So it took us 10 hours to travel from Lagos to Chad for the Africa School of Internet Governance. Here is is a short 5 minute summary of the 10-hour journey. We went from Lagos to Lome to Cameroon and then Chad. A direct flight should have been less than 3 hours.

Travelling within Africa can be stressful

What kind of journey is that? So you went westwards to Lome, back eastwards to Cameroon before going up to Chad. Are there no direct flights from Lagos to Cameroon?

Chad, a country that is at the northeastern boundary with Nigeria?

It would have been better if you had even gone by road.

First Fly westward from Nigeria over Benin to Togo, the fly eastward over same Benin and Nigeria to Cameroon, before flying northward to Chad.

That is what yoruba people do call “Iranu” ati “arara”

Forget about your merry-go-round journey.

Tell us about this --- So it took us 10 hours to travel from Lagos to Chad for the Africa School of Internet Governance.

And how is Chad? Is it as bad as we think it is? What of the people...etc.

Surprises me how some people talk anyhow to score cheap points undecided
If them charge you 800k per seat from lagos to N'djamena for direct flight you go fit pay?
Or do you need a soothsayer to tell you that passenger traffic between Lagos and Ndjamena is low that's why they had to stop at Lome,Douala then N'djamena so that the business side of the airline can stay positive?
Unnecessary wailings from a supposed entrepreuneur(someone who barely understands how a company breaks even ffs!)
Mtchew.
I am currently in Kinshasa and I don't think your wailing up there is half of what I saw,yet I don't make pointless videos discrediting businesses that goes beyond norms to make some services afordable for ingrates/underprevileges like you who can't decipher how businesses do what they do and why they do them or even pay up to access what they want.

Flying directly from Lagos to N'djemena will be madly expensive so it understandable.

You get it, and the available airline, had to take the longest route ever grin
