A video went viral yesterday of one of Nigeria’s Richest men, Femi Otedola in a commercial transportation in Lagos popularly called Molue. He claims to have boarded the bus from Sango, Ogun State to Agege, Lagos State.
It is however unclear why he decided to use this means of transportation. The interesting thing is that he wasn’t even recognised by passengers as everyone minded their business.
The billionaire shared the video on his Instagram page with the caption:
He captions the IG post, “Recently took a ride on the Molue from Sango to Agege … F.Ote”
Reactions from Nigerians have however trailed the video as many feel Otedola is up to something. Some say he wants to contest for a political office.
See reactions below
First, he created instagram account.
Months later, he moved to twitter.
Today, he rides with the poor in Molue public transport.
Very soon, we will know Femi Otedola’s intention

I don’t like when rich people romanticise poverty. Like entering a Molue and tagging it “Lagos Life” when in reality that Molue for the people who HAVE TO take it every day is nothing like ‘’
However, calling it poverty appropriation is ridiculous. Nobody owns poverty.

Otedola was inside molue and my neighbor couldn’t tell him his problems. He was looking at camera. He’s now at home drinking garri. Ha Booda Fatai, it’s that garri that will kill you. pic.twitter.com/8OLTcb8mP6
