I had similar experience when I travelled to Makurdi some years back, saw a beautiful hotel around their modern market (name forgotten). Nice building, good furniture to name few, checked in without asking much questions. Left the hotel in the evening to go on sight seeing, then resumed back late around 10pm.

Man, no light, no reception in sight to vent my anger on, I just walked into my microwaved room dejected with my fone torch. Entered the bathroom to shower to atleast reduce my body temperature, alas no water shocked shocked, my legs nearly failed me coupled with alcoholic content in my system.

I was still in the bathroom thinking of what next to do when mosquitoes tune jeered me back into reality. Wore my clothes, carried my bag, went downstairs, told the 2 gatemen to open the gate for me, they refused shocked shocked, at this point, I was scared if i was not in ritualist den... It was already past 11, one of the security men nw said, Oga no vex, just manage till tomorrow, but we no go open this gate for you because it's late already and this area no dey safe!

Went back into the room, locked the door with all the available locks, pushed the chair to the back of the door, then waiting till when someone would come knocking, I didn't sleep all through that night with mosquitoes and heat having a field night and the fear of the unknown locked in my mind all night!

Bwahahahahaha grin grin grin grin grin

You need a small inverter with 1 solar panel. It will save you from this near death experience. Contact me if you're interested.
quote author=chocolateme post=74875779]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.[/quote]

It's the time of the year, make sure you drink plenty of water. Also try and get rechargeable fans to reduce the heat.
Even the air the fan is blowing will be hot.

With laptop and internet, you can't work in an oip company, with laptop and internet, you can't be at the pinnacle of Naijas entertainment nationally.

Lagos has and will still have several benefits. Thats why i said 'its great for advancement in one's career'

Make no mistake, the people you'll meet in Lagos will motivate you, the minds you'll rub with in Lagos will further your knowledge. It's one of the advantages of a place so diverse

Only 20% of lagosians are enjoying Lagos, others are miserable. Opportunity only meets 5% of the miserable 80% percent. Life is too short to live in a slum and wait for opportunity. Life is too short to drive 3hrs from main land to VI. Someone will fly in from Abuja do his stuff and fly out while you are still on road to or back from work. The Era of work Don pass and I tell you, depending on condition of Nigeria, people may soon start leaving Lagos very soon. Fresh air is precious, oxygen is precious but Lagos is lacking in nature and life span is short. If govt stabilizes, people will leave the way they came.

Get a Sonoko from Jumia instead bro.

You can even connect a car battery to it.

Thank me later. cool


Yahoogirl:
Get a rechargeable fan. It will do you a lot of good. It's usually effective when new. Just prepare your mind to buy a new one after one year, but at least it would have served the purpose.

I've had this type of experience before. Mine was made worse by mosquitoes. I had to sleep in my car with the AC on till day break. Naija no easy at all. I have a friend who wants to relocate abroad solely cos of mosquitoes.

You can replace the batteries instead.

Nobody who wants to remain sane should live in Lagos.
Same thing I told myself about 4years ago,... I'll never live in Lagos... Until an unfortunate circumstance brought me here

This place is whack
I used to say "people in Lagos need psychiatric evaluation" ... I've been here for 2years and 5months , I'm yet to go for a psychiatric evaluation!

Buy a rechargeable fan. Ours used to last 7 hours before it developed issues. We are planning to replace it soon
You don't need to buy a new fan just replace the battery check some online stores for the battery.

The battery is the only thing that was OK. Everything else about the fan from the stand to the switch got spoilt

Why are Nigerians never forward thinking? This is an African problem because the average white man normally thinks up ways to better his condition. After visiting Obudu, I won’t mind moving there and creating a mini hydropower dam. There are many waterfalls in the location which I can use to actualize the dream. From there I’ll freelance online until I make enough money to buy land there.
