A walk through


... the city centre speaks of its politics, its past, its self representation for the future.

The city airport is named after him He was assassinated in 2005. A brand new mosque was built, he was buried next to it. There are plans to build a massive monument to mark his grave. His private company was primarily responsible for the swift rebuilding of the city centre.

In the re-imagining of the city lavish new mosques were built, a very old church is building a new bell tower to match the dimensions of the grand new neighbour.

A bombed cinema hall seems to be preserved to mark the violent times that the city has seen.

Another cinema hall, in another part of the world has been converted into a church. Lagos.
