FUELING MY FRUSTRATION (Part 2)

3 guesses on what this is about...

I wrote this post on the Accelerate TV website about 10 months ago, when we had a fuel scarcity. I am beyond upset that this is now our reality. Everyone, everywhere is affected. The long queues causing horrible traffic as they stretch longer and longer by the day, blocking entrances/exits, taking up precious road space. And if you've ever been in Lagos, you know many of us already think of road rules as those funny things we don't need to obey. *I'm not even joking*

Here are a few of my favorite bits that are still (very sadly) our reality...

Fueling my Frustration: Elsewhere on the Web

In my latest article for Accelerate TV, I talk about what's been going on with the chronic petrol shortage that practically crippled the nation recently, and is still not quite over, aka the #Petrocalypse, as some Nigerians have been calling it.

Here's an excerpt:

Lagos is hilarious. And by hilarious, I mean frustrating and rage-inducing.  At least recently, as I know many may agree.

Humor me here for a second: If the past few weeks with all the fuel struggles in Nigeria haven’t affected you, then I hail you. Please select your preferred hailing here: Tuale/You’re the real MVP/I bow/Chairman/MAMA!!!!

This fuel scarcity has humbled almost everyone I know. If you (or if you’re fortunate, your probably sleep-deprived driver/maiguard/assistant) haven’t had to queue up for hours, only to get to the front of the line and get turned away, or you haven’t struggled with all manner of miscreants just for a few precious liters, then you, my friend, are blessed among men!

Please read the rest here

How did you survive the #Petrocalypse? What say you?
