  1. This is beautiful. I came to Nigeria 2yrs ago with my kids, Lagos looked so dirty and filtythen. Seeing these pictures makes me want to come back. I’m so proud of the new Lagos State Governor. I wish he became the next President of Nigeria. I know all those things he is doing now were doable; but the previous people in power seemed selfish and care less about the country.
    Thank God for the Governor and his carbinet that made this possible. May God bless you all.
    Very proud of you .

  2. Finally, some progress in Nigeria. We should stop letting Ghana shame us like they have been in the past. See what we too can do. Now for the rest of the country and this useless baggerfool of a man we call our president. National, nation-wide makeover abeg ooo!

  3. i have been in a foreing country through most of my child hood since i was six. seeing how improved this country is over ten years has really made me want to go back i really miss nigeria lagos and seeing all the new malls in lagos is an unforgettable sight i would give anything just to go back great job governor. god…… bless…….. nigeria

  4. ‘Change’ or die!
    Challenges of the modern world are characterised by an involuntary need to be adaptive, flexible and to be open to new ideas. Dynamism is key to survival; and speed is central to the clockwork functioning of our technologized, interconnected, globalized existence- typically within the personal to the organizational continuum.
    Do you sometimes hear this saying ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’? This is not exactly an ideal model to recommend because it typifies a system that is stagnant and only capable of responding to crisis at any given opportunity otherwise called ‘fire-fighting’! It does not give an example of an organization that is well managed rather it is indicative of the calibre of the human resource present within a system and the lack of commitment or the loss of edge. A ‘laissez-faire’ approach or organic mutation or progression does not sit in tangent with the twinned concepts of pragmatism and dynamism.
    ‘If it ain’t broke don’t fix it’- how pragmatic and dynamic is the Nigerian Government when it knows that everything is broken and everything needs fixing? The list is long but here are some of them- electricity, primary health care, education, clean potable water (perhaps also more relevant- in view of the environmental degradation caused by ‘pure water’ plastic packaging!).
    Rhetoric from Politicians show that they know what the solutions are (but clearly not how to go about the process for implementing change). The question is- when will the suffering populace see a change for the better? The problems that Nigeria is grappling with in the 21st Century- the self-imposed cumbersome processes and resistance to progress with its inherent waste of resources and the lack of progress in the Country in comparison to other oil-rich economies of the world, are heartbreaking. (By the way, watch the space for the speed of Ghana’s development as it discovers oil!)
    I find my usual optimistic self scoffing at recent press hypes in an ill-advised Public Relation campaign from the Government. Real issues affecting the people must be addressed. Poignant reminders for me are the lack of electricity and flooding. White Disu Crescent at Ikotun (not VI or Lekki or any of the rich areas!) has not had power since May 1. NEPA has been on strike for two months at Ibadan. For me these are the headlines! Do you know that recently EDF was fined £2M by the Power regulators in Britain for Power failures in East London which is incomparable to the scale of what Nigerian consumers are been put through? Recent flooding, for me is symptomatic of a decaying system and it is the flashpoint of my introspective analysis and my subsequent conclusion that Nigeria has not been prepared to face the challenges of a modern nation state and a teeming population.

    Our Model shows that abundance of resources does not translate to development. The intrinsic ingredients for socio-economic development- altruism and utilitarianism are lacking. The cog in the Nigerian system is not our lack of vision but the lack of will. We need to be more efficient and responsive to change if we are to survive.

  5. i think the government of lagos state is really doing a perfect job, and as an environmentalist i will advice all other states in nigeria should emulate lagos for a beautiful and comfortably nigeria

  6. I just returned from a 25 year absence from Nigeria and I cannot say much has changed. Only the people are losing their culture and embracing Western culture from the clothes, hair and music. But one important fact is still missing from Nigeria that you must celebrate what makes you African! Yes, after 25 years you still have no water, lights, and have horrible traffic delays. But that is what makes you different. I did not come to Nigeria to see my self in a imitation, but to see what I missed, the food, culture, people, and family. True some areas are developed in Lagos, but in our neighborhoods roads are non exsistent! What good is having abundant resources if they are not used towards positive growth and development?

  7. it’s profoundly shameful to note that nigerias are embracing the western culture particularly giving the fact that black people have a very rich cultural heritage far richer than that of the west, having said that, if we recall the very demonic diabolic and devilish act of slavery and colonialism black people should have nothing to with western values let alone practicing it, I have lived the west for many years and I can confidently say that western way of life portrays high degree of immorality, they strongly advocates homophobic culture which is a complete act of evil, Black people wake up, be proud of your black inheritance and let’s get rid of this ignorance that is affecting our mind set, lets unite in order to move africa forward, lets get rid of this greedy crops of fools in the corridors of power, lets say no to oppression, the west is our enemy and will always be therefore lets be satisfied with our africa culture and uphold our black values as defined by our great ancestors, long live the black nation, long live africa.

  8.
