It all started when an Abuja Lawyer and twitter user with twitter handle @martobono made a tweet warning Lagos lawyers not to drag Abuja lawyers into their hard life.
“Some of you in Lagos will start making phone calls to Abuja people at 6am, to discuss matters that are neither urgent nor important while in traffic. Listen, we don’t wake up at 6am except we have flight to catch or exercise to perform. Please don’t drag us into your hard life”
The banters were both hilarious and thought provoking
Some of you in Lagos will start making phone calls to Abuja people at 6am, to discuss matters that are neither urgent nor important while in traffic.
Listen, we don’t wake up at 6am except we have flight to catch or excercise to perform. Please don’t drag us into your hard life

Bros, I beg you, stop advertising Abuja. We don't want more people here. Lagos people, Abuja is one hell of an expensive city. Just maintain your lanes

Come back to this tweet when you're 65, then you'll realise we've been dying little by little in the traffic.
All I want is the Lagos money in Ibadan or Osogno.
