Gani Fawehinmi Park

News broke out in Lagos and around Nigeria on New Year Day 2012 that fuel subsidy had been removed. Nigerians found it hard to adjust to the overnight change that dictated a new lifestyle for them. They would have to pay more for Premium Motor Spirit (also known as fuel). The people refused the new development and Lagos took to the streets. Gani Fawehinmi Park was the meeting point for the demonstration. The park bears the name of a late Human Rights Activist and legal luminary, Gani Fawehinmi. The park, situated beside the busy Ikorodu Expressway at Ojota adds to the beauty of Lagos. I was out to have fun with making images of the public garden. I took pictures of everything that caught my attention as well as some people I met there.

I appreciate your visit.
