5 WAYS LAGOSIANS ARE SURVIVING FUEL SCARCITY

by - December 27, 2017

It stopped being news a while ago, that yet again Nigeria has fallen into another fuel scarcity frenzy, but what makes it so overwhelming is that it came during CHRISTMAS season!
I am pretty sure you are quite familiar with the perks that come with fuel scarcity, from price hike in transport fair to the extensive traffic jam in major cities like Lagos.  The moment I knew this season was going to be a special one was when I had to pay 2,500 for transport to Lagos from osogbo as against the usual 1,800 and on arriving to the park I took a bus from ojota to Ikeja 300 naira.
 So after I got home I laid a couple of ground rules for myself to make sure I still get the best out of my holiday.

1.       STAYING IN ONE PLACE

It is that simple!  I know there are those of you like myself that  find it really difficult to stay in one place, do not wait till hours at one spot in Lagos traffic humble you like it did for me.


2.         BLOCKING FRIENDS THAT KEEP INVITING US FOR STUFF

Although if I am being transported then I will totally accept the invite, but as for those that failed to factor my transport for whatever outing I uninvited myself simply because I cannot come and go and kill myself.


3.       ATTENDING CONCERTS ONLY ON SNAPCHAT

So last month I planned to hit at least 3 concerts this Christmas as an OG *winks and although I ended up attending none, I haven't missed much. Thanks to my on point snapchatters I can write a comprehensive essay on most concerts that happened in Lagos these past weeks.

4.       TURNING OFF “OUR” IGNITION

This is for you that drive, because don’t drive YET doesn’t mean I won’t look out for you.  I have a couple of male friends that have babes  they  used the “you’ll always have free ride” line for  and from time to time have to follow through with the good work,  I have seen a couple turn off their ignition in traffic because it saves fuel.

5.       TRYING NOT TO INDULGE

As much as I wanted to turn up and have a great ass time this holiday, I had to remember Nigeria is pretty fuvked up at the moment so I decided to cut back a little. Hence my anthem for the rest of the year and 2018 which is to just do me and prosper.

That being said, Hope you had a lovely Christmas? Mine was pretty lit.
Don't forget to comment.

 Enjoy the rest of your holidays’ and I’ll see you in 2018.
