Popular filmmaker, Charles Novia has come out to say that the first shock that hits those arriving Lagos from an International flight at the MMA International wing is the smell of the toilet at the airport. He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he is very angry at the state of the airport having just come from a country with world-class airport facilities, and the tardily dressed immigration officials is nothing to write home about too.
He added that the airport in Lagos is the symbolism of the state of the nation right now.
His words, “For those arriving Lagos from an International flight at the MMA International wing, the first shock which hits you as you step out of the plane is the smell of the toilets at the airport.”
“A pungent smell of shit and antiseptic smacks your nostrils. As you walk towards the immigration area, angry at the state of the airport having just come from a country with world class airport facilities, the next shock would be tardily dressed immigration officials (at least the day I arrived from my trip I saw a couple of them wearing slippers and smudged uniforms). That airport in Lagos, the old one, is the symbolism of the state of the nation right now.”
“I don’t think Abuja Airport is like that as I have traveled through Abuja Airport on international flights a few times but the Lagos Airport actually takes the piss, all pun intended too.”
