The Health of Mother Earth Foundation (HOMEF), has called for restraint on the dredging of Makoko waterfront in Lagos state.
The Director of HOMEF, Nnimmo Bassey said in a statement in Benin by Kome Odhomor, Media/Communication Lead of the foundation, urging the state government as well as the contractors to stop the dredging and listen to the residents.
According to him, there is need for the government to have open conversations with the people who have deep knowledge of the environment and have made massive economic contributions to the state.
He noted the idea of using development as a foil for grabbing waterfronts, displacing and destroying the lives and cultures of the people must be stopped.
“Makoko and other underserved communities in Lagos and elsewhere in Nigeria, deserve to be upgraded with adequate supply of social services and not displaced for the benefit of land speculators and other forces of accumulation by dispossession.”
He recalled that in recent years, demolition threats have hung heavily over the community, and the people feared that what happened in Maroko in 1990, which had 300,000 persons displaced and many lives lost, may be visited on them.
He regretted that less serviced communities in Lagos have faced similar fates with human rights abuses and deaths trailing such assaults.
Wetlands must remain wetlands and people who have kept such ecosystem balances should be supported and not criminalized or victimized.
