If you have ever had an experience with Lagos drivers, trust me, It’s not an experience you’ll want to have again.
Sit back and enjoy our story for this week. You’re going to love every bit of it. Ensure you read to the end and drop your feedback.
It was the last Friday of the month, I came all the way from Edo State for an interview with Pullen Creatives, I was unfortunate to arrive in Lagos in the evening, after surviving the heavy traffic on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, if you know what that means….
Our driver suddenly said he was not going past Ojota, after we paid for Mile 2, that his fuel was about to finish due to the heavy traffic, after all the shouts we all came down, everyone went their separate ways.
I begged a passenger to direct me to where I could get a bus, las las I enter a bus from Ojota to Mile 2, this driver was forming sharp guy and was entering different streets, trying to beat traffic.
I was crying in my mind, who sent me to come to this state, “Lagos is not for me”. It was a totally new and terrifying experience for me.
Car horns blaring, sweats dripping, temperature rising, the different smell from different places, home training was out of the window, pockets of fights at every turns and junction, an army of Okada on one way, blocking the road and feeling entitled, adding salt to the frustration of stuck drivers and passengers.
Driver and passengers fighting
Some Passengers unleashed their frustration on the driver: Oga why you con pass here, dat other road for fast pass dis wan, we for don reach where we dey go now.
Driver: Na who you dey talk to, you know how many years I don dey drive?
Other passengers exchanged words
Lady: Oga abeg shift your leg, you dey use style dey touch my yansh
Man: you dey mad, I get your age for house, if you talk to me anyhow, you no go believe your eyes
Lady: dem no born you well, you no go ever try am again.
I looked outside the bus, and all I see are fights, looked inside the bus, everyone is arguing, I closed my eyes and kept saying ‘Lagos is not for me’
If only I knew I would have taken God is Good Motors, a company with well-behaved staff and more importantly, good drivers, and tight AC, they will calm your nerves till you reach your destination.
To cut the long story short, I got the job, and it’s been fun all the way working here at Pullen.
Thank you for creating magic with us.
