1. Be Alert
2. Be Sharp:
To cope in Lagos, this is very basic. This is next to being alert. Sharpness is the way you react to a sudden occurrence.
3. Be Bold
In Lagos, you don’t have to be shy or act all reserved (keep that at home). Boldness in this context means to ask for directions if confused about your whereabouts, remind the bus conductor (for those that choose to go by public transport) the bus-stop you are heading to. Feel free to ask for your balance as often as you remember it before you alight.
4. Be Smart
5. Be Sociable
You cannot be an island in Lagos. Greet people around you especially on the route you frequently take out. Remember, that Akara (bean cake) woman you usually greet will notify you of a dropped wallet.
