How’s President Buhari’s visit to Lagos affecting You?



How's President Buhari's visit to Lagos affecting You? - BellaNaijaWe’re all aware President Muhammadu Buhari is on Thursday visiting Lagos, where he’ll be for 2 days.

The president will commission the Ikeja Bus Terminal on his visit, and will inspect the Eko Atlantic City Project and flag off the construction of the Lekki Deep Sea Port.

To host the president, the Lagos State Government announced a work free day in the state.

The state government also blocked roads in areas the president is expected to drive through.

Of course, this will have its effect on a state already plagued with insane traffic.

As usual, Nigerians have taken to their social media account to lament their anger, expressing just how much the president’s visit has affected them.

    I am livid at the level of injustice metted out to Citizens in this country. So I went to my local market this morning and I met market women standing around, their goods covered up. What is the problem? no market today? I asked. I was told that they were told by the local govt to close shop and not sell or open till 4pm as Buhari is in town visiting. I was shocked at this sort of oppression by the he govt especially to the poor and voiceless Citizens of this Nation.
    First off, the govt don’t have any social welfare to cushion the effect of their lost income today.
    Majority of them borrowed money or sold all they had to afford a market space.
    They depend on their daily sales to feed their children and support their families. Some women that are unlucky to be married to drunken abusive husbands who are expecting money from them at the end of the day to visit their beer palours will receive a severe beaten all because Buhari is in town.
    A lot of people trekked to work and will probably trekk back home because Buhari is in town.
    Danfos and keke were grounded in certain areas. More lost income and more children will go to bed hungry tonight.
    The ripple effects of this Buhari’s visit is enormous.
    People are suffering in this country and the govt is oblivious
    and insensitive to their plight and the nation as a whole.
    It is really sad.
