Nigeria: Demystifying Lagos

My Pen and My Paper demystifies Lagos: “Very briefly, who is an okada man.:
1) The okada man is a regular Nigerian male, jobless, who seeks to make a living by riding a motorcycle and offering short-distance transportation services to people.”

    Yes, the economy is such that “Man Must Survive” so these young men take to “Okada Riding” to make ends meet.
    In a way, they are a serious nuisance especially on street roads, but again, these people must indeed survive.

    Lagos, Nigeria
