This is Lagos

The building that collapsed a year or so ago in Lagos Island is still as it was just after the tired invisible giant decided to sit down and rest awhile...

This is sad.It just shows the stae of our state.Things that should shock sane human beings are commmon in our land. God help us.untill the rest of the building collapses and kill innocent people, no one will act.Its a shame.

... we have intitiative after initiative, reams of paper lots of posturing from Engineer X and Dr y all with great ideas of 'beautification' of Lagos !!! bloody incredible !!! no normal society will allow a building of such prominence in the core business district of its economic to be left like this. I thought our great friends, that sinister appendage of Bilfinger und Berger were supposed to be dealing with the building i.e. demolishing. Oh! I know Engineer Hans hasn't presented his report with the usual pomp to His Excellency for the panel of Distinguished Technocrats to review ... it is a mass of mangled steel and rotting concrete, it should take no more than 4 months to demolish and clear the site... I suspect its being held up by a legal hitch ... we must have capable minds who can demolish a building !!!! haba!!!

I saw this building when I was in Lagos last I wonder what the municipal government are waiting for before they demolish the whole building to the ground.

The building has the potential of imploding under its weight and weakened structure thereby creating further problems for everybody.
