    Life means nothing in Nigeria even the unpaid divers tried to rescue him.
    Why can’t Lagos have all these equipment and stanby operators. What are they doing with taxpayers money.

      That is to show how myopic we are. We always expect white people to do things for us while we are only good in running our mouth. We have money! We are rich! We have oil. We don’t have special emergency truck or Fire fighters in all of our states yet we are happy and always blame witches and wizards

      If white peoples helped us to build those bridges, are they going to help us maintain them? Building a road for Black people means the road should last forever. Don’t we think we suppose to set some money aside to properly maintain them?

      . There some incidents that happen naturally but we never pay attention to them. In Lagos alone, some shipping containers not properly secured to the truck fall on people and kill dozens of people, yet we attribute it to unseen forces instead of taking proper measures to prevent future occurrence. In the history of Nigeria there has been no Government that had adopt strong measures to prevent such accident. The only regime who tried to try this is Buhari/Idiagon but subsequently overthrown. We really need to change our one way behavior and adopt a new method of solving our own problem ourselves.
