That is only if FG neglect other places

Not necessarily. Lagos will only grow as a business magnet whatever the FG does or doesn't do. The way everyone rushes to Dubai and New York today, is how they'll be rushing to Lagos, the world's biggest city.

Actually it's YOU that needs to wake up, and escape the little, limited box you've placed yourself in that renders you incapable of seeing anything beyond your nose.

Broad St Lagos, 1951 ......and 2019.



If you'd shown people on Broad Street Lagos in 1951 the picture on the right, and said ''that's Broad Street in 2019'', many would have said ''Dream on sir.''

Stop typing ignorant rubbish.

The Lagos skyline comprises ''blocks'' of older AND newer buildings like every other big city on earth.

And most of those high rises you're seeing do NOT date to the ''1970s'', but are far more recent. I grew up in Lagos, so I know.

Even if Eco Atlantic have the tallest skyscrapers ,that still won't make Nigeria a developed country because a huge percentage of Nigeria is still underdeveloped.
UAE is the same size as (Akwa ibom,Cross river,Bayelsa ,River State), It generates $59 Billion dollars per year . Nigeria generates 40 Billion dollars per year . Most of UAE is developed . UAE population is 9 Million, Nigeria's population is 200 Million. Lagos pop. 15 Million,Dubai pop. 3 Million
Development does not mean tall skyscrapers. If all of Nigeria looks like the second and third pics below with good roads,sidewalks,road marking,drainage,traffic signs ,laws and order,effective institutions,that means Nigeria is developed.
The third housing development sketch is me just saying : isn't it better to focus on building an organized society for benefit of the real citizens ,instead baseless and vanity projects ?
If you disagree with my assertion above with fact , I'll kindly reason with your opinion.

First of all it is Eko Atlantic, not ''Eco Atlantic''.

Secondly, the two paradigms - social and economic development - are not mutually incompatible. In fact the latter leads to the former, as you need money to provide those social benefits you outlined.

And Eko Atlantic is not a ''vanity project'', but an effort that will employ directly and otherwise, up to 3 million Nigerians , while boosting economic activity and national GDP immeasurably.

with our ever growing population, those houses won't do us any good, we need sky scrappers, and in the next 40years, most cities like Kano, port Harcourt, calabar, Akwaibom, Anambra, Lagos, will have 60% skycrappers, but wetin concern me sef, if Lagos like, make e be like heaven in 2090, I may not live to see it

You are absolutely correct. In the next 40 years, cities like Port Harcourt, Calabar, Kano, Onitsha etc will be UNRECOGNISABLE from today. Their city centres will boast skyscrapers and modern infrastructure, and the cities will have all round improved services from what we have today.

By then Nigeria's rail system will be completed and integrated, with every state capital connected to the network. This will dramatically reduce the cost of doing business, leading to widespread economic prosperity.
