Immaculata Writer/Journalist


I write about how Africans are making a living: digital and informal economies, creative entrepreneurship, women in business, disability, labour and urban issues.

Highlight:
1. Dispossess: Evictions for Development?, for Heinrich Böll Stiftung.
As Lagos pushes to become a 'world-class' city, gentrification increases with more low-income residents being displaced under the pretext of 'public interest'. This research summary explores how evicted victims are impacted and its implications on trade and the Lagos economy.
