Narrate your trekking experience this morning

What a day .
Oshodi 500
Obalende 800

How much is my salary?
I went through hell this morning trying to get a bus to convey me to Eko Hotel from CMS. On a regular day, i take a bus for 100Naira or 150Naira but on getting to the bustop today, it was an eyesore and i eventually paid 500Naira to get to Eko Hotel. I honestly hope something is done soon to help the masses. A BRT Bus came and upon seeing the kind of crowd at the bustsop, he decided to help and asked us to come in. At the point of payment, the other oficials, said the ticket available was for 250Naira and people began to move backwards because we were already used to paying 100Naira.

He said he only had a ticket for Ajah and he was just going to follow Eko Hotel and drop us off. People couldn't pay and we watched an empty Bus leave the terminal.
Please help us provide BRT busses that will drop us off at Eko Hotel with a ticket we can afford..Help us please cause i'm not sure we can survive this.

Tankers have claimed so many lives in Lagos yet LASG hasn’t even bothered to enforce existing traffic laws that restrict their time of operation.

Trekked from doyin to bode thomas, got a shuttle bus for 150 instead of 50 naira. Sanwo has a plan of releasing his bus he should do fast students and workers are not finding it funny. Had to lap some students. Or better still he should appeal to employers incase their workers should get to their place of work late.

My question is, why was Keke napep imported to Nigeria and sold to Nigerians. Now what happens to those who borrowed money to purchase this tricycle? It was called an EMPOWERMENT program. Y is Sanwo DISPOWERING people now?

From Ekore or New Garage to Iyana Oworo?
Maybe one of us even saw you on the bridge o!

ylaa:
From Bariga to be precise.
Okay, that is a long trek o, but there are some shortcuts at the back tho, if you don't wanna take the major road.

Something will be done soon.

Somehow you people think that your justification for the bike ban extends to tricycles too. Try doing it without sounding like a brat in a bubble and let’s see if it makes sense.

At least the ban would have been done in batches of areas. Like street by street it will allow the people and transport systems to adjust to the shocks gradually. But now with this a lot of exploitation is going to take place

Prices are bring hiked for no reason at all. There’s no traffic because Lagos is scanty. I swear the government is sick but we as a people still exploit ourselves. Bleep you Sanwo-Olu and that’s on god.

You can rain curses all you want, they expect it. We all know how far the curses go. If we’re being serious, RunLagos should be obstructed on Saturday morning. Protest peacefully on Saturday. Let sponsors of the event be affected. Let pressmen carry the news and let foreigners see the mess that Lagos really is. Put Sanwoolu’s hypocrisy in his face, in front of all and sundry.

The main cause of traffic in Lagos is Danfo but your government thinks banning Okada and Napep that is saving lives is the solution. Someone who wakes up by 5am to beat traffic will have to start waking up by 3. Your government lacks human emotional intelligence

A son took his old father to a restaurant for an evening dinner. Father being very old and weak, while eating, dropped food on his shirt and trousers. Others diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm.
After he finished eating, his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly. When they came out, the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that. The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father.

At that time, an old man amongst the diners called out to the son and asked him, “Don’t you think you have left something behind?”.
The son replied, “No sir, I haven’t”.

The old man retorted, “Yes, you have! You left a lesson for every son and hope for every father“.

LESSON: Do not neglect your parents because they do things old people do. The young shall grow, the grown ups would get old one day.

People paid school fees less than a month ago and were given 4 days notice about a ban that would affect their daily commute. ChrisBamidele says he’d rather keep his kids at home or change their school.

There’s a new low per tweet. It’s unbelievable

i usually don't drive my car on mondays due to lagos traffic.

i took a bus to obalende this morning and was forced to trek from obalende to VI.

To be honest i enjoyed the 35 minutes trekking.

As for me, i prefer the bikes and keke do not come back.

Lets trek as we use to do and improve our health.

its trekking for me every monday morning.


Modified
For those of you raining insult on me. I only shared my personal experience this morning o!
I am not Lagos state government and I do not justify the ban for the general public.
Please learn to read and comprehend.
I am not responsible for anyone's misfortune in life.

People are fucking walking!!!! Bus fares are hiked. Cabs cost over twice the former price. There is still major traffic. People are not safe. People are losing even more sleep. Not like you fucking care. It’s just a little discomfort to you.
As long as your cars are not scratched, you don’t care

Let me analysis the far reaching effect of the #OkadaBan and Keke to Nigerians.

1. Increase in Crime Rate.
2. Increase in cost of living
3. Loss of lives during an emergency.
4. Low sale of Fuel for Filling Stations.
5. No more sale Vulcanizers
6. Increase in Lateness to work
