Popular media personality, Toke Makinwa has come out to blast the lack of air conditioners at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport.
She recently had her say via her social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, it is very sad that airport officials have to work under that condition, which probably explains why they always transfer their anger and frustration on travelers.
Toke added that she is standing at arrivals dripping in sweat and all she can think about are the officers in the box who have to endure that daily.
Her words, “Touch down Lagos Nigeria and the heat at the airport is insane, why will the A/C at arrivals not work??? The fans blowing hot air and the officers having to work under such circumstances is SAD. What a country.”
“I’m standing at arrivals dripping in sweat and all I can think is the officers in the box who have to endure this daily. Like we have all just accepted this as normal cos we go into our cars with A/C’a after but these people who work here under such harsh conditions are human too.”
“No wonder they take out their anger and impatience on travelers. You enter Nigeria and pick up stress. Yuck.”
