Bus Terminal and Bus Stop Differences | What is Bus Terminal | What is Bus Stop.
The recent visit of Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari to Lagos, the biggest city in West Africa to, among other activities, commission the Ikeja Bus terminal has raised a lot of controversies on the Social Media.
Nigerians have questioned the need to have the President come down all by himself to commission an ‘ordinary bus stop’ as they choose to put it.
One of the likeliest reasons for this reactions is the confusion that exists in the mind of many about the difference between a Bus Stop and a Bus Terminal.
It must, however, be stated that the Ikeja Bus terminal is the first of its kind in the west African country and it was built by the Governor of Lagos state, Akinwumi Ambode.
