Nollywood actress, Mary Remmy Njoku, has bewailed the struggle of commuting from Lagos Mainland to the Island on a daily basis.
The ROK TV founder took to her Instagram page to complain bitterly about the stress following an unpleasant experience.
Mary, who was going to the Island, said she left her home on the mainland as early as 6AM but was still stuck in “mad” traffic.
She then asked her fellow mainlanders who work on the Island how they do it everyday, adding that commuting between locations daily is not healthy.
The 37-year-old actress wrote,
“Dear fellow mainlanders
How do you go to work on the Island everyday?
I left 6AM and the traffic is mad.
I need the hack pls
“I can’t do this. Doing this everyday isn’t healthy at all”
Her post has sparked massive reactions from netizens, who shared the strategy they use to evade traffic.
