Talking about various means of transportation in Lagos, the Okada whiich is a basically a bicycle has taken prominence. There is nowhere in Lagos that you don't see Okada except the highbrow areas like Ikoyi,Ajah,Banana island etc. most times there are cases of fight between the Okada riders and their passengers due to issues like cost of transportion, inability to carry passengers to their original destinations, etc.Most of these problems arose due to lack of communication between the passengers and the Okada riders. The manner of approach realy matters
They liked to be approached gently , tell the the place u are going and make sure u finalise the fare . its also very important to know the place u are going so as to rationalise how much the fare can be ,
It is also important to tell them to go slowly because many of them run fast when going,infact very fast, constantly remind them to go slowly NY saying KADANKADAN IF the one riding is is Hausa. Never allow them to go against the traffic as most of them do which result in accidents most times
Please when u are on Okada, your safety is in your hands ,don't keep quiet whenever you see them doing the wrong thing particularly when they are going against the traffic laws.
Best of luck
