11:31 am
we had to lagos nigeria and ask people why there is such a big gap between the rate and then we meet the canyon southwest. we used to tackle social problem with later on in, so molly land, i'll introduce you to the country with the mil mabel cup. mm . welcome back. former tea in africa, it's reducing yes or finance or reforms. an opening economies have led to businesses and money. but his wealth is not evenly distributed. now get this africa as green, wealthy as below ness has more money than the bottom. 50 percent of africans combined. and nowhere is this disparity more evident than in legos. herron, major, us commercial capital. poverty is 15 minutes
11:32 am
a week from extreme wealth. well, come to me, go ask because the biggest city. many believe that hard walk, just anyone can make it here. that's why thousands of young people are migrating here from west africa and around niger with dreams to heat the big. the result i'm exploring population an a plus bring economy. what as the economy boom for them. the gap between the rich and the poor gifts whiter. this is michael cook, probably the biggest, floating slum in the world. about 250000 people live here on legal. there is limited access to the plantation services, electricity schools or even clean water. i'm just looking at this one. and he has a very strong smell of you need to be decades of law.
11:33 am
now just you may need to leave a cane. they show me the was born and raised in mexico. he has agreed to sure around his home. this is actually i slept, slept with my breast. busy furniture is like, this is just, this is really big, but this is, this is the good news for what to take. what i say in this community. we believe you know, believe my money. but every, every minute from the hud and i to 11 through them will be live also the all one is good. one might be successful. so we don't offer anything disney anymore. that's not government. i'll do this for 60 percent of legal oceans leave in slums
11:34 am
and course our communities. many informal settlements, also risk demolition as the government expands the city. but just a 15 minute drive for michael lee goes island. most nigeria and celebrities, and 1000000000 is called the school for the vast majority of young niger areas, the to living here is about as only imaginable watching the scrape. yes, that doesn't stop the sky high property prices, illegal score lead poverty and only imaginable will exist. we've been driving defense. what's economists worry, the bubble of wealth and ready c, p cannot last. such inequality could was seen insecurity and leave 1000 initial cycle of poverty. when people are poor, to pull them out of that poverty, you need the right level of access for this access and several dimensions. number
11:35 am
one is access to finance. it won't education, health care. while the reach the sheltered lives on legal island, insulated by their mansions and wealth communities like michael, just about to your heads above water. what, how long this dynamic will last? if anyone's guess, they're going to stay in michael for a little longer. this informal settlement started a sufficient village years ago, but today it has grown into a metropolis on stilts. the local state government has threatened to demolish it several times, but us faced resistance from people who call it home. madry, a hoss, some of the wealthiest people on the african continent. so why does a place like mckoko still exist? that is what my colleague it, it came on you find out. and this week's version of our street debate.
11:36 am
ah, hello and welcome back to the 77 percent. this week we are in lagos, nigeria, more specifically where in muckle and informal area in this place. and so we're wondering how to those people who live in extreme poverty lives side by side with some of the richest on the continent. and what does that disparity to society? well, i've got here a panel of very good looking people who are ready to speak to me, and i'm gonna start with henry who works for oxfam. this is the 1st time that you're hearing mckoko. just give me your views so far what, what do you think? i haven't quite seen if people are impoverished as i'm seeing here today, i will see in an environment asa visited how some scene here today. i will quite seen lack of government present like i'm seeing here today is, is quite disheartening. i must say. all right, let me speak to henry because i wanted to ask him, having grown up, you grew up in local korea and what growing up there was light, so green of him. okay. for me out seeds. a privilege?
11:37 am
yeah, it's a privilege and it says that i had to, you know, try as much as was you linda, by the through yes. going with parents if you're inside to get that. and definitely you really want to push you to do more, more in a scenario by your parents to on know really day to keep it on. even the environment you find yourself are people are not pushing dots, a level of education in h o u. the other yeah. of thousands of children. bremner under st. snow. going to school. yeah. so i'm just up what, you know, my parents, i get that and the fight. hinuit duff la fight for me to make sure that i degrees. vindication. right. so what you're describing gays, what academics would say is a cycle of poverty j. daniel, is it something that you also experienced? no, you didn't grow up in mexico, but as an informal settlement as well. well, it was the experience similar to what? well, deserving minus similar but not this extreme because i mean coming from a place where you have to constantly provide for yourself. you have to constantly
11:38 am
do things for yourself just like, oh my trying to police said that the governments are not really interested in our well being. we've seen on government organizations come down to these communities just to take pictures because they want to post on social media. they want to make it look like they're doing something. so i think what is the real problem? it's not that we don't have the resources, but the problem is they really don't see this. people are a bit before before we, before we get to the 2 of you, let me invite to the other daniel. yes, we have to daniel's, and to henry's, i hope you can keep up with the gobs every year when the budget is read out. these a lot of money being pumped into the country. why isn't it getting here? it's been a systemic issue for people not to be a butcher for government are supposed to kid before the needs of people living is going to speak, but to take care of their dear you so much greeting so much. are problem of people, not on a sunday funding, there is need for people to be to be taken care of. so leadership is a major problem and that is all your local. all right?
11:39 am
for me, it had something to say to me and then henry all gets, and what's daniel, i say this is like this. i'm going to go of not because the government goes on with that issue developing well because the government, the government is bent on commercializing, places like this. so places like these items slide by to government and com, right? that they are sold, disappears to some government officials on that in 2 years. this, this is 115 going to be more used. and then if that happens in 5 years, you are going to see a fancy sta pierre. that is going to be sold for the sam rich people that are buying the sim assets that we have in nigeria. okay. let me ask henry, because having in this community, was that a fear that you had because i've had it said that, yeah, people don't know if tomorrow they went to wake up and their house is going to be under water. some of them though, really once you're in a video house, because you're scared of him. but smyrna gonna just come on, take all of us. he, we so why am i doing this for the morning when i'm looking at it? if governments want him to have up with this, this what he, what, okay, what at social life you would, how did you want to keep surviving?
