Lagos MMA International wing welcomes you with smell of the toilet at the airport - Charles Novia

Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA) Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA)

Filmmaker Charles Novia has bemoaned the state of the Lagos Murtala Muhammed Airport International wing.

According to him, arriving Lagos from an International flight at the MMA International wing is the smell of the toilet.

Narrating his ordeal, Novia said as one walks towards the immigration area, angry at the state of the airport having just come from a country with world class airport facilities, the next shock would be "tardily dressed immigration officials."

Adding that the airport in Lagos is the symbolism of the state of the nation right now.

"For those arriving Lagos from an International flight at the MMA International wing, the first shock which hits you as you step out of the plane is the smell of the toilets at the airport.

A pungent smell of shit and antiseptic smacks your nostrils. As you walk towards the immigration area, angry at the state of the airport having just come from a country with world class airport facilities, the next shock would be tardily dressed immigration officials (at least the day I arrived from my trip I saw a couple of them wearing slippers and smudged uniforms). That airport in Lagos, the old one, is the symbolism of the state of the nation right now.

Antiseptically shitty.

I don’t think Abuja Airport is like that as I have traveled through Abuja Airport on international flights a few times but the Lagos Airport actually takes the piss, all pun intended too."
