Twitter Nigeria is currently caught up in the trend of “Danfo” and “Uber“. We don’t know actually what initiated this trend but whoever kicked off with the conversation wants us to understand something.
Although, the thread in another way round can be traced to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s declaration of ban on Danfo in Lagos state to foster other means of job opportunities for the youths.
Danfo is a popular old commercial bus (usually painted yellow) mostly found in Lagos. To an average Lagosian, it’s part of the hustle. Fast foward to 2016/2017, we now have corporate taxis the middle class are now hopping into – Uber.
Funny conversations are circulating Twitter as to how Lagosians have coping with the two.
