My Lagos My Nigeria – A Young Man’s First Experience of Lagos #AmProudlyNigerian

Ever wondered what makes Lagos special?
 Some would say that it is because countless opportunities abound in Lagos, others would argue that it’s because of the crazy traffic.
Speaking of traffic, ever driven over the famous 3rd mainland bridge on a Monday morning between the hours of 8 and 10? Then you know what traffic in Lagos means.
 Here’s a story from Jerome, a young man who relocated to Lagos from Issele-uku, Delta state, in search of a Job:
Sitting down in the danfo bus, sweating profusely, I began to wonder if this job interview was really worth the struggle. Between the incredible heat, the smell in the danfo and the noise – both inside and outside the bus – I would be lucky if I got to my interview in one piece. But I needed the job badly; so going back was not an option.
