|Niger Delta: Constructive Ideas On Developmental Projects For The Region by nairaner(m): 9:41am On Aug 22, 2009|
We all know the predicament of the Niger delta region which has carried on over the years as a result of basically neglect, mismanagment and financial recklessness by not necessarily people at the helm of affairs but the politicians/non-politicians around them who furnish these people with developmental project ideas to carter for their selfish interests. Heaps of condemnation and blames on the Niger delta leaders/stake holders (some of whom lack ideas and most of whom mean well for the region but mis-informed by selfish individuals) abound all over the internet.
The task of improving the social and environmental conditions in the Niger Delta is is enormous. We as Nigerians cannot leave it to just the people at the helm of affairs (particularly the M.D of the Niger Delta Development commission -NDDC, NigerDelta Minister with billions of naira at their disposal to develop the region) who need be furnished with genuine neutral-based developmental ideas rather than those implemented by politicians soley for personal gains or interest.
We as a people, as professionals on neutral grounds with no selfish interests are in a better position to profer such ideas with a potentially greater positive impact on the Niger Delta region and its inhabitants. Let us use this medium as a constructive tool to communicate innovative Niger Delta development projects for implementation geared towards improving community needs, social and physical infrastructure development, economic development, technology development, environmental remdiation & stability for this Niger Delta Region.
It is my view that concerned citizens(politicians/non politicians) will come accross our suggested ideas who will pass them to the authourities who will inturn study/screen them and with the Grace of God implement them for the benefit of the Niger Delta and its inhabitants.
This is not the time for finger pointing or passing blames as we already have that all over the internet but no such constructive one as this thread is intended to be. I urge you all to remain positive in your proposed developmental project ideas and hope positively.
"Ideas rule the world", Long live Nigeria.

Here's your first free piece of advice. Do not build concrete jungles like in Lagos. Build communities of Townhomes with a lot of common use green spaces trapped by the arrangement of the Townhouses. This will help bring your community closer.
Do not use the concept of plots for single homes, but look at subdivisions with lots instead. Lots should be sized at least 1/4-1/3 an acre with a mac of 70% impervious leaving the rest as green space.
Planning/Developing cities take a lot of foresight and I will suggest that you seek reputable international experience to steer you. Here are some pictures to give you ideas

Here is a design prototype that I have done for Naija. You can contact me through my profile if you would like to see it built in the ND. BTW, I can create communitites like in the first satellite image in the ND.
