Been doing a bit of traveling around Nigeria (more to come), seeing ongoing infrastructure projects. Impressive sights. What I find most intriguing is how unaware people are, even of projects near them. Part of issue is prob that we just have grown up not expecting these things.
There are still people who will argue that nothing is happening re #LagosIbadanRail. For some its partisan blindness (as the Yoruba say, you can't wake a man pretending to be asleep).

But for many others its just genuine disbelief. Because they haven't seen it, it can't exist.
Another striking thing is THE SHEER SCALE of what needs to be done. Even after Buhari's 8 years,even with all the focus on #Infra, there will still be a lot to be done. Because for much of the time in our history(when we had money!) we didn't do these things. The DEFICIT is much.
