The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo had paid an unscheduled visit to the Murtal Mubahmmed International Airport, Lagos on Thursday where none of the key officials was on seat. He inspected the toilets within the airport and what he found was an eye-sore. He however, returned to Abuja a sad man as The Street Journal gathered.
