In the 80s. What a vision, even when Abuja was yet to see the light of the day!

It means that Hotels of this kind shouldn't be limited to exotic environments like VI. Building a majestic hotel in Oshodi as Berem purported aint a bad idea.

Build them first, and u see people trooping in, thus "tushing" the area.

This is the power of dreams.

Your government says 'Well, we are going to be walking on water soon. And thus is the way we intend to achieve it: ...' And out of sheer courage you begin to invest hugely building toll-gates on every waterfront there is.

Dreams flourish on trust. Trust your gov't's plans and build your plans around it. Chances are your dreams will fetch you gold.

Ayobase...You know Maitama was underdeveloped at that time. Oshodi is a developed area... Is it ghetto or middleclass area again? .
Which ever it is....It can't change. cos It's a developed area. My Opinion grin

He is wrong! It's no longer Nicon...He can only call it 'former Nicon'.....

What more foresight do you need - when an area has just been designated FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY.

you need to study about the aguda panel. The panel was set up by the Murtala Mohammad/Obj regime in 1975 to find a new federal capital territory outside of Lagos, that was how the master plan/blue print for Abuja came on.

There's a master plan of how Abuja is supposed to be after some years. 1980 was still close to 1975, hence the picture shown above. The same master plan is what El rufai was emphasizing on when he began demolition during Obj's regime. Abuja is still developing
