Festac Town has lost its glory. Bad roads and shops everywhere. Almost all ground floor of block of flats have been converted to business centres. Duplexes are not left out in the madness. The last time Festac Town had a good serenity of environment was in the early 2000s.

I miss the town though cos I was born and bred there.

If government (Federal or State) intervene in the matter, your tribal orientation will emerge and overshadow rational thought.

Festac used to be multicultural. Guess the people that live in festac nowadays after they hijacked it.
The tribe starts with an I and ends with O. They invaded the town and messed it up.

Dude soo you are pained cos your trybes menh can afford to buy houses or rent houses in festac, but rather live in ajegunle, orile, MAZAMAZA, agboju etc. Isheri is just an outskirts of festac go there and see the wonders that men are building.
Govt didn't give permission for residents or house owner to build, demolish and reconstruct their choice of architecture.

Obaofpigs what's your take on this?

Once some people move to an area the area is guaranteed to go south.

One problem Africa faces is sustainability. We build with no plans to maintain. Leader A comes with Plan A, dumping his predecessors blueprint. When leader B assumes power after leader A, he dumps everything leader A has been up to. No continuity, that's why we will never grow

i can bet you can't afford to pay rent, at festac. I can bet on this. You can't afford living at festac. It's always the poor. That sound this way. And that's why the senate, doesn't see your kind worthy to earn above 60k.

Welcome to our latest video exploring Festac Lagos in 2024! Join us as we take you through the vibrant streets of this dynamic neighborhood, showcasing its modern infrastructure, bustling markets, and cultural landmarks. Discover how Festac has evolved with new residential areas, innovative businesses, and community spaces.

The Festac Town I knew back in 1980 was VERY modern and exclusive. Something like a scene right out of well-planned American or European gated estates with smooth roads. The lights came on automatically if there was ever an outage. I remember the 5th Avenue area had some ongoing construction and freshly built twin-duplexes that had NOT yet been occupied by families... Just empty.

The years of military rule led to the master plan of Festac being distorted and the playgrounds, underground drainage channels and other areas were shared among some of those military guys from the Gen. Ibrahim Babangida years, who built many posh mansions after becoming overnight multimillionaires on the restricted areas and "Cocaine Avenue"... then the visible influx of large numbers of economic migrants from parts of Nigeria and people of different social classes who started living in BQs of some houses and sharing flats from the early 1990s right into the 2000s gradually undid FESTAC Towns beauty. Even Satellite Town went through the same decay.

The FHA clearly wasn't allowed to do a good job of maintaining Festac Town tbh. Facility management has always been a problem for most estates that are not privately built in Nigeria. A strict adherance to the original Festac Town master plan would have been the best but those military boys from the 1980s and their cronies started altering some of those plans including the green belt (separating Festac Town from the Lagos-Badagry expressway) that some churches started building and encroaching on.
