Nigeria: Expert Wants New Master Plan for Lagos

Lagos — The Lagos State Government has been urged to facilitate a new master plan that will highlight where facilities and government utilities, including buildings will be located, as the Lagos masterplan expired since 2000.

Disclosing this at the maiden Town Planners Week of the Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Town Planners (NITP), was the immediate past national president of the institute, Mr. Bunmi Ajayi.

He stated that the masterplan, which was developed and approved by the former governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande, came into being in 1980 and had expired, adding that there was no basis for the current demolition exercise in the metropolis.
