I think you meant NESTOIL not OILSERV.

Yes, you are correct. It's Nestoil not Oil Serve. Complete with Helipad. When they decide to turn it into Saka Tinubu Motopark, he will remember he is from Anambra.

Talk about the nature of an Igboman to jump on any bandwagon trend of something good!

Since Air Peace started flying to London, the trend of owning airlines to fly into London and perhaps other European cities will be the new trend.

I wish someone would set up a gas power plant, multiple modular refineries, or light rail connecting two or three major cities in the southeast so that this critical trend will catch on with our rich men.

This one is a miss, bandwagon effect. How many people are flying that he thinks the market is big enough for him, air peace and United Airlines?


Why not focus on your area of strength - oil and gas. Is Obijakson aware that there are proven gas Wells in Alor, Akukwa near Awka, Igboariam, and Amansiodo. And one unserious oil company currently has the prospecting licence OPL 916, 917, 906 and 905. Orient Petroleum is only working on OPL 915 Anambra River which just about 20% of the area.

Companies are rushing to Ogun state because of cheap gas, gas produced by Imo and Delta states, piped to Ogun via Lagos, and made available in a single hub zone. We can have even better in Anambra because we own the gas.

Frankly, I would love to meet the Obijackson, I have some ideas to share with him. He does not know where to invest. If aviation is doing 12% return on investment, oil and gas is doing 50 -60% return on investment especially now all prices have been deregulated.

Hope you and Gerogel are aware that obi Jackson was once building a power plant in okija that stalled? Can't say why it was stalled so he already has this though a long time back.. the name of the power project is century power plant..1500mw

Don't say what u know nothing or little about dear. Obijackson has been into aviation before now. He has been into private jet/ chopper charter service for years... So expanding his business should be a good news not fight. Airpeace is not complaining likewise UN Airline who is currently working on Nigeria to US direct flight. It's time for us to conquer the aviation/ Marlin sector, and the sky is to big. Remember the time of land transportation... Ekenedilichukwu, Ekedum, GUO Okeke, etc, all from Anambra ruled and still ruling the sector, yet all of them are making their mark.

If u stop Obijackson, are u going to stop Kano born AA Rano too?

While Donclimax, Zenith Shipping, E-money... are major in shipping and cargo, Airpeace, Obijackson, UNAirlin... Should lead the aviation sector.

Coming back to Oil and Gas, Obijackson is a major player in Africa. Don't forget he is building a Geometric power plant in Okija.

Biko, why are you hyperventilating and arguing with yourself? We are saying the same thing!

We need more good trends as someone rightly noted in the previous page. We want more positive trends like this, such as building modular refineries, gas-power stations etc. We just need one brave person to launch the trend, and then boom! Our business people will key into it.

Landmark na small thing. I feel no pity for any Igbo man whose industry gets demolished in any other part of Nigeria. The reason Igbo land is not one of the top destinations in Nigeria today is because of the Igbo people themselves.
In Nigeria, there is no ethnic group that dispise their home land like the Igbo people. Imagine an Igbo man saying he can't return to the East because of village people but that same Igbo man is building a Factory in Ogun that is the headquarter of ritual killings in Nigeria. I have lived in Ota for 2 years and I have never seen a society as diabolical as what I witnessed in Ogun state yet Igbo people are still going there to invest. Do you know why? The Yoruba people love their land and see their place as the best place to live in Nigeria. To the Yoruba people, Yoruba land is where you should live year in, year out, but to the Igbo people, Igbo land is only good for living in December. The Yorubas have invested so much in media to portray themselves in good light hence, the positive views everyone has about their place.

I picked up a magazine from AirPeace when they started flights from Lagos to Dubai. Could you believe that the magazine showcased tourist destinations in Liberia, Ghana, UAE and London, and for Nigeria, they showcased, Bonny in Bayelsa, Ikogosi in Ekiti, Lagos, Abuja, Kano and Kaduna but nothing from the East. I was so shocked and disappointed at the same time. Despite all the hotels, casinos, restaurants, and clubs that litter Owerri and Awka, Airpeace could not advertise even one city in the East to at least create awareness about the good things in Igbo land. Do you know how many people booked that Airpeace flight and got to read those magazines? That was a very good chance to showcase some Igbo cities to some foreigners.

I told a fellow Igbo guy that I consider the Aku lue uno mantra a shameful one and he was shocked at my conclusion. I have spent a good part of my life in Lagos and I have interacted with people of different ethnicities. I discovered that the average Yoruba investor is always thinking about investing in Lagos, Ogun or Oyo. Go to Lekki and meet some of the Yoruba real estate developers. Once they cover Lagos, Ogun and Oyo, their next point of interest is usually UK or UAE. The average Hausa man is not even interested in building a bungalow in your land talkless of a mansion, they all send their investments back home. Its only the Igbo people that derive joy in their governors going from Lagos to Abuja to beg Ndigbo to invest at home. It is a big shame. I have never seen Yoruba governors begging Yorubas to invest at home, same with the Hausa but the Igbos think in an alternate direction. Soludo had to leave Anambra to Lagos to speak to Igbo business men to invest in Anambra.

Outsiders are viewing these things, foreign investors are viewing these things. How will they invest in Igbo land if the owners of the land are avoiding their own land. We need to start serious marketing in Igbo land. We have to create an Igbo brand and make Igbo and Igbo land popular. There is no crime happening in Igbo land that does not take place in other parts of Nigeria. The only difference is that, others frequently release good news from their land while Igbos are poor at releasing good news from Igbo land. If 3 people die in Ogun, the news gets 10 thousand interactions, if 1 person dies in Igbo land, the news gets 60 thousand interactions. This is a strategic approach by God-knows-who to always ensure the East is portrayed in bad light and keep the much needed investments away and it's up to us to counter this bad narrative.

We can do that by strictly investing at home. We don't need the traders to relocate, infact we need them to remain in Lagos, Abuja and other Nigerian cities because they will be useful in distributing products made in Igbo land across Nigeria. We also need our media houses to do more in showcasing Igbo land. I am slightly impressed with Afia TV that is doing the promotion already. They are on GoTV and DSTV. We too that have access to social media can do our bit. It's not every time we have to wait for someone to do it, we can also do some of these promotions ourselves on social media. We just have to start.

That last sentence in your post "finish work" for me, I could not put it better myself! I was born into a trading family based in Lagos.........I knew when Igbo traders moved to Alaba international and when they moved to Aspamda...........Those 2 markets somewhat sanitized Isale Eko or Lagos island markets......the salutary effects also impacted Iddo bus terminus and Otto markets...............Onitsha needs a dedicated Town Development Authority....the way Otti established one for Aba. Way too many passenger and goods laden heavy commercial vehicles come into the center of onitsha! It just gives the town a near siege mentality........with all the bedlam that follows such traffic.

The second Niger bridge has opened up a complete new axis that soludo can exploit......why not locate a modern bus terminal in that axis like Enugu has designed for the chaotic holy ghost area?
I hear the same planet design coy that did Oshodi terminal is also doing the Enugu one!

We can mandate all luxury buses ,commuter buses ,trailers and semis to offload in the new terminals, we can co locate goods warehouses and storage units in that axis too! Way too many containers are offloaded inside onitsha markets............I dunno, town planning experts in the house can contribute.......I tire sef!



Exactly. You wonder what kind of people inhabit the Transport and Works ministries and really both functions should be combined. You dont build a road wide enough only for passenger vehicles and then allow Trailers on them. Proper urban planning should not allow large Markets inside inner cities. They should be pushed to wide boulevards and regulated heavily. Cities should have a retail and service inner core, a residential ring and an outer core of industries and warehousing. Dense cities over 50,0000 should have proper public transport with 15-20 seater buses running scheduled routes not tricycles and 5 seater shuttle buses. Anambra cities require city-wide underground drainage systems and sewage lines. These things cost money but they are an investment for the future.

You are so right. People often think skyscrapers are what make cities in developed countries different from our cities. I always point out to them that the best cities where the rich live in those developed countries (Especially here in the USA) look like a bigger version of Awka Millennium City! Where deliberate effort is made to care for every inch of the city and plant trees and flowers generously. This means that we can develop world-class cities too with our current level of technology if we enforce strategies that would make our cities habitable and punish lawless behaviors such as mindless littering and street trading.

If we learn to stop littering our cities, stop the illegal spread of street markets in every open space, and empower groups like the OCHA Brigade to catch and fine anyone dropping litter or sachet water on the street, we would make our cities much nicer.

As you already mentioned, we also need to help private companies set up good transportation systems within and between cities and enforce safety rules, like keeping Keke Napep off the expressway.

These small changes will help make our cities more organized and cleaner. This way, even people from other countries might come to live and invest in our cities if we make them nice to live in.

Nothing concern me with Lagos, I don't care what happens in Eko Atlantic. Our focus should be on making Igbo land the number 1 choice destination in Nigeria. If the Federal Government is marginalizing the South East, the Igbo people should not also marginalize themselves by starving their land of investments. If more Igbo men move their business headquarters to Igbo land, it will attract more investors, both local and foreign. Forget about investing in any Ibeno and focus on Igbo land. A
South African business man once built a luxury resort with an artificial lake in South Africa. There is nothing we can't achieve in Igbo land. Stop advicing Ndigbo to move their top tourism investments to other parts of Nigeria, try to learn from history.

I pray that God gives southeast governors the eye to see where their potential for greatness truly lies.

One key road that I thought Soludo would immediately pursue was the dualization of the GRA Onitsha - Nsugbe junction road as well as linking the road with a new road to the Anambra international airport. Apart from reducing traffic congestion in that area, the new airport road would not only provide a short alternative route to the airport from Onitsha GRA and 33 area, it is also the fastest developing residential and industrial hub in the state.

Again if the 33 to Aguleri road were dualized a bit just to the Nkwelle junction, it would strengthen that whole axis as a great alternative for our people seeking to set up industries in accessible industrial estates the south east.

You're absolutely right, a lot of people want to setup an industry on that axis because of its proximity to Onitsha and the much availability of lands on that area. But the problem here is that the road is yet to be dualised.
From the boundary bridge between Nsugbe and Umueri down to Aguleri Junction will be filled with Industries once the road is dualised.
This road dualisation will also uplift the face of the newly Ikenga Umueri International market that's currently under construction.
We please and urge Anambra state government to put that road into immediate consideration.
As we desperately call out our people attention to invest at home, we should try to provide some basic facilities, at least(lest I forget, electricity is also on a good side on that region too).

Hello guys. I have been following the Eastern threads on Nairaland as a guest for about 4 months now and as a person who has spent all his life in Lagos, I must confess that the South East is much better than the picture I had previously painted in my mind. As an Igbo man who has never crossed Asaba before, the pictures I have seen from the 5 eastern threads on Nairaland has made me decide that I must visit the East when next I travel to Asaba for Christmas.

With the kind of beautiful pictures I have been seeing here and the mindset most Nigerians have about the East, there seem to be a disconnect because most Nigerians don't even know that good things happen in the East. You guys are trying with the exposure by taking pictures of the various Eastern cities but it is not really enough. I think it is time to get more professional with our exposure drive. Nairaland is good for exposure as it's pages get indexed by Google quickly but Nairaland has some disadvantages which are:

1) Images on Nairaland are heavily compressed so they lose much of their quality.

2) The images on various pages are usually mixed with awkward images posted by people who may be envious of the development strides of the East. It does not go well when a tourist is viewing images of Owerri or Onitsha on Nairaland and starts seeing dirty images of wastes and canals, some of which are not even images from the East.

Due to the disadvantages I mentioned above, I am here with a collaborative proposal where we can come together to promote the East on more professional and popular image platforms like Pinterest, Getty, Unsplash and Pexels etc. The idea is to put our heads together, take beautiful pictures of our cities and get them to be accepted on those platforms I mentioned earlier. I wanted to do this alone but, I currently live and work in Lagos so it's impossible for me to take pictures of the East.

Here is how it will work:

1) We create a group where we can share suggestions and images. All members of the group will be known as "contributors".

2) I will be responsible for photo editing, keyword and key phrase research, and uploading the images on the various platforms. Those platforms have pretty high standards for the quality of the images uploaded there, and that is were I come in to edit the photos to try to meet their quality standards.

3) You guys who usually upload images on Nairaland can share these high quality images in a Zip file in the group so I can work on them.

I am hoping that if we get images of our cities on those image platforms, it can help in creating better exposure of the cities in the East. If you search for images of our cities on Google or Pinterest, you may not be impressed with what you will see. Most of the images are of very poor quality which is a huge turn off and they don't really showcase the East well enough. It also doesn't have to be stressful, all we need are about 20 - 50 images of each major Eastern city. That should be enough at least for now.

I am currently working on creating accounts on the platforms I listed and I am hoping to get collaborators to join me on this small project. Remember that we don't always have to wait for someone somewhere to do it, we can actually do it ourselves. If you are interested in this project, kindly quote me. I will open either a WhatsApp group or a Telegram group for all members/contributors to join.

Please I also want you all to note that this not a money making venture, so don't expect to get financial rewards. If you are familiar with the platforms I listed above, you will know that they are all free platforms. The mission of this project is to promote our land and not to make money just as you don't make a dime from Nairaland. If you intend to make money from selling your pictures, you can as well open the accounts yourself and do your business.

Apart from opening the area for tourism due to the massive beaches along the axis as well as new industrial estates, the area also holds the key to maximum food production in Anambra. As that area lies along the shore of the River Niger.

One of Obiano’s greatest achievements was translating his love for rice production into tangible steps to prioritize and kickstart the commercial rice revolution in Anambra state through attracting massive private sector investment in commercial rice farming. To the extent of making Anambra a leading rice producing state in Nigeria today.

One also prays that Soludo’s agricultural agenda will prioritize another area where Anambra has huge comparative advantage. Such as fish production due to abundance of big rivers in the state. Like Obiano did to achieve rice revolution, Soludo could try to attract private investors in commercial fish production to drive development of integrated commercial fish farms along the axis. This will create massive jobs and wealth as well as turn Anambra into a leading fish producing location in West and Central Africa.

1) We create a group where we can share suggestions and images. All members of the group will be known as "contributors".

2) I will be responsible for photo editing, keyword and key phrase research, and uploading the images on the various platforms. Those platforms have pretty high standards for the quality of the images uploaded there, and that is were I come in to edit the photos to try to meet their quality standards.

3) You guys who usually upload images on Nairaland can share these high quality images in a Zip file in the group so I can work on them.

I am hoping that if we get images of our cities on those image platforms, it can help in creating better exposure of the cities in the East. If you search for images of our cities on Google or Pinterest, you may not be impressed with what you will see. Most of the images are of very poor quality which is a huge turn off and they don't really showcase the East well enough. It also doesn't have to be stressful, all we need are about 20 - 50 images of each major Eastern city. That should be enough at least for now.

I am currently working on creating accounts on the platforms I listed and I am hoping to get collaborators to join me on this small project. Remember that we don't always have to wait for someone somewhere to do it, we can actually do it ourselves. If you are interested in this project, kindly quote me. I will open either a WhatsApp group or a Telegram group for all members/contributors to join.

Please I also want you all to note that this not a money making venture, so don't expect to get financial rewards. If you are familiar with the platforms I listed above, you will know that they are all free platforms. The mission of this project is to promote our land and not to make money just as you don't make a dime from Nairaland. If you intend to make money from selling your pictures, you can as well open the accounts yourself and do your business.



Nice one bro, welcome on board...

Don't say what u know nothing or little about dear. Obijackson has been into aviation before now. He has been into private jet/ chopper charter service for years... So expanding his business should be a good news not fight. Airpeace is not complaining likewise UN Airline who is currently working on Nigeria to US direct flight. It's time for us to conquer the aviation/ Marlin sector, and the sky is to big. Remember the time of land transportation... Ekenedilichukwu, Ekedum, GUO Okeke, etc, all from Anambra ruled and still ruling the sector, yet all of them are making their mark.

If u stop Obijackson, are u going to stop Kano born AA Rano too?

While Donclimax, Zenith Shipping, E-money... are major in shipping and cargo, Airpeace, Obijackson, UNAirlin... Should lead the aviation sector.

Coming back to Oil and Gas, Obijackson is a major player in Africa. Don't forget he is building a Geometric power plant in Okija.


Century Power, not Geometric

Apart from opening the area for tourism due to the massive beaches along the axis as well as new industrial estates, the area also holds the key to maximum food production in Anambra. As that area lies along the shore of the River Niger.

One of Obiano’s greatest achievements was translating his love for rice production into tangible steps to prioritize and kickstart the commercial rice revolution in Anambra state through attracting massive private sector investment in commercial rice farming. To the extent of making Anambra a leading rice producing state in Nigeria today.

One also prays that Soludo’s agricultural agenda will prioritize another area where Anambra has huge comparative advantage. Such as fish production due to abundance of big rivers in the state. Like Obiano did to achieve rice revolution, Soludo could try to attract private investors in commercial fish production to drive development of integrated commercial fish farms along the axis. This will create massive jobs and wealth as well as turn Anambra into a leading fish producing location in West and Central Africa.
The place is not along the shoreline of the Niger. The shoreline of the Niger lies in Anam and Nzam. I discovered that Anambra population zones are always far away from Niger shoreline except Onitsha city. Ogbaru and Anambra west which control the longer shoreline of the Niger remain sparsely populated

Taah gbafuo!

Nekwa nkanka mmadu na akogheri ife omaro

If Nsugbe isn’t along the coast of the Niger, it is your village in Osun that is along the coast. Mad people everywhere.
