Nigerians react as people queue to buy ticket at train station

Without any iota of doubt, the Nigerian transport system will always draw a long debate and generate different opinions among users, especially those who see the system as an irony of what a modern transport institution should be.

Despite the effort and commitment of the federal government, the system has not been effectively managed to accommodate the growing population of the country.

And of course, the manifestation of this was boldly shown in a picture shared by a social media user lamenting how people were stuck at a Nigerian rail station jostling for tickets.

This frustration consequently made Nigerians come on Twitter to register their displeasure.

See the tweet:

The angry reactions that followed:

Berating the Nigerian Railway Service, a Twitter user, Shukur, commented: "When we always run business as a nation instead of institution. Make ticketing an online option and save us the stress."

Who bewitched Nigeria?

A Twitter user attributed the long queue to the fear of kidnappers. Going by his comment, those on the queue were forced to seek the stress-filled alternative in order to avoid being kidnapped on Nigerian highways.

Another user was of the opinion that the queue is occasioned by the terrible reality of those running the railway service benefiting from it.
