British-Nigerian businessman, Jason Njoku has lamented the current state of Lagos roads and its implication on businesses.
In tweets shared on his handle, Njoku who arrived Lagos state on Tuesday, August 8, said he was shocked to see the absence of cars on the road.
He said that he can only imagine the economic devastation occurring on an individual basis.
”Just landed in Lagos. The lack of traffic in Lagos is eerie, like some zombie apocalypse. I can imagine the economic devastation occurring on an individual basis. Where did all the cars go? How does that normalise? What is the new normal?” he asked.
He added that everywhere is empty and that the lack of traffic shows that consumption has definitely collapsed.
He continued: ”Twitter vs Actual is surreal. The reality feels so different to being on ground. The middle & working classes are suffering. Everywhere is empty. Restaurants, hotels, roads. Consumption has definitely collapsed. You can see it clearly in FMCG. Maybe I’m just a hater though.”
