This has got to be the only picture in which I have seen President Jonathan and Asiwaju Tinubu smiling at a single point of interest, what do you think?

I was waiting to see who would post first.

The 'ACN/APC e-warriors' or the 'laptop gang'?

I hope we don't end up with a 'civil war' here.

Why won't Tinubu not smile? This was at a ceremony to mark the reclamation of land for Eko Atlantic City. GEJ was praising the Eko Atlantic initiative same as Senator Clinton had also waxed lyrical about the project. That is why Tinubu and Fashola are grinning cockily like proud parents grin grin grin

Clinton praises Eko Atlantic City - it's the new Dubai
Friday, 22 February 2013 06:23 Yemi Johnson




Bill Clinton


Former president of the United States who was special guest at a ceremony to mark the reclamation of 5,000,000 square metros of land that is now Eko Atlantic City, a massive investment cum business city created by the Lagos state government, has praised the vision and the thinking behind the city, predicting that it would become a business and tourist destination of choice in a few years time.

“I want to thank the government and the developer for building this city. They have reclaimed five million square metres of the land initially lost to the sea. That marks the beginning of this amazing wall, the Great Wall of Lagos...I am convinced that within five years, people will be coming from all over the world to see this wall,’’ he said.

“Most recently, my state in New York was hit by Hurricane Sandy in which thousands of people lost their homes and many lives lost. These people will come to Nigeria. People want to live near the water where they can have a feel of nature. You have provided a beautiful option to brand the city, the state and the nation. The shape of the stones of the Great Wall shows the understanding of how the water reacts; people will come from all over the world to study the wall,’’ Clinton further stated.

Also speaking at the ceremony, President Goodluck Jonathan described the city as another addition to Nigeria's list of successes in recent times. “This landmark event is continuing the good news narrative that Nigeria must embrace permanently. It took 19 years for us to win the Nations Cup again; the trains that now run from Lagos to Kano took us another 19 years to get them back on track.

“And in this same year preceding our centenary, we are gathered here to witness the ground breaking of a modern city that will rise from the Atlantic bed in the commercial nerve-centre of our beloved Lagos.This is good news indeed,” Jonathan said.

“Although it is not finished, it is already a success story. The road that was lost to the coastal erosion is back and now motor able...“Its huge potential have been the engine of growth and sustainable development. To this end, the enabling framework for kick-starting the privatisation of this sector is now being put in place. As part of the overall transformation agenda, this administration is committed to harnessing the potential, organising the construction sector as an important growth area for the economy,” the president added.

Eko Atlantic is one of Africa’s most inspired developments, reclaiming land from the Atlantic Ocean to build a new city for 250,000 people. The development is privately funded and supported by Nigerian banks in association with international investors.

According to the developers, Eko Atlantic will be home to 250,000 people and a workplace for another 150,000. The new city is expected to have waterfront areas, tree-lined streets, efficient transport systems and mixed-use plots that combine residential areas with leisure facilities, offices and shops. The development will also have its own power generation plant, sewage treatment facilities and fresh water supply.

Political etiquette means Clinton will always be regarded as Senator Clinton ,beyond office, and not President Clinton.

You're right he was not. He was actually Governor of Arkansas before becoming President. I thought he had been a Senator but realise now I confused issues with his wife Hilary who had been a Senator. Thanks for the correction.

He would have been addressed as Senator Clinton had he been a senator before becoming president.

Did you even read all that transpired above before calling him a dunce? He corrected himself and an explanation was put up about how etiquette provides that he will be called Senator if he had been a Senator before becoming President (not my words). Please show some decorum.

Abeg, fashi the immature little troll. What Nairaland reveals to me is that Nigeria currently produces a lot of angry, cowardly, frustrated and unfulfilled youths who want to go around fighting everything and everyone on the net but will never physically confront the oppressors who emasculate them daily to the extent they are turned them into impotently hateful creatures. The guy who corrected me appropriately remained polite and gracious and it has to be an e-thug without manners making noise. Too many sad losers here. The thing is that their lives will still suck after logging off Nairaland.

Shocking to see how Clinton appears to have aged rapidly. There was talks he had a serious medical condition but Clinton himself came out to deny it. Wish the dude the best sha. Many still rhetorically speak of him as the "first black American president".
