spray my room around 2am when I couldn’t take it any more. The heat too was unbearable. I just tire for this country

Me too o
The heat was so much and when i start to doze off that is when mosquitoes will know they want to mate on your ear
Our country is still in 15th century when it comes to good things(good road,electricity,Agriculture even sport)
But we are in 21st century when it comes to bad things (drugs,prostitution,crime,)
Think about it

It's the time of the year, make sure you drink plenty of water. Also try and get rechargeable fans to reduce the heat.

Foolish Nigerians everywhere... Blaming their Gov't at every slightest opportunity like they aren't the ones that voted them in. Just see them all again adulating Buhari and Atiku all over the place. The gov't of a nation reflects the citizens!

FOOLS !!!

Isn't Necessity the mother of inventions?

Why can't we proffer a solution to our problem? Why can't we come up with an improvisation? Why can't we... ? Damn it, I'm pissed. I hate being a black man sef. angry angry angry

Problems here

1.Poor city planning.Somewhere along the line the plans for Surulere were thrown into the bin

2.Poor light....this one

I blame government for not doing stuff like taking loans to fix power, paying bills for government parastatals.
And I blame Nigerians. Many Nigerians don't pay their bills.
Plus...I am on a prepaid meter. I pay less than $5 for light...,meanwhile AN average Ghanaian pays more. Ghana has 24/7 light...Nigeria does not have light.

3.Poor water.
Again...government...how well do they plan.
Then how many people pay their water bills. Is what we are paying sufficient enough to make the water people supply us with water 24/7

Kai....Nigeria needs CHANGE...not APC or PDP change...CHANGE.

Come and sleep in my house. My Air conditioner stays on as long as I am at home. My back up generator is auto start though I hardly use it as most nights I have regular power all through.

I will ensure your chocolate skin tone will glow even more after a week of steady AC.

Don't worry I promise to be nice

I use to think that I was the only person experiencing the unsual heat... Infact I do feel there is something wrong with me for experiencing this type of heat I have never experienced before....

My own case there is light but I hate cold,... I easily get cold so I will rather sleep naked just to regulate my body temperature...
