Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade has questioned the Lagos State government over the rise in the demolition of buildings in the state.

According to the singer, the government has become insensitive to the plight of the people, demolishing buildings and rendering many residents homeless.
She decried the rising frequency of these demolitions, mentioning Maryland as one example.

She expressed worry about the negative influence on the country’s real estate value and the loss of hope among residents whose little investments in a better life had been squandered.

She asked the administration to consider alternate options, emphasising the need of improving how such situations are addressed.

She said:

“Lagos State, what’s going on? Does it make sense that people will invest millions of naira and dollars into real estate; buy houses and lands and the state government will demolish the place and render people homeless overnight?

“This thing is happening repeatedly. Right now, Maryland, Mende area is on fire. People are sleeping in their houses, waking up the next day, homeless.

“You’re ruining the real estate value of the state and country, making people lose trust not only just in the idea of Nigeria but lose hope entirely in the little coins they saved to make their lives worthwhile. How is this okay? Why why?”
