Fashola Is Impressed By The Skills Of Hawkers In Traffic — See What He Said

Traffic Hawker <br /><br /> Kingsway Road, Ikoyi, Lagos

Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, yesterday marveled at the ingenuity and the entrepreneur skills displayed by highway hawkers in some Nigerian cities, especially Lagos.

He described the traits displayed almost simultaneously while selling on the highways as misused skills.

The governor said there is nowhere in the world where youths dominated the highways with such entrepreneurship skills.

He said: “I have travelled a little bit and I am not sure if there are many places in the world where we will find young people, running through traffic, balancing their wares on their heads, chase the moving cars and selling their goods, calculating how many they have sold and doing mental sums and giving you change.

“If you just pause to think on the skills displayed, the flexibility and adaptability that is required to carry out those functions. I don’t know how many of us can do it.

“So, let nobody come and tell me that Nigerians are not skillful, let them not also come and tell me that they are not enterprising. If that is not a display of skills and a display of enterprise then you know what it is.”

Governor Fashola, however, lamented that such skills were unfortunately wrongly deployed to unsustainable business, adding that the state government is determined to divert such skills and enterprise to a more promising and sustainable business model.

    Is that true? When Task force from the Kick Against Indiscipline pursue this traffic hawkers into their death often times in bid to arrest them.
    As if that is not enough, when this people are finally arrested, they are whisked away in Black Marias as if they are criminals and not free citizens trying to make an honest living.

    Un professeur de sciences conomiques l’cole nationale de l’administration publique, Michel Boucher, doute que le futur chantier Davie, rachet par Teco Administration, soit comptitif sur le march. son avis, l’exprience passe a dmontr que le chantier maritime de Lvis a dpass les cots lorsqu’il a rnov les frgates et fait de mme lors de la ralisation de platesformes de forage.
