Undoubtedly, Nigeria is blessed with many brilliant and creative minds, some of which are bold to challenge conventions and normal practices to improvise, profer an affordable, manageable and short-term solution to a problem. These improvised alternatives seem to be becoming the new normal in most cities especially in Lagos, which is considered the industrial hub of Africa.
A Nigerian man with the Twitter handle, @VictorIsrael_, took to the platform to share photos of what he spotted inside a bus in Lagos. From the photos which he shared, an unidentified bus driver, creativity improvised an onboard storage fuel tank for his commercial vehicle using a plastic gallon which he kept beside his driver's seat probably to keep a close eye on it.

Though, the improvised fuel tank seems to be a creative idea, but also a very risky move that poses lots of potential hazards like explosions due to overheating, to both the bus driver, passengers, and others road users.
