Some days are Not like this in Lagos, everyday is... Beautiful city with no love amongst drivers in the traffic... Sometimes hard work doesn't bring riches.. alot of hard working people in this town are working to survive, not even to accumulate riches.. This fast city can bring u quick wealth and also reduce ur life span with no doubt...As early as 4:00am people already going to work.. as late as 11,12pm people are still going home, other people stuck in traffic congestion.
Development lead to urbanization which caused Over population in this city which brought about high purchasing power, traffic congestion and urban sprawl.. Why does every Nigerian wants to be in Lagos?
We want greener pastures, especially the Igbos.
But then the ridiculous thing amongst this very tribe(Igbos) is they keep the cycle of eastern - western migration running.
It's good to find greener pastures but it is horrible to let the next generations leave the eastern region like most of us did looking for greener pastures, we should end that cycle by developing the eastern regions communally or independently.
How long are we going to wait for government officials whose main objective is to fill their pockets to develop the nation? Smh.. it is a shame if the next generations suffer the same fate as we did... We know the problem but we re adamant to solve it.
If u want to make enough money before you contribute to develop eastern Nigeria then keep deceiving yourself bcos no money is enough money.. The rich Igbos should use their private money to help eastern Nigeria.
The middle class should use little money, working experience, transfer of knowledge, educating the people and any form of contribution... The low income earners should use man power to build and ensure their is enough food in the land.
All I am saying is if we keep running away from the east to the West and north looking for greener pastures, we live no legacy, no heritage and no future for the next generations.. leaving them no choice but to keeping piling up in millions in lagos, Kano and abuja. let's use what we have to develop our land.. be it money, knowledge or man power. #Nigeria #Lagos #Igbo #hausa
