President Muhammadu Buhari is currently in Lagos state on a two-day working visit.
Based on his movements within the city, security operatives blocked major roads, subjecting residents to hardship.

Many trekked several kilometres to their destinations while some were stranded.
Some Nigerians took to Twitter to vent their anger and here are a couple of reactions…
Gen. Buhari, who terminated the Lagos Metroline Project in 1984 & paid the cost of construction as a consequence, came back as President Buhari in 2018 – 34 years later, to commission a bus terminal.

I really don’t know why Lagos had to shutdown for President Buhari’s visit. He lives here in Abuja and moves around amongst us on a regular basis, and we have never had to shut down the city for one day.

So because Buhari is now in Lagos, human being will now be trekking anyhow. But wait oo, I thought our Leaders were elected to serve us, and not the other way around.#PMBinLagos pic.twitter.com/S7lODiBmAd

This New Airport Terminal in Lagos was built and commissioned by GEJ
No public holiday was declared for its commissioning
No road closures.
No fan fare

When Buhari eventually visited Dapchi, Gov Geidam took out newspaper ads to thank him for d visit. If u are from Lagos, please appeal to ur Gov not to photocopy d stupidity of his Yobe colleague. That is one assault on civilization we shouldn't have to handle this Easter season.

Lagos people, it doesn’t matter how upset you are at Buhari, please don’t throw anything at the president’s motorcade. You’ll be rightfully deemed a threat and the consequences could be fatal.
Do not throw anything at the president’s motorcade!

Lagos is aggressively looking for funds, so much so it jacked up Land Use Charges to ridiculous levels. Yet APC shut Lagos down for Buhari and lost the $250 million that accrues to its GDP everyday! I hope Ambode wont try to recoup the lost revenue by increasing other charges.

While President Buhari is in Lagos to commission a Bus Stop or Terminal, This is what the President of Kenya commissioned last year – World Class Rail Stations.
Are we going backward or forward?

Agents of the State are mobilising 10 people from each ward in Lagos with a promise of NGN3,000 to come and hail Buhari while the police has caged the NBA Ikeja Branch which wishes to protest against Ambode’s retrogressive policies.
Any crowd you see in Lagos today is rented.
