Judging from pictures circulating the media this morning, The Alpha Beach area of Lekki, Lagos has been taken over by massive flooding .
According to resident in the area, the flooding have become a yearly feature of the popular area but this year’s flooding seems to be the worst yet.
In understandable frustration, a resident took to Nairaland to express his mind and also share pictures of the flood ridden area.
“Residents and villagers of Alpha Beach area of Lekki are currently battling flood. This is a yearly occurrence and this years is the worst it has been. Houses are being submerged in water, people are made homeless and cars are stranded.
Year after year residents in this environment cry to the Government for help but it keeps occurring. All the businesses on the beach are now under water and are currently unemployed. A country as strong as Nigeria yet we cannot handle the annual flood crisis. Billions of dollars are spent on the Eko Atlantic City all in the name of a Mega City or is it luxurious living yet the poor are suffering.
I hope the office oqf the Governor of Lagos sees this or better still The President sees this. This is not change, nothing has changed, we need change, we want change”
