Okay so back to the gist!
We departed Lagos at 7:30 a.m. Destination was Kotangora ,We passed through Lagos-Ibadan and headed towards Oyo State then to Ogbomosho. The journey was less eventful until we got to Oyo-Ogbomosho road where the landlords informed us our rent has not been paid hence we should get off the road. Yes I found myself often times going off the road, due to the trailers commandeering my drive lane. If you are conversant with the road, you will reckon !
Docked at Ogbomosho at 10:45 a.m.
body shaking like a drug addict anticipating his fix !
Docked at Ogbomosho at 10:45 a.m. body shaking like a drug addict anticipating his fix ! Oh thank goodness Iya Mutiu Amala did the job . They are life savers walahi!
THE JOURNEY CONTINUES…
Trudging through the local roads, getting on to the stretch that takes us to the boundary of Kwara State handing over to Niger State was a good ride. Roads are still as good as it has been for years. On the other leg, I was surprised at the road to Jebba. I have gone through this road many a time but today seems pretty different. The Government has done a fantastic job. The road was a pain for travellers.
Sauntered into Niger state at 1:35 p.m. onward marching to Kontagora. Weather unbelievably relatively cool at this time so we decided we could take the bashing of an unending journey as we still had about 210 minutes journey time.
Body aches, fingers numb,
my mind rovers in trepidation!
Finally we find ourselves at our stopover Safara Motel and suits. Body aches, fingers numb, lips chapped, my mind rovers in trepidation! When, Where and How did all this emanate from?Who send me? BTW Hotel services and ambience has earned my five star sha.
Lights out 800km done, tomorrow will push 410km to the Caliphate.
Tomorrow you will hear about it!
