flooding. They put some things in place to prevent it, it is not just about drainage anymore, lekki and V.I need a complete overhaul in flood water control - this flood thing happens every year. it is about not planning the area properly.

And this is the reason why Ndigbo should invest at home and not on waterland.

For those wey don dey pray for pool since long time ago, i hope their prayers have been answered though...

Hahaha, the beef for people able to afford to live in Lekki is real! Don't hate people, it could be you one day. On topic, this is what you get with por planning and an often mindless desire to exploit every available inch of land (or water too apparently)

No doubt exacerbated by poor management of the environment.
People wantonly throw rubbish in the gutters outside their house and dump building site waste in the neighbouring creeks the look surprised when it rains and the water has nowhere to go
Maybe we will all wake up and be more responsible
Floods happen everywhere even in developed countries so don't just blame the government do you expect them to clean the gutter outside your house for you all the time when you keep blocking it with your rubbish?

What's all the noise about Lekki? Most parts of Lagos was flooded today including the mainland. Is the Lekki flood the reason why my colleagues from Surulere got to Vi after 4and a half hours on the road??? Live wherever you want to live and stop beefing those that choose to stay in saner environment. My house wasn't flooded by the way cos the ground is elevated.

Last time I commented on the issue of floor in Lekki is as if I don't know what I am saying. This again is all about nature... No one can fight nature no matter the technology or man's wisdom. Nature can not be suppressed...no matter the sand filling ...is a matter of on time.. innocent people will suffer it. I am living in lekki,I want to build in lekki. Crazy thing I see people do, I begin to wonder.. stole money by some people to buy lands and houses so expensive.. should have been channel to places like mainland extension like Ago palace, igando, iseri, etc. God pleade help lekki for the people that live there don't know what they doing...Show Mercy Lord!

Wow... This is really serious... I pity those living on the ground floors... Una sorry o!

Global warming. Ice caps melting, sea level rises, eventually every coastline will be submerged under water.

Fuck Trump for abandoning the Paris accord. Fuck illiterates who don't know we're all fucked because America elected a fat, ugly, uneducated, con artist.

Sorry, the government cannot really help now. The crave for real estate development was the focus and not the environmental disaster that has come.

Stay in aroom self on the mainland and live peacefully than mansion in Lekki that gives you problem. May God help y'all and not this govt. Meanwhile, it not atlantic yet o, it the drainage problem. God forbid we experience th Atlantic's, lives would be lost. Anyways everybody dey enjoy unmerited favour now as houses wey no get swimming pool before, wey dey beef swimming pool houses,don get now...just watch out for alligator. May God keep you sha.

......I have seen Videos and Have Read About What Happened To Our People Living In Lekki… The flood is horrible...It is a sad incident that no one should wish for anyone. People Have a Right to Live Anywhere on Earth and Living in Lekki Should Not make you Less or Big of a Human. I have also seen Memes Mocking Our People Living In Lekki. This is Absolutely Wrong; There is no Justification For Mocking Our People Who Deserve Your Empathy and Support at this time of their loss, pain and/or grief. It Could be Lekki’s Loss today, tomorrow is pregnant...It could you, me and anyone out there.
In times like this, the Nation and her People Must rise above sentiments of any kind and run to the aids of their neighbors. I was a victim of the 2012 Hurricane Sandy That Took Lives and Destroyed Several properties in New York worth Millions of Dollars, Just Like What has happened To Our People in Lekki and Related Communities. I Will never Forget and I can't hold back tears in my eyes as I write…People Flew from all over the country to help. Churches, Mosques, name it, Rose to the Occasion and Our Support. People I have never met and People I May never know again, came and helped us cleaned our homes; provided us water, food, clothes and shelter. The National Guard, the Police, Volunteers, Red Cross Played their part. We had Hot Water In Winter Provided by the Military Tanks Stationed Everywhere...There was the Police Roaming the Street to Prevent Break down of law and order....We had Helicopters rescuing people from the impact of the hurricane…Corporations Provided Free Items and Most Discounted their prices of goods and serves for the period of the hurricane. Hotels were discounted and even the Public Transport System, the New York Subway System, was free for over 3 months.
This is a Monumental Loss for the Flood Victims. Take a moment to think,...Children will not be able to sleep, Parents cannot go to work, there will be no utilities…..and Everyone under the Sun Should be a part of these Pains... and their loss is our loss.
Yes, During Hurricane Sandy, The Govt Stepped in, Provided Hotels to everyone Irrespective of your creed, your wealth or your status or even Race. There is a national emergency That Calls for Each and Everyone of Us To Rise In Defense and Support of our People and Families that were affected by the Flood. Whether You are in Abuja, Mainland or Benin, If you can, Join in the Support to provide relief to the Flood Victims. This is also the time Corporations to show corporate responsibilities to the Market Where they Make Billions of Profits. …
Time to Act is Now…Let Us Empathize With The Flood Victims, Not Mocking Them……To all Who Have been Affected by The Flood, I dedicate Today To You and Be Assured, You WILL RISE UP…. YES YOU WILL RISE AND YOU WILL BE STRONGER THAN TODAY….I WAS ONCE LIKE YOU …..I feel Your Pains …And Your Struggles......

I was directly affected by the flood. Infact my palour is captured in this blog. I see a lot of people still do not understand that this is a danger that is staring Lagos as a whole in the face. Upper week it was VGC, last weekend Lekki, VI, before Ajah down to Lekki area, Magodo and some parts of Ikorodu were then affected. The fact is simply that the Practice of clearing the canals every year since 2011 has stopped and needs to be started once more. This is why we are appealing to the govt to #PleaseClearOurCanals by direct and indirect actions. The rains return on Friday, the question is what will be done before then?
