What I meant about "Whites" was the fact that the Nigerian Polotical leaders act and think like whites who didn't care about the rest of the black majority in South Africa. The stadium is to be build by one of South Africa's Soccer Billionare and he used to play soccer himself and he started the soccer team soon after arriving from the US in the early 70s. I hope the like of JJ Okocha, Ngwanko Kanu and so forth will also invest back into the community.

Yes, I agree with the guy who says that we need not to blame the politicians solely, you the people of Nigeria need to also take responsibility by forcing your local municipalities to create by laws and so forth. On the last local government elections in South Africa, the President of the ANC, The Hounarable Thabo Mbeki, promised the nation a better service and the now elected local governemnts are made to sign 3 months contracts for which after that their service are evaluated and if you fail you are taken out of the office immdeiately. Why can't Obasanjo introduce the same thing?

We should learn from each other as Africans. The West, The Asians, Europeans etc are helping one another and they thrive for making sure that the people's lives are better, why can't our African governments do better. Which African nation is rich through oil? The answer is none. We got so many natural resources in our continent but they are being utilised by Europeans for the own benefits.

I think this is the time for you Nigerians to stop complaining and make sure that you take upon yourselves to make your country a better place. I love Nigeria as I said before and I hope everyone will rise to the occasion and realise that Nigeria can easily be a better country than South Africa and money other countries accross the world.

Must-a-far

I thought that project was done? Wasn't it Julius Berger building it back in the late 90's? But the one in Abuja is done right?

Nigeria will never be like Lexington, at least not in your lifetime. You need to bring down your expectations. Maybe you might compare Nairobi or Abidjan, but not any Major city in the USA.

nobody is blaming poliSTEAL-tians all i'm saying is if policies are totally implemented without someone throwing in a spanner or wrench then projects such as the forth mainland bridge would get completed in good time and more projects as such would see the light of day. ever wonder when the stadium in surulere lagos would ever get finished and peoples would start to use it.

@Everyone

I think Jo-burg has something like that but what do they gain from that:

1) Highest crime rate in the world;

2) highest Unemployment rate.

Seun

Politicians create the environment for Investment to thrive. Tax Incentives, Zoning Laws, Tariffs, Loans,Export free zones,Industrail zones and capital expenditure ETC. No wonder we cannot develop and maintain anything. We elect people that cannot think and our populous suffers. Seun a perfect example is New Orleans post Katrina. The Mayor and companies have come up with a robust rebuilding plan that in part helps the city rebuild, and give businesses an incentive to take the risk.

Feel free to build your dream city. No one is stopping you.

If it is worth building you will find investors. If you do not find investors, it is not worth building.

Manipulate the government into spending common resources on your personal agenda would be wrong.

everyone always blames the politician, if they release that cash the people under them would chop the money, the problem is in all of us. they are more important things to do in nigeria 1st before thinking about creating a city like that.
