Popular media personality and brand influencer, Toke Makinwa, has cried out over the unavailability of air conditioners at the Lagos International Airport.
The popular show host who had just arrived Lagos, Nigeria complained in a tweet that instead of being welcomed with cool air she was met with an ‘insane heat.’
Covered up in sweat and obviously irritated, Toke Makinwa stated that she wondered how people worked in such a harsh condition.
She tweeted: “Touch down Lagos Nigeria and the heat at the airport is insane, why will the A/C at arrivals not work??? The fans blowing hot air and the officers having to work under such circumstances is SAD. What a country
“I’m standing at arrivals dripping in sweat and all I can think is the officers in the box who have to endure this daily. Like we have all just accepted this as normal cos we go into our cars with A/C’a after but these people who work here under such harsh conditions are human too
“No wonder they take out their anger and impatience on travelers. You enter Nigeria and pick up stress. Yuck”
Reacting to her post, @stufftony said; “Just that some people can’t make it better elsewhere.., just saying
@OfObong said; “Toke what do you want people on Twitter to do abeg? Why not tag FAAN and the minister of aviation to your tweet.
@Emirate2652 said; “What the hell!!!, don’t they know you?, sweating with all your makeuping, they suppose to dey give you special treatment sha… and those wey dey rely on public transport, ~African weather sucks
@CheskoSegun said; “Anyone that wants to relocate out of Nigeria should not complain about the heat at the airport so just bear the heat because where you want to relocate is natural cold. The airport is doing send-off for you by the heat you feel at the airport.
@Adeobawale said; “Such circumstance is the usual life of those officials working there, they can’t feel the heat because to them it’s normal but not to the travelers arriving. Most times the abnormal is normalized here in Nigeria. Welcome home sis Toke makinlo ti makinwa.”
