How Lekki rent is driving people to settlements | Gabriel Nwogu | Stears NG
There may be jobs in Lagos, but are there houses?

..In my father’s time, Ikeja the place to be. Hearing that someone stayed in Ikeja signalled a comfortable life. If you were coming to Lagos, you were heading to Ikeja. It was all that mattered.

Today, Lekki is the new Ikeja; a new enclave for the wealthy, spurred by high prices in real estate. A three bedroom in the area could go for ₦10,000,000 in annual rent. The same type of apartment could be found for less than ₦300,000 in Ogba or Ikorodu.

“I was paying ₦60,000 per year for a self-contained apartment in Agege, but in Lekki, if you don’t have up to ₦200,000 you can’t even rent a good room,” Ajibade chips in. He relocated to the island after he’d lost his job in Agege and got a similar role in Lekki with twice the pay.

“I was asked to pay ₦50,000 for agent and agreement plus two years upfront at ₦180k per year. Where do I want to see that kind of money? How much is my salary?” He laughs.

Ajibade isn’t the only one relocating. Many people flock to the island for promises of a good job, yet house rental prices continue to dissuade them. Is the disparity in rent on the island driven by demand or the sheer indulgence of the affluent?

Ajibade does not doubt that it is the latter. “If you look at most of the houses in gated estates, they are empty. Nobody is renting them, and they don’t want to bring the prices down.”

Although companies like Fibre and Muster are trying to solve housing problems through innovations like shared apartments and monthly rental payments, how far can these go in a state with over 15 million people?
