5 Things To Know About Lagos (for JJC corpers)


Okay. So I get to wear my Ajuwaya uniform to jump buses and cross the streets of Lagos with eyes gawking and men calling 'corper' like I forgot who I was. Done that three times. First was on tuesday, the day we left camp. I reported to my local government 'cause they had threatened us in camp that payment from the state government was going to be on a 'first come, first serve' basis. I submitted my posting letter and was told to come back on tuesday, the next week. So I did, the second time, jumping buses, crossing streets and having the whole world know I am a corps member. All to get back to the LG and was told to come back on thursday. Today is that thursday. I dressed up again, went through all that again and Thursday was turned to Monday. This is the beginning of the story of my Lagos life.
I have learnt 5 things about Lagos in 3days. They are:
1. Bus fare from your house to your backyard is 50 Naira
2. Everything you need for a living is just downstairs
3. If you sleep with your clothes on, you're wrong
4. Always have an umbrella in your handbag
5. Hold your bus fare in your palm before you enter the bus
