He needs to doo moooreeeee!
Sack Okonjo, Alison and Olusegun Aganga and see Jonathan able to do more. If he can put real patriotic Nigerians in the oil, Finance and investment sectors of Nigerian economy, Jonathan will see Nigerians coming to his side.
Asari Dokubo, the reason Nigerians hate Jonathan is because of his ministers inability to turn his promises to reality not because Nigerians hate an Ijaw man leading Nigeria.

FCT World Trade Centre project progressing speedily - Minister
Thursday, 24 May 2012
Work on the 1.2 billion dollar 37-storey FCT Trade Centre project is progressing ``speedily'', Sen. Bala Mohammed, the minister has said.
Mohammed, while speaking on Thursday, said that work on the project, which started in March 2011, had reached the fifth floor. He said the Phase I of the project was expected to be completed in June 2013.
The project is being undertaken under a Public Private Partnership arrangement between First Continental Properties Limited, a subsidiary of ChurchGate Investment Limited, and the Abuja Investment Company Limited, a parastatal agency of the FCT Administration.
Mohammed said that when completed, the mega multi-use complex, consisting of high rise residential and service apartment towers, including conference facilities and retail shopping mall, would make Abuja the next business destination.
He said the FCT administration was giving the investors the necessary support to ensure timely completion of the project, located `strategically' at the Central Business District, the heart of the city.

Not inspired. Low quality that would mean most of these projects will be re-awarded and commissioned again. Just the same old rubbish with local champions moving around and posing for the camera like a bunch of excited wild beasts.

2,600 mw Mambilla Dam Project
Dam in Mambilla
MAMBILLA – A NEW PLATEAU IN DAM DESIGN
Given a unique site and carte-blanche for the design of a high-capacity HPP, the result is technical creativity of a very high order in what will be one of Africa’s largest HPPs – Mambilla HPP (2600 MW) in Nigeria.
Awarded by the Nigerian FEC (Federal Executive Council) in March 2011, to Coyne et Bellier – the Hydro division of Tractebel Engineering (France), the contract for the design and works supervision of the Mambilla HPP (2600 MW) is a first step towards realising a scheme that will more than double Nigeria’s current installed hydro capacity in one go!
A long term investment of this scale needs careful thought and exceptional planning. Taking advantage of the unique topographical and hydrological characteristics of the site – about 600 km from the capital city Abuja, in a very remote part of the country on the Mambilla plateau where the Donga River flows from its source – many technical and economic design alternatives have been considered; allowing the client to review all options when making their decisions.
The concept, with the goal of achieving, at the very least, the 2600 MW target is to use the drop of +/-1000 m from the Mambilla plateau to the plain below to maximise the full potential of the Donga River
MAMBILLA – KEY DESIGN ELEMENTS
■ A main, large rolled compact concrete (RCC) dam and reservoir (storing water and thus regulating river flow) at 1300 m above sea level – Gembu Dam.
■ Water is also diverted off the reservoir towards the western side of the plateau through 3 hydraulic tunnels totalling 33 km intercepted by 2 smaller RCC dams, both at an elevation of 1250 m – Sum Sum Dam and Nghu Dam.
■ Beyond these dams, the tunnels lead into a 1000 m drop shaft tunnelled down through the rock to a massive underground powerhouse. Via a short tunnel, the water then exits the base of the plateau and flows into a tributary river that rejoins the Donga River downstream of the plateau.

Lekki Free Trade Zone, Lagos
VENTURES AFRICA – The Lekki Free Trade Zone (LFTZ), Lagos is primed for investments worth over 170 billion naira ($1 billion), Nigeria’s Minister of Trade and Investment, Olusegun Aganga revealed during the LFTZ Investment forum in Lagos on Monday
During the forum, which also served as the opening ceremony of the Eko Expo 2012, the minister disclosed that “Nigeria is trying to replicate China’s innovation of free trade zone for economic development.” He said, “The highest Gross Domestic Product rate of the Chinese economy is from investment in the free trade zone and that is exactly what we are trying to do in Nigeria”
The Lekki Free Trade Zone, which is expected to provide 300,000 direct and 600,000 indirect jobs in the next five years, had its top investments from Puma Energy Free Zone Enterprise, which plans to invest $400 million (N6.2 billion) in the zone with construction work already in progress.
Other investors include Imad Oil and Gas FZE $200 million (N3.1 billion), China Railway Construction Corporation with $50 million (8 billion naira), and YFK Pharmaceutical FZE with $30 million (5 billion naira).
According to a BusinessDay report, Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola, challenged Nigerian investors to seize the initiative and invest massively in the free trade zone. “Nobody will develop the Nigerian economy if we fail to invest in our own economy”, the Governor added.
Earlier in the year, the World Bank’s Director of Finance and Private Sector Development for Africa, Mr Gaiv Tata reaffirmed the global financial institution’s commitment to assist the Lagos State Government in the development of the FTZ.
The Lekki Free Trade Zone (LFTZ) is located in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial hub, and is ideal for manufacturers and businesses in all sectors. With the city’s population density and ratio of business activities, a FTZ would be apt if the authorities can overcome the perennial blueprint-to-trash can culture projects of this magnitude have been associated with in recent times.

At Unveiling Of $250m Project, Udughan Pledges New Deal
Sunday, 15 May 2011
GOVERNOR Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has reiterated the commitment of his government to the creation of employment for youths of the state and infrastructural renewal.
He said that the future of Delta is very bright and government is hopeful of creating a sustainable economy for the people.
Uduaghan made this pledge yesterday in Asaba, the state capital while unveiling a 250 million dollar tourism project.
The project, Delta Leisure Resort, is a twin tourism initiative with a main park located in Oleri village in Udu Local Government Area. The second, a wildlife theme park, is located at Ogwashi – Uku in Aniocha South Local Government Area.
The project is designed and created by Sarner PFM (Africa) and Sarner UK in partnership with the state government and is aimed at creating new job opportunities and enhancing tourism.
The governor said: “I believe that youth unemployment is the greatest challenge and all our plans are geared towards getting them employed. Our infrastructure are geared towards getting them employed and all our policies and strategies are geared towards employment of the youths.’’
According to the project managers, the project is expected to be delivered within the next two years.
The governor pledged the commitment of the state to the date, assuring that by the grace of God, the project would be delivered on time.
Earlier, the Managing Director of Sarner PFM (Africa), Princess Abiodun Oyefuis, said that the benefits to be derived from the project are immensurable, being a multi-faceted project geared towards enhancing development.”
Apart from an 18 zone edifice replete with ample parking spaces, a retail village, theme parks and Africa cultural village, art trail, waterfalls, casino, sports village, restaurants and a cinema, much of the architecture will draw from Egyptian, American and African influences. There will also be shopping malls boasting a host of foreign and home-made brands.
“We are looking at indigenous names to add to the foreign content,” Awofusi added during her presentation of 25 top global parks for last year. “Disneyland had 5.5 billion visitors with 30 percent of them coming from Africa. I am sure if we probe further, 15 percent come from Nigeria. The chances of getting people from all over the world are very high.”
Two hotels will also dot the eventual landscape. One will be a five-star establishment packing 250 bedrooms in five storeys, while the other will be a three-star haven of eight floors and 504 bedrooms. According to the project team, all the necessaries synonymous with modern-day hospitality inns will be available to eventual tourists.
There will also be private villas and inns for discerning customers who cherish their privacy. These include a range of Floridian, Mediterranean, Oriental and English themed dwellings.
In his presentation of the wildlife resort that will be located in Ogwashi-Uku, the northern part of the state, Johan Louw said the concept behind the animal sanctuary with a capacity for 3,500 visitors per day rested on five main pillars. With conservation, research, education, entertainment and recreation topping the agenda, it would have an adventure park, animal village, safari park, Asaba Zoo and botanical gardens lying next to a five-star hotel of 50 rooms and 38 luxury guest chalets. It would also include cycling and hunting trails while all underdeveloped parts would be for ecological purposes.
A highlight of both projects is an ornamented bridge that will be the first in Nigeria.
