Lagos Lockdown Day 5

This picture speaks to me on so many levels. It brays about the quota system in Nigeria. Speaks about leadership in Nigeria. It speaks of the COVID19 pandemic and people’s refusal, inability, to self-isolate.

Today marks Day 5 of the Lagos Lockdown. Today I would go across the street to buy credit for my phone. It would be my first time out of my house since the lockdown began.

The lead image was chosen because the of the conversation I had with a man from Kano state.

I am still aghast that we are said to belong to the same nation as the Northerners. This contraption by the British cannot last.

There was electricity for a while and my neighbour switched off her generator. I was able to get some much-needed sleep.

The lights are off now and we are running on generator. I am sincerely hoping that the lockdown is not extended.

Enforcement of the lockdown in the Northern part of Nigeria has seen violent clashes. For as long as I can remember, the North has been the problem of the whole country.
