I took a drive on Christmas day to some parts of Lagos to feel the pulse of the city. I started from Yaba through Maryland through Mobolaji Bank Anthony and Toyin street all the way through Allen Avenue to Adeniyi Jones.

Enjoy!!!

I don't know what democracy has done in this country since 1999

See as everywhere old

All the the great things this country has done were done in military era

No democratic government would have been able to construct the 3rd mainland bridge

Most of the federal universities that the military build were constructed by civil engineering companies. Now na bricklayers they build universities

It was the military that had the fore sight to move the capital to Abuja and funded it within a short period of time if it was in Democracy it will be vision 2090

Honestly since the military left Nigeria government have not undertaken any quality infrastructural project in this country

Even when they plan it . Corruption and sharing of money always make Dem deliver substandard
Projects

Corrupt bunch of leaders

Lagos fine.. but government needs to do something about all those dirt's and
shanties besides the road, proper road markings,cover drainage... Honestly Lagos would have look organized if it wasn't overpopulated and if those hausa fulani dirty animals weren't in the city.i see future in Lagos. Ikeja Yaba surulere are the ok places on the mainland

Your logic is upside down as of 1999 Nigeria was 39 years old and the military had ruled for 29 years
Third mainland bridge was built by Shagari up to Ebute Metta before he was overthrown
The reality is that the military were in charge of the oil boom money twice and they failed to fix power, failed to fix rail and failed to fix refineries

Funding Abuja was done mainly with the proceeds of funds from the windfall increase in price due to the GUlf war in 1991. It was not foresight. What economic benefit does Abuja provide considering the billions that were spent there?

Many would disagree that building Abuja was a good use of money. That money would have been better spent on power or rail infrastructure
When the Military came again in 1983 the Naira was exchanging for $1.50 in 1999 when they left it was exchanging for 1.25 cents
We had come to embrace a culture of fuel shortage and university strikes.
When the military left in 1999 they left a huge debt that could not be serviced comfortably and we were left begging for debt forgiveness
What about the Abacha loot that keeps resurrecting 20 years later??
Please do not give a distorted account of the impact of the military in Nigeria. It was generally a disaster which we have not yet recovered from
