yet, my village road is better than most inner roads in Lagos. What is happening Lagosians? Yet its debt is higher 26 poor northern states not our oil rich south south states. True, But then, where is the difference in quality of life or quality of infrastructure? For Bourdillion Sincara...☺😂🤣 Open seaports in the South-South and allow them to function well...Lagos will be history.
And we know where chunk of the money goes 🤔🤔 .... And half of that money went to Bola Ahmed Tinubu. That's why he is among the richest men in the world But they never have money for palliative. They're busy flexing. Yes my handsome governor eko oni bake sir Yet, no monorail or efficient transport system
And so fucking what mr governor, enjoying federal government advantage and chestbeating. It's Lagos n not 26 other states, it generate revenue 24/7 That's why they don't want to lift the lockdown For the speaker to blow abi?.... Yet Lagos Has NOTHING to show for it Lagos State is richer than SOME countries in Africa.
26 states in one. Lagos I hail thy🙌🙌🙌🙌 And what have they used it for? Rather, the Godfather of Lagos politics, if not the whole south west, and his family are enriching themselves with it. Where is the blue rail lines, red rail lines? Where are the roads? Have they developed the tourism infrastructures in the state?
Than 26 countries combined. They are commending the Governor for building isolation centres despite all the money obasa dey give hin GF. This is not good. Something urgent needs to be done. Where's the presidential economic team? yes ! but the money goes to one purse..later shared to his loyalists...thank you.
After this covid kanostate would be richer Nothing to show for it, but we can see the impact on a particular household in Lagos and Lagos NURTW. Open up other seaports in other states and let's see if you will come back to say this . And yet could not pay it workers minimum wage and May,2020 salary. I bet u didn't expect to see this in the media.
Just 26? The data is wrong. About 30 states just exist: waiting for monthly allocation to pay civil servants and embezzle d rest There's a story in 1995 that ate up Abacha. He was so angry that some LGS in Lagos made more money than many northern states. with nothing to show for it. This is a positive development. Why not encourage other state governments to a cue from followlasg. One influencer is busy with his negative energy over this just to please his paymasters.
Yet, no good roads. That's even d one they annouce o Learn from Ben Ayade. Stop sucking the blood of poor Lagosians. And can show absolutely nothing for it They can actually make much more But a glorified city with traffic and tasking the suffering masses. There is nothing stopping Lagos for not having a mono rail ..but then
And most of the money is embezzled. The most corrupt and opaque state in Nigeria. Zero transparency and accountability. And yet almost all the inner roads are this bad nawaoo You people should stop saying lagos make money that other states when the government deliberately distroy others state economy and move it to lagos. They should practice true federalism if lagos economy we not drop.
If other ports are open Lagos GDP will come down.. This Lagos monopoly of the economy will not do Nigeria any good it's time to spread the economy to other states. We know And the state is like Kogi with excess money. Lagos still have long way to go, we would like it to be compared to Las Vegas or Dubai. Thank you.
But nothing much to show for the much money they make. That's why you have the best living conditions of all states too. Compare the development in those 26 states too. That is the shortsightedness of the federal government. It's sad really..that is why the state is overcrowded...ports authority need to expand their ports.....
tijanihabeeb Bad roads everywhere. Smh Money that you use lasma and police and others to steal from citizens abi Of course Yet Lagos roads are worse than 26 states combined All the money is in Bourdilon. One Lagos, many slaves ,one pocket. What do you expect when every other seaport around this country was shutdown out of wickedness
Segunr70 Yet useless northern govts dèy drag with lagos for owo covid 19 That’s why It’s called center of excellence By using ViO , FRSC, LASTMA to extort us anyhow A state where you have to pay to go to a beach and pay huge for useless houses.. overrated! Why can't the government invest in more states and make it commercial like Lagos.
But corruption has kept at crawling stage when compared with some capital cities in Africa such as Cairo, Algiers , Pretoria etc. What a shame ! I boarded a bus today to Yaba, paid N400, sitting in twos, total of 7 passengers. Driver paid 1k to d agbero. As we journeyed on, another set of agbero blocked him, he paid N200, within 2 mins; another set requested for N100, he didn’t pay, they removed a wiper. Pure Extortion 💔
Aside huge traffic and seaports what's so special about Lagos State.? What have they, to show for it? That's why it's called Lagos. And they have the baddest and worst roads Just saying We all know this I’m sure but what exactly are we benefiting from it ? The corruption going on in Lagos state is more then all states combined. Set awon Tinubu 💔
Horrible roads, mad traffic and fat politcians to show for it. Federal might made it possible. Remember the real Lagosians ain’t the creators of wealth there rather people from other states whose businesses will thrive more owing to proximity to their business channels. Give other states airport, seaports and watch Lagos on free fall.
And debts more than 26 states combined For the highest production of Covid 19 And with that no steal dem Dey steal the money....they are stealing and yet they are threaten citizen with police I voted for Buhari out of anger in 2015 at Jonathan and his ineptitude. The world gave us the SS Gej thinking he will help uplift us . This man simply went there and be smiling and trying to please everyone. We lost 6 Goddamn years. Chai. GEJ. Mychwwwwww.
Ironically the developments in d combined states is greater than Lagos. Something is not right somewhere Let the federal government open seaports at other states like warri, rivers and Calabar and international airports to most states and give it 5years let's see how rich Lagos would be than other states.
And probably spends more also in equal proportion. To whom much is given, much is required. Na them sabi sote 26 northern state. No surprises. I mean, THIS IS LAGOS!!!! Very true! ...two bullion vans at Bourdillon can testify. Poor Lagosians!

This is the problem we have in Nigeria and it shouldn't be so. All resources are concentrated in one center. Half of Lagos is predicted to be submerged in 50 years time and we're doing nothing to curb the impacts or prevent it at all. A guy once told me Lagos is abroad 🤣🤣 probably he is right. It’s an old fact...to what use is the money put to benefit Lagosias....all we hear is Obasa 50million, Obasa 100 million
And 60% go to bourdilon lord Yes you are right But few people steal the whole money what’s the essence of telling us ? Thieves everywhere I still don't get why d north & fg don't want to open d economy of d SS by authorizing a functioning port well I know it can't be forever one day God will give us port that's one of d reason I hate gej he's as worse as buhari by not authorizing a functioning port in his 6yrs in
Lagos a country of its own it's high time they start allocating those money to all state of the federation, just like the oil money. Let's Folow each other. I follow back immediately Lagos on his own a country More than half of the states are in the north. Amechi was right, non of the governors are there to serve or develop their states. It's how much they can loot.
