Diary of a Lagos Commuter: Strength of a woman

I once saw a female cab driver. I didn’t share anything on her because I wanted to be sure about what I saw. Then some days ago as I was trying to cross to the other side of the road at Ogudu, an area in Lagos, to get a bus to Ojota,  she drove past and stopped, beckoning on some of us (passengers) to enter her own cab. Of course, I did with all pleasure and enthusiasm. I got an opportunity to authenticate my thoughts. I know seeing a lady driver is not new, but we do not have many of them yet. I’m just wondering how she is able to survive this ‘igboro’ hustle with the calibre of people in the ‘business’.
