1. In Lagos, no place is “too far” to invest in land.
From my experience, I know this is very true. I have driven to Ikorodu from Ajah in less than 1hr 20mins on a Sunday morning. Recently, it took me less than an hour to drive from Ajah to Ode Omi, Ibeju-Lekki. Ode-omi is after Dangote Refinery and Lacampagne Tropicana Beach Resort. It borders Ogun state. If the road is free, no place is far in Lagos.

I remember asking myself “why in the world will he (my sister’s husband) get a house in this place?” It was not a wise question. I was young.
