This illustrated book, Sandbank City Lagos at 150, was presented to the public, in Nigeria, on 31st January 2013. In the course of the research John and Gillian Godwin worked in partnership with a historian, Prince ‘Kunle Akinsemoyin, and a former Town Engineer of the Lagos Municipality, Engineer Timothy Aluko, to capture the breadth of Lagos’s story, including its history, landscape, physical layout and unique peoples, with an emphasis on Planning and Buildings.
It is a fascinating account of how Lagos was experienced “from the time of the Bini overlords” to Nigeria’s independence, through the turbulent sixties to the anxieties and infrastructural deficits of the nineties and finally to the resilience, hope and inspirational change of the present.
The narrative has been developed from some familiar sources but relies on the author’s interpretation of the historical facts, particularly those relating to the siting of Lagos and the embedded policies, both political and administrative which, they suggest, have become an impediment to clear thinking, while welcoming the Mabogunje plan as the first essential step in the new approach to the co-ordination of the factors which bedevil the need to make Lagos work as a modern city.
