 Africa’s largest city in-terms of population.

 Nigeria’s economic hub.

The most sought -after

 Destination preferred.

A Mega City yet a Mega Slum!  

What a contradiction!

Our beloved Lagos City is over populated, a population explosion powered by rural – urban migration and urban – urban migration fueled by the search for job opportunities, growing insecurity in other cities of Nigeria. Also, a young population inadvertently has a high birth rate too.


The City of Lagos and it’s inhabitants and rightly so. The poor drainage system, arbitrary construction on Canals coupled with an inefficient waste disposal system continues to keep the city threatened. Lives and Properties have unfortunately become annual sacrifices to the flood. 

So, when the rains pour down from above and the surrounding water bodies surge forward in response, the city is brought to its knees in tears.

A dream. A possibility. A project. A prayer. 

With a staggering population of more than 24 million human waste generators, churning out over 13,000 metric tonnes of solid waste daily and despite thousands of waste disposal trucks, solid and liquid waste disposal continues to be a major challenge in Lagos state. LAWMA and the PSPs continue to push on for a cleaner Lagos.

Lagos is synonymous with traffic. There are jokes about how the traffic tie gele and double wrapper. πŸ˜ƒ  Beyond the grid lock are the emissions from the traditional petrol-powered Vehicles which are highly detrimental to human, animal and plant health and by extension the entire environment.

However, the future of the auto industry is changing. The Future is Electric vehicles with fast charging locations including self driven public vehicles.

 Ranging from  πŸ‘οΈ better pass my neighbour to more sophisticated generators we continue to inhale the fumes and hum along to the detriment of our health. 

The noise decibels we are exposed to at home and at work is a big concern to the ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) Medical Practitioners as the no of patients with hearing loss continues to climb the charts.

Another menace we see in Lasgidi is disorganisation in construction.

For starters if you take a drive from Ajah to Eleko axis you’ll be quick to notice the haphazard manner in which residential developments and commercial ones are located.  Have you ever seen an aerial view of these locations?

It appears that the inhabitants of these areas got there faster than anticipated by the Urban Planning arm of the government. 

To forestall this, data driven decisions have to be made for the emerging cities to properly structure these cities in readiness for future migration. 

 The issues plaguing the highly sought-after Lagos ranges from over population, slums, waste disposal challenges, flood, traffic, bad roads, insecurity, concrete based communities, electricity challenges and weak enforcement of construction policies etc. 

With climate changes and resultant effects on our environment, it’s time to get intentional about planning the future cities

This is why the New Town Development Project in Lagos is a brilliant initiative focused on birthing new and regulated districts, settlements and cities to check the incidence of global urbanization which projects that about 70% of the world’s population will live in Cities by the year 2050. 

Without proper planning and regulation, over crowding and poor living conditions are inevitable hence the New Town Development Project which will ensure better housing, access to quality health care facilities, more inclusive, liveable and self-sustaining cities. 

This project has two key components: 1. The Future City project

2. The CSR Initiative to relocate and improve the living conditions of the Makoko inhabitants.

According to the Nigeria Metro Area Population 1950-2022

The current metro area population of Lagos in 2022 is 15,388,000, a 3.54% increase from 2021. The metro area population of Lagos in 2021 was 14,862,000, a 3.44% increase from 2020. The metro area population of Lagos in 2020 was 14,368,000, a 3.34% increase from 2019.

The Lagoonix is a proposed FLOATING community, a CSR initiative of our Partner Company Landwey to create new and sustainable habitats for the residents of Makoko a slum seen clearly from the Third mainland bridge axis in Lagos. 

New and green based technology will be used to cater for shelter, energy and water for the residents to improve their quality of life and checkmate a possible outbreak of diseases. 

The marine ecosystem will also be improved by extension in the general interest of us all. 

A floating school, farm and zero emissions-based transportation will also be introduced. 

To achieve this long term and audacious project, 1% of the revenue from the Future City project will be channeled into this laudable initiative. Be a part of the transformation of Makoko Slum.
