Nigeria Closing Noisey Churches

7 July 2016

Lagos, Nigeria has been on a cosmopolitan drive for the past few years. Many things have been put n place to improve the city and make it function a particular type of way. As a result noise pollution is high on the agenda. However this strict policy on noise has resulted in many churches being closed in Lagos. Mosques have also been closed alongside bars and hotels who are not compliant with state regulation.

The majority of the churches have been affected are those in temporary tent structures, which will no longer be allowed. As they are not able to offer the necessary sound proofing that would allow them to operate within the guidelines. Nigeria has set a target for Lagos to be noise free and a mega city ready to compete globally by 2020.
