Learning to drive in Nigeria is different from what is obtainable in other places in the world. If you ask different people, I bet you will get different answers on this subject. This portrays a disturbing trend in how much we take life serious in our country.
With the alarming rate of road crashes all over the world, over 1.3million people die every year; the low and middle-income countries, well concentrated, in Africa share a bulk of the figures, Nigeria being no exception. Going by this, you would think we should be doing more to prevent such alarming occurrences.
The entry point to the road (licensing of drivers) needs more stringent oversight and management; this does not imply more expensive process, but open, straightforward and not cumbersome, this can only make things better and close up the space for touting and extortion.
