No emergency preparedness plan? No firefighters? Is there even water in the truck? Are the tires even pumped; better yet, are they existent on the truck? These are real questions. Nigeria, we have to do better. Baby steps, I know, but this frightens the living daylight out of me. Like. This is somebody's business for goodness sake! Millions $! Goods! Imported! Other people's products, who I know personally! This could have been my business / store. It could have been YOU! • And y'all wonder why it's challenging to make Nigeria my 100% base. How can I be assured that my homeland will hold me down when the unexpected happens!?! #Ebeano #EbeanoSupermarket #EbeanoonFire #BuchiAkpati
