Even if all these are done

It will never get better because Lagos Population would also skyrocket

The best solution it to develop other state
[/quote
I agree with u but developing other states takes determination and commitment from those states so till that happens let Lagos stakeholders work to make Lagos better.

On a serious note, a colleague once said;

The distance between point A and B (in Lagos) is traffic. grin

Picture is real from Zimbabwe football. Believe it or not, the kicker is also a woman. She is kicking the referee because of what she considers a bad call.

I disagree bro! not all of them are bad folks that may hide gun under their Okada and results to stealing at night...if they have total freedom to do their okada transporting they are ready to work and earn enough from that without resulting to night Stealing. what of the GO RIDE, GO MAX, GO KADA COMPANY what is the motive behinde that?

iF OKADA can have there own road or way.lagos will move fast. or we should rather have a working rail systems that can accomodate us all and Lagos can learn from Dubai.

I leave home 10am and make sure I'm on my way back before 4pm. I understand how Lagos works.
Since I run my business as an industrial person, I can't be following employees drag the road mornings and evenings.

Lagos should be granted a special status by the federal government.. It's long overdue and its obvious thousands of people are trooping in from different parts of the country on a daily basis. We may have a catastrophe in our hands in the next 10 yrs if nothing is done to effectively ease transportation.
Re: Lagos Traffic- Life Inside The World's Worst Traffic Jam by CoolVoice(m): 12:22pm On Aug 03
LMAO.. So Lagos traffic is the worst in the world? You must be joking.. all this oyinbo sha want to use Africa to sell market.. because they know the citizen sef don't know their worth.. they easily accept bad report and in many cases find it hard to believe the good report.. because they can't see the good in themselves. Every country have it peculiar problems all they do is called Packaging (Branding in the name of "Patriotism" ).. So that the rest of the world's can think they have it good.

How about the traffic in India?

I think if something is going to help at Large one should Maximise the good in it to broad day light.

It depends on what we use modern day technology to achieve

Okada helping people to beat traffic and get to thier various destinations is not bad but that when its use for such intention.

Phones,Internet of things ,Laptops,CCTV,Power Bikes,Super Cars,Private Jets,Passenger Planes,Naira,Dollar,Pounds Etc are all vices to give us better lives only when properly used....
But it can become World War III if used wrongly.

What of the GOKADA,OPAY RIDER,GO MAX OKADA moving freely without been impounded.


Brother robery can exist even if there is no Okada..... so let the Okada do their hussling pemding when We have better structued transport in Lagos.

Remenber Badagry road, Apapa gridlock! Yet no solutions yet!

Life is short.

Lagos does not have up to 5 million vehicles. So the ratio of car owners to the people is 5:8? What about the leggedes people? Or the buses taking at least 14 persons? Lagos does not have even up to 1 million vehicles.

So long as the Onne, Warri, Calabar and other sea and river Ports are not fully functional, Murtala Mohammed international Airport remains the primary hub for airlines coming into Nigeria, the railway isn't fully functional, this overcrowding and traffic congestion issue will remain perpetual.

Lagos has been structured to retain almost all the economic headquarters in the country and this is one of the consequences, others include;

Perpetual Pollution issues
High Accommodation costs
Man made disasters etc

Why won't they old quickly


Nothing destroys the human body more than stress. In fact stress opens the body up to killer diseases.
Someone will not rest well
Always busy
Untop of that they don't even eat healthy
Which is double wahala


Peace of mind is very good
You will even enjoy life more
Get the fun and sweetness out of life
Time to work, one works extremely hard
Time to rest and relax. You do that very well
That's the balance life should be about
