Indeed, when it rains very hard, flooding is bound to occur on roads and streets.

However, the intensity of the flooding can be determined by the quality of drainage system put in place to channel the floodwater away from the roads and street.


Lagos state is one place that is not exactly famous for clean and dirt-free drainage systems.

In Lagos, drainage systems are typically considered by many of its residents as an alternative to refuse dumps.

This disgraceful culture is particularly not helped by the fact that the state government sees absolutely nothing crude about building uncovered drainages in a major city like Lagos in the 21st Century.

So, when next there is a less than torrential rainfall in Lagos, and it floods, no one ought to be surprised – the reasons are out there for us to see.

This is disgraceful to Lagos

Lagos of all State can't build a quality drainage system but they will be happy to embezzle Billions of naira annually in the name of building mega state or city.


The total 2018 Budgets pass by Abia,Imo,Anambra,Ebonyi Governments was #690Billion but for lagos was #1.046Tri 11.4% lower than Nigeria Budget.

But still no proper allocation for drainage system in lagos.

this is very shameful to lagos Government and it citizens

I mean which '21st century mega city' has 99% open gutters…?

What you see on these pictures above is Not a drainage system

A real drainage system is supposed to be Underground, and not visible to the human eye

Poor culture of waste disposal and the government's reluctance to cover the drainage because it is an eye sore.

I can imagine around a million PET bottles being disposed daily in Lagos not to talk about pure water sachets, those are huge raw materials for the discerning minds.

Drainage bawo? Abeg joor, all na refuse dump. grin

Drainage in 9ja na total joke. Do the gutters flow anywhere sef? undecided

The solution to these problems should be tackled at the local level where all local gov'ts should be tasked with ensuring a covered and clean drainage platform as a model. angry

I wonder the TRANSMISSION this kind of dirt will bring.

Way forward, create better job and business opportunities outside Lagos so people can move out thereby causing less dirt and blockage of the drainage.

I love how Lagos matter is giving you headache and heartache. Keep facing Lagos and it would only keep getting better.

I can see you've got lost hope in your Potopoto states. Don't give up. Maybe by 3033, one of your Potopoto states would be as clean as Mile 12 market.
