Traveling for Christmas in 2018? Check These Inter-States Prices Out Detola Deedee Features, Relationship Hacks Traveling for Christmas in 2018: All over the world, the ember months keep people energized and bursting with excitement. This last quarter of the year is when all the jollification, partying and family reunion happens, that time when you have to leave whatever it is that has been holding you from the beginning of the year until the very end and find your way back to those that matter to you, a time to cherish,, share life experiences, make jokes, go over childhood memories, have a blast with series of consumables, hang out at interesting spots, see a movie with family, visit the zoo etc. the list is typically endless. One of the ember months stand out from the rest and without being told, everyone already knows that the almighty December is being referenced here as it plays host yearly to the birth of one of the greatest men to ever walk the surface of the earth, a man of the spiritual realm, who descended into the body of man to live amongst its subject just to know how to best serve them and that man is no other than Jesus Christ. Another feature of December that endears it to the heart of all and sundry is the closeness of the last day of everyone’s favorite month i.e. December 31st to the first day of each year, this last day of December is where the magic happens everywhere around the world, in Nigeria for instance, there is usually a watchnight around the nation, a night for friends, families and work associates to gather round in clubhouses, churches and other agreed upon places to have the last bit of fun, make plans for the new year, review the plans made the previous year and for those who are believers, pray, bind plus cast every spirit that might make the year they are about to enter an uneventful year. Regardless of how colorful the picture I have painted above might occur, there are several factors that might make it less desirable for some. One of such factors is transportation. Transportation in Nigeria is essential to our day to day activities. Whether you like it or not, moving from place to place every day is as important as getting something to eat in the morning, afternoon and night. The bummer with transportation in Nigeria especially during the festive period is usually split in two ways; i)Greed & ii) fuel Scarcity. From the greed point of view, it cannot be said to only be a Nigerians thing as many all over the world activate their rush hour mode very close to the end of the year, November/December to be precise, all their dreams and ambitions that they had refused to work towards from the beginning of the year becomes something they get “passionate” or clearly put, desperate about at the very end of the year. It is the reason why there are so many ritual killings and accidents in the ember months, everyone everywhere are rushing to achieve something, it might be that housing project they had been working on for a couple of months now, extra cash to get a brand new car, money to get Christmas provisions for various family members etc. Fuel scarcity, on the other hand, has been something that has been plaguing the nation for long, the issue can be traced as far back as 1966 when General Yakubu Gowon was head of state, petrol pump price in from 6kobo to 8.45kobo. Here is an overview of how fuel prices have increased in Nigeria over the years. Head of State period Former price After price change Hike percentage Muritala 1976 8.45k 9k 0.59% Obasanjo October 1, 1978 9k 15.3k 70% Shagari April 20, 1982 15.3k 20k 30.71% Babangida March 31 1986 20k 39.5k 97.5% 42k 60k 60k 70k Shonekan N5 Abacha 3.25k October 2,1994 N3.25k N15 361.54% October 4,1994 N15 N11 -26.67% Abubakar December, 20, 1998 N11 N25 127.27% January 6,1999 N25 N20 -20% These two humongous factors hit Nigeria as a nation yearly and nothing has been done to curb it and ease the hardship of its citizens during the festive periods i.e. New year, Christmas celebration, Easter celebration, eid kabir, sallah and during the nationwide celebrated independence day.

Regardless, you should be in the know of the price fluctuations and your need to be prepared mentally and financially for the festive period spending. December festivities are here upon us already in a flash, there is no need to prove to anyone that you have more money than they do, there is no need to give yourself unrealistic expectations, do whatever it is you can afford that won’t hurt you now and in the future as it is the nest thing you can do for yourself, your future self and your loved ones. What is the transport situation on your end. How are the cost of inter-state travels around you. Care to share with us?
