Ibadan 2 Lagos

E je ki agba adura o. Father in Jesus name …

Nigerians, when it comes to verbal abuse, we give more than we get. I may be mistaken, but I think this was the same woman that was abusing a trader 10 minutes earlier “carry your smelly mouth away. We dont want to buy Waara. You probably didn’t wash your mouth today. Smelly mouth. I already told you that the person you are trying to sell to is on the phone”
Not sure what the trader said to have brought on the attack, but one could barely hear her voice anyway.
On my trip from Lagos to Ibadan two days earlier, as we were on the last couple of miles to the final busstop, there is a tendency for passengers to get off more frequently at various stops in Ibadan town.
The lady next to me suddenly challenged the driver to be calling out the names of the stops as we approached them, to which the driver responded that the lady better mention where she wanted to get off the bus. The tone was a little dismissive, but the next retort was that “Ok O, don’t call the names out. Just seat there with your mouth like a monkey’s. Isn’t that covered by the fare the passengers paid?”

Awon amuni deshe
Won a di eru bi eniti oun kuro nilu.
Elomi ofi ojuri Adeboye ri, won a gbe telivision siwaju won, won ama wo oun ti Adeboye n se.
Pastor Adeboye ni tie, jet loma gbe dele, enyin a wa ma fi ti yin ni awon eni eleni lara.
Ko sibi ti Olorun o si, kun le ni iyara e ko ba Olorun e soro.
Mori baba kan, in fact moni ko ma rin lo, boya ikun e ati e jo die. Kani won gbe alaisan lo Ibadan lana yen, ati ku ki won to de Ibadan.

(English translation of the preceding paragraph below:)
These people make one sin (by saying things possibly against the faith) through there actions.
They are on the move with so much luggage, it looks as if they are skipping town
Some of them have never actually seen Adeboye. A TV is placed in front of them on which they watch everything he is doing remotely.
As for Pastor Adeboye, he flies home in a jet, while all these people inconvenience others unnecessarily.
God is everywhere. Kneel down in the comfort of your room, and pray to your God.
I saw one old man walking along to the camp. In fact, I thought it was a good thing he is walking, maybe his huge stomach will shrink a little.
If an ill person was being taken to Ibadan yesterday, it’s unlikely he would make it that far, he would have died long before he gets to Ibadan. (she was talking about the standstill traffic jam of the previous Friday which she partly attributed to the “exodus” to the Redeemed Camp).

This was either the same lady that prayed at the start of the journey or another member of her group – they kept up a running commentary all the way to Lagos.

On a bus:
Jesus, the man behind the mask.
