LAGOS TRANSPORT DRIVERS WILL ALWAYS FEED ON CRISIS...

Following the event that led to burning some Bus Rapid Transports in Lagos, the public transport owners completely took advantage of the situation and increased their fare..a very ridiculous one at that...a journey from Ojota to Yaba would cost you about 120 Naira but this time, it was 400 Naira...what is the reason..? the traffic congestion created by the crisis but such a rate is completely unnecessary and this is not the first time...For some people who could not afford that and face the traffic, home sweet home they returned..As for me, I had to dance along but journeyed through third mainland bridge to reach Yaba at 400 Naira.

And we actually do not have a say in this matter because we just have to get somewhere..our hope is always the grace to have the finances to live well in Lagos...the following factors increases a fare in Lagos- rainfall, bad road, traffic jam, uncontrollable crisis and hike in fuel price..Is this really something the government can solve?..I say No because the government does not pick me up in the morning neither do I have a welfare platform from the government..The public officers who live amongst us are usually driven or simply pretend they know nothing about the issues of transportation in Lagos.

A lot of Lagos residence are contributing so much to this state and It is very bad that the transporters can possibly take out a lot of money from you in a month...If you consider what some of us are earning amidst other utility bills...
