Its no doubt the advent of a new era in Lagos and most lagosians are still thrilled at the great deal of change unleashed by one of the Top five Governors in Naija.
Bit by bit, we all look forward eagerly to the Lasgidi of our dreams and post a mental image of it in the next few years in our Memory.
When Governor Raji Fashola came into power after the last tenure of popular Ex Bola Tinubu (known as ojuyobo), so many people think it's going to be the God father and God son swagger and most of the BBP (Bad Belle People) look forward to another Anambra State look alike crisis or the Kwara State kind of God father God son fuck ups...
But alas, we were all caught unawares and presently AC (Action Congress) still remains a party to reckon with in the South-West. All thanks to Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Raji Tunde Fashola has made for himself a name and that name would linger on in the mouth and hearts of all Lagosians even in many years to come.
An average Lagosian would tell you that though fashola has this smiling and ever friendly face, he is a no-nonsense kind of person and whatever he sets out to do in his mind, there is no going back.
Oshodi is one of the many places that has gone through the potent FASHOLA's magical touch! Being one of the most razz and unfriendly places in lagos where anything goes and no crime in the whole of this world is a new thing, Oshodi make boost of the greatest chunk of Lasgidi's population with a kind of hustle and bustle you just can't find in any other part of Lagos.
Apart from housing big time robbers, area boys, area mommas and the like, it is an abode for the homeless, familiar spirits and even the akudayas (Dead people said to come back to life to live again). And of course all these cliques of people buy and sell in the then popular Oshodi Market.
When Governor Fashola announced the "Rebranding"..lol of Oshodi, people winked their noses and shoved it aside. Most of the people in his cabinet even advised him to - LEAVE THAT SIDE!
But today, oshodi has become a dream come true and it's an evidence of good things to come in lagos.
Presently, the sexy hot corporate cabs, the well airconditioned BRT buses, the well lite streets and the road beautification is enough reasons to say We are getting there!
Though there are still issues about road, good drainage and the likes, but The rebranding of lagos has come a long way and we can only hope that the best is truly yet to come.
We surely aint seen nothing yet, Lagos will be another small london in naija while states like Crossriver and Jos would only fit in as second best.
EKO ONI BAJE OOO!!!
