An SDI delegation from Ghana and Kenya are in Nigeria this week to share 20+ years of experience negotiating successful eviction alternatives. The Nigerian SDI affiliate has been fighting ongoing violent forced evictions for nearly three years.


Yesterday was the Ghana & Kenya team’s first day in Lagos. They started the week with a solidarity visit to the Otodo Gbame evictees, accompanied by the Know Your City. TV documentation team.

On day 2 in Lagos workshops were held on methods to prevent evictions for Nigeria federation members, facilitated by Joseph Kimani of SDI Kenya.

On the last day, the teams from Kenya, Ghana & Nigeria shared years of experience and strategies preventing and developing alternatives to evictions that work for the urban poor.
