American man laments corruption at Lagos Airport, shares his experience
An American travel vlogger, Sabbatical Tommy, has lamented about his experience of visiting Nigeria for the first time. Wearing a facemask while filming the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, the man said that the corruption among officials is on another level.
According to him, every protocol at the airport can be waived if one has money to pay. You can buy any official at Nigeria’s Airport, he affirms.
Tommy added that even if you do not want to have your bags checked, an official can be paid for it. Tommy revealed that the country is not for the faint-hearted.
In his words: “The Lagos airport is that every definition of corruption that would pop out in the dictionary.
Literally everywhere, literally everything here. Coming in, you don’t want to wait in line for your COVID test; pay this guy. You don’t wanna have your bags checked, pay this guy….”©Standard Gazette, 2021.
