Lagos State Government Stops Building Of Structures More Than Three Storeys


The Lagos State Government on Wednesday ordered the immediate stoppage of approval for structures above three floors in Ebute-Metta East and West.

The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, in a statement by the ministry’s Deputy Director, Public Affairs, Mukaila Sanusi, said that the move followed an audit of buildings in the area.

“The soil and topography, the low water level and effects, as well as the inability of structures in this area to bear loads above three floors, were considered in arriving at this decision,”

The Government said this was done in order to secure lives and properties.
