Lagos - Calabar Coastal Railway - US $11bn



1,400-kilometres long and at the cost of US $11bn, the Lagos-Calabar railway is one of Africa’s most ambitious projects. The rail project will link Lagos in the west to Calabar in the east, while also connecting the cities of Port Harcourt, Uyo, and Aba along the way. Once completed, this transportation network will significantly enhance the movement of goods and services across the region.

Eko Atlantic





Finally, Nigeria has its own smart city. This new coastal city is being built on Victoria Island adjacent to Lagos, Nigeria. It is a focal point for investors capitalizing on rich development growth based on massive demand – and it’s a gateway to emerging markets of the continent.

The proposed Eko Atlantic is expected to accommodate at least 250,000 residents of the city on the project completion. The Eko Atlantic project extending over 9 square kilometres and is also expected to have positive effects in restoring and protecting the state shoreline. At 7km and 40 metres wide, the islands’ walkway will be the longest in the world.

The scheme is approximately 35-kilometre in length with an estimated ridership of a minimum of 500,000 passengers per day. 14 station locations are proposed.

The Blue Line is now being built by China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) and will run 27.5 km from Marina to Okokomaiko, with 13 stations. Lagos State is financing construction of the Blue Line from its own resources.


World Trade Centre, Abuja - $1bn





The World Trade Centre project is a partnership between the FCT Administration and the First Continental Properties Limited, a subsidiary of Church-gate Investment Limited. This will be the first such centre in West Africa, joining 323 other locations in 89 countries worldwide in the WTC network.

The construction site sits on 6,102 hectares of land along the Constitution Avenue in the Central Business Area that is located at the centre of the city of Abuja. It will be a multi-use complex that will comprise of luxury high rise office towers, luxury residence apartments, conference facilities, shopping malls and entertainment facilities.

Lekki FTZ designed to integrate industries, commerce & business, real estate development, warehousing & logistics, tourism & entertainment etc. A considerable number of construction works will be carried out in the Commercial & Logistics Park, including the international commodities & trade centre, the international exhibition & conversation centre, industrial factories, office buildings, hotels and residential apartment buildings. The Commercial & Logistics Park on the long runs is expected to serve as the logistics and distribution centre of Chinese products in West Africa and represent a service demonstration base for the entire Lekki FTZ.

Abuja Gateway Airport





Rhe Abuja Gateway Airport has been designed to be a stunning solar powered gateway that will have the shape of the traditional Nigerian bow harp; the design connects the new Abuja Airport to the central area on the opposite side of the free-way and comes complete with green roofs, giant solar canopy and bricks made from local laterite clay.

Ehrlich Architect’s design symbolizes the weaving together of the country’s many different people. The sweeping gateway brings together the city of Abuja’s modern atmosphere with the cultural heritage of Nigeria as a whole. The plan features an amphitheatre and public space with a photovoltaic canopy to provide power and shade visitors from the sun. A green roof covers nearby buildings making them melt into the surrounding greenery.


Mambilla hydroelectric power project - $5.8bn





As Nigeria looks to boost its energy production to match the needs of its booming economy and population, the government has finally invested into making the Mambilla Hydroelectric Power Project a reality. The US $5.8bn project will connect to three dams across the Donga River in Taraba State, eventually generating a total installed capacity of 3,050MW of electricity.

My friend shush abeg.

All those European countries you post images from to show us how much 'better' they are than Nigeria, how do you think their super-rich land-owning classes got their prime lands?

Was it not via access to state authority, monarchies (where applicable) and state resources over and above the 'commoners'?

Did they auction out the choice lands in a democratic, inclusive way?

You can bet they didn't.

With pictures but zero investment in manpower, or how
No employment of teachers, doctors and other education and health sector workers means we will import Chinese people to maintain the toilets in these buildings and trains

Projects everywhere yet Buhari is not working. Personally, I'll rate him 75/100. If only he didn't take all those loans then he would have gotten a 90.
Most of these projects are actually ongoing for real but the real question is, not many of them is happening in the east. Looks like that's why our eastern brothers want to separate.

These are very ambitious projects, and we're already seeing most of them in progress or even near completion. I hope people will open their eyes and see that we're moving forward as a country for sure. Drop your politics, drop your sectionalism. The people building these are seeing the potential most of us don't see.

Still doesn't make it right. Behind every great fortune is a crime.

The rich keep getting richer, while the poor suffer.
