    Open And Dirty Drainage System In Lagos (Photos)

    For decades, open and dirty drainage systems have been a prominent feature of roads and streets in Nigeria’s commercial capital.

    The filthy condition of many streets in Lagos State is attributable to the construction of an open drainage system. For some residents, open drainage systems are considered as alternatives to refuse dumps. All these contribute to the notoriously unsanitary condition of Africa's 5th largest economy.

    The construction of exposed drainage systems in Lagos State is a culture that has been sustained over the decades. Even the very recently reconstructed Oshodi-Airport road features exposed drainage. See photos of the open drainage on the newly reconstructed Oshodi-Airport Road. 

    Sadly, these ubiquitous and uncomplimentary sights of open and dirty drainage systems all over Lagos State are what greets and leaves a lasting first impression on first-time visitors to Nigeria.

    It is no news that Lagos state is prone to flooding. The supremely notorious blocked drainage systems is the chief cause of flooding on many roads in the state when it rains.

    It goes without saying, no city in the world that sincerely desires to be taken seriously leaves its drainage system exposed. 

    The Ministry of the Environment through the Office of Drainage Services is responsible for the cleaning of the open and dirty drainage system in the state. Unarguably, this agency of the Lagos State government has failed terrifically in that responsibility. 

    Lagos State is home to about 22 million Nigerians. Lagos is currently home to 65 percent of Nigeria’s businesses, with a presence of over 2,000 manufacturing companies, 200 financial institutions and the largest collection of small and medium enterprises in Africa.
