Stagnation

“a state of not moving; staying the same way without growth or development”

The Federal Ministry of Justice, Lagos also known as the Old Secretariat was completed in 1906 and was used as the administrative office for the Colony and Protectorate of Southern Nigeria by the colonial masters.

113 years have gone by and in that time the seat of power has been moved to Abuja. Some offices remain utilized as the Lagos liaison office of the Federal Ministry of Justice while other neglected parts become shadows of shadows of their former selves.
