Just over a week ago I travelled to Ibadan with my colleague Niyi. We were doing some work at NTI’s South-West zonal office, installing some software we had written.
On the left is one of the major junctions and public transport hubs in Ibadan, I was staying in a guesthouse nearby. In the middle is the “Oyo State Luxurious Bus Terminal”, very grand but barely used, the buses just sit in the car park beside it. The picture on the right is of the sign at the front of my ABC Transport bus up to Abuja.
I’m beginning to think that somebody is spreading caltrops on the expressway in Ibadan, the ABC bus arrived with a fist-sized hole in one of its tyres. This is not the first time my bus has had a puncture in Ibadan.
