She mentioned that the Nigerian government needs to fix the conduciveness at the airport with immediate effect.
Expressing her disgust, Makinwa wrote:
”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”
