This is the new Ikeja Bus Terminal, A first of it’s kind in Nigeria and probably in West Africa. As someone who has lived in the UK for few years, I always wonder why public transport passengers cannot be dignified with befitting buses and terminals like this one. I am happy that the Lagos state government is working on dignifying Lagosians.
When the construction of this beautiful edifice started, there where different suggestions of what is being constructed, ideas like shopping complex was mostly favoured. Little did we now that this is a construction of a modern first of it’s kind in Nigeria. I drive pass this location at least 5 times a week but I have lost hope in photographing public structures in Nigeria because of the bureaucratic bottleneck of getting permits or being harassed by a security officer or area boys alike.
On this night as I drove by, I could not resist the urge to park and set up my camera to take this awesome exposure. I’m happy with the outcome of this photo, I hope to get approval to bring you close ups and other perspectives.
Lagos is working
