Not only Lagos island bt most of Lagos. What we need to know now is which ones are critical.

Many unfit houses may not be a danger now.

LLSAINT:
As an expert in Emergency Management, much as the role could be multi-dimensional, but the onus lies on the government to take actions on such matters.
Nigeria has been so lackadaisical in the approach on Disaster Management ranging from flood, fire, building collapse etc
How can a Governor be quick to accuse the owner of the building in resisting the demolition exercise when such building has been marked?
It only shows a failed system where no one wants to take responsibility.
In a sane clime, the Chairman/Director, SEMA lagos state or any other agency responsible in Development Authority in Lagos should have either resigned or be fired but not in Nigeria.
We are yet to even see the C-in-C commiserating with the bereaved as seen in saner climes but here, is a poo hole.
So sad to express my feelings in writing.
My heart felt condolences to the families.... cry
I agree, you are writing as if those concerned will listen, we have had several building collapse in the past, how many people have been brought to book, that is to tell you that Nigeria is a failed state, it is called dog chop dog society sad

Lagos State government should take housing matter seriously.. The way houses are so close to each other in Lagos, I wonder how the occupants of such houses manage to get ventilation.
Jide Sanwo Olu already got his first major task to proof that he's indeed the man for the job..
Lol....that is where I grew up

Time will come when many buildings will collapse as result of thermal explosion caused by industry which will weaken the layer of earth in which building are erected.

kleverley:
must every school be a storey building??
must a storey building be built on an island ??
what's wrong if u build a flat for ur school?
we know that this Nigeria can build a flat at first, then later on they'll convert it to a storey building then the foundation carries excess load and makes it likely to collapse
biko this country sef

They build the storey building because of their greediness so that they can collect more rents from the occupants cool

Lagos; a city like many others where life diminishes but they say it is the epitome of life.

Lagos; a city that represents failure and ignorance of man but they say success is the atmosphere.

Lagos; a city where nothing has value except money, money and money.

Lagos; a city where virtually everything is contaminated and corrupted but they say it is the centre of excellence.

Lagos; a city where everyone is in a hurry even in their sleep chasing nothing.

Lagos; a space gradually losing its contact with Nature but they say it is growing into a mega city.

If this is what development is all about, I pray that the places I love will never develop.


I live in Lagos but I can never recommend it as a place to live in.

My view.
