A two-storey building collapsed in Lagos Island last week, and ever since, the Lagos State Government and its various agencies have been working overtime, enforcing all the state planning laws with maximum alacrity.
The most concerning part is that they sealed off the premises of the collapsed building, and TEN other adjoining buildings on the ground that they are all structurally defective. Occupants of these buildings are now homeless and confused, but Eko no send them…
Rewind to the collapse of TB Joshua’s church where more than ONE HUNDRED lives perished; the same Lagos State Government and its various agencies totally forgot about their state planning laws and couldn’t even bark, let alone seal off the church’s premises.
The hypocrisy in the animal farm called Nigeria is getting more interesting by the day.
